Risk Intelligence is the brainchild of professionals with over 100 years combined industry experience. Our story begins with the founder’s previous roles as Senior leaders and Directors which enabled them to assess and build investment and risk processes across a spectrum of investment managers, Insurance companies and Banks.
A common and recurring theme was the lack of understanding of the true nature of investment risks, their integration into portfolio management decision-making processes and generally inefficient Middle Office processes. Many managers can inadvertently expose investors to risk issues as part of their decision-making process. Investors feel the pain when these risks manifest themselves. Risk Intelligence was created with one single goal; to address these inefficiencies in the Investment Management arena, whether they are operational or analytical and improve customer outcomes.
What differentiates us from the competitors is our approach to risk, our working model and a representation at the decision-making level. Our approach is quantitative risk assessment and performance measurement that aides the internal investment process and at the investment committee level.
Our working model is different in that we have dedicated teams for each client. These teams act as client’s own risk and middle office. The benefit is more personalised service and a team with intimate knowledge of client’s portfolios.
Representation at the decision-making level ensures that risk is given due importance. Risk is evolving in its nature and often ignored part of risk/reward matrix. This ensures that decision-makers understand components of risk and return.
