Standard Life Investments, the global investment manager, has adopted RiskFirst’s PFaroe to help formulate liability-aware investment solutions for pension fund clients.

The risk analytics system will allow Standard Life Investments to analyse solutions from multiple perspectives, illustrating the impact of alternative allocation strategies on the Value-at-Risk and expected returns of portfolios.

Recognition of the capabilities and the value of PFaroe is gaining traction across the industry, resulting in greater levels of standardisation and thereby helping to enhance efficiency and collaboration between all pension fund stakeholders.

Matthew Seymour, CEO, RiskFirst, comments: “Standard Life Investments is a major player in the UK Investment Management industry, and we are delighted that they have chosen our technology to help them grow their business and provide continual improvement in service to current clients. It is also another significant step towards PFaroe becoming the industry standard – something that, given the system’s web-based nature, allows all parties to interact easily, driving deeper collaboration to the benefit of the pensions industry as a whole.”

Mark Foster, Investment Director, Pensions Solutions, Standard Life Investments, says: “PFaroe allows us to position our asset solutions and capabilities within the context of the pension fund’s overall portfolio. With better liability information and analytics, we can illustrate our new stable of liability-aware investment solutions that better match fund objectives from a risk versus return perspective.”

He adds: “PFaroe has been adopted to provide analytics capabilities across several of the independent consulting firms with which we work. Sharing the same numbers and underlying assumptions increases efficiency, and allows us to work more collaboratively with clients and consultants to present solutions in a more meaningful context.”
