Helps investors better manage their hedge fund investments using analytics calculated on the position-level holdings of each fund
Over 100 leading hedge fund investors, allocating over 800bn USD to hedge funds, use RiskMetrics HedgePlatform as in integral component of their Best Practice investment, risk management, and governance processes. Because position-level detail is not revealed, hedge funds maintain their investment edge while investors are able to perform robust due diligence, monitoring, portfolio construction, and risk management.
The service has three components:
- HedgePlatform collects holdings data of hedge funds, in most cases directly from administrators
- The positions are modeled in the state-of-the-art RiskMetrics system
- Investors analyze funds, individually and in aggregate, using the interactive web-based tool
HedgePlatform allows for more robust analysis than mere returns-based, exposure-based, or standardized exposure-based approaches. Institutions can perform position-based, full revaluation exposure, sensitivity, stress test and risk contribution analysis on individual funds, portfolios of funds, and portfolios of hedge funds in combination with traditional and other alternative assets.
