FactSet, a global provider of integrated financial information, analytical applications and industry-leading services, today announced that active asset manager J O Hambro Capital Management (JOHCM) selected FactSet as its investment risk management and reporting solution.
Driven by the convergence of risk and performance, increasing regulation, and more sophisticated investment strategies, FactSet has been expanding its multi-asset class solutions for more than 20 years. With the recent launch of FactSet’s linear risk model and the integration of the fat tail approach acquired through the recent acquisition of BISAM, it now has one of the strongest multi-asset class analytics, performance, and risk management offerings in the industry.
"JOHCM chose FactSet’s multi-asset class risk package because it provides a comprehensive, flexible, and competitively-priced way to monitor factor sensitivity in portfolios and avoids unnecessary complexity," said Sandy Black, Investment Director, J O Hambro Capital Management.
Following implementation by FactSet’s Professional Services Group, JOHCM will have access to FactSet’s award-winning solutions for risk management and reporting, as well as its industry-leading client service.
“FactSet is focused on providing clients with flexibility and choice around their risk modeling assumptions and functionality,” said Rob Robie, Senior Vice President, Global Head of Analytics Solutions, FactSet. “We are delighted that JOHCM has selected FactSet, validating our leadership as one of the premier multi-asset class risk and analytics solutions in the marketplace.”
