S&P Capital IQ Launches New Portfolio Risk Solution Delivering Real-Time Risk Analysis For Multi-Asset Class Portfolios

NEW YORK, June 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- S&P Capital IQ today announced the launch of its Portfolio Risk solution, an advanced risk and scenario analytics tool that provides traders, portfolio and risk managers with the ability to make decisions about the pricing, hedging and capital management of multi-asset class portfolios in real-time.

Available on the S&P Capital IQ desktop, the product brings together leading risk and portfolio analytics acquired through last year's purchase of R 2 Financial Technologies and S&P Capital IQ's extensive market and reference data. The Portfolio Risk solution offers a fully integrated data and analytics platform, eliminating the need to invest in separate data to run risk systems. In addition, it gives users the ability to use interactive portfolio dashboards to aggregate data or drill down to the most detailed level of fundamental financials and research, enhancing understanding of impacts of potential changes on P&L at an actionable level. These views are comprehensive, yet easy to change and organized to suit individual needs.

The Portfolio Risk solution covers a diverse range of asset classes from cash, fixed income and equities to exotic derivatives. By offering best-in-class instrument pricing, portfolio analytics, scenario analysis and stress-testing capabilities via shareable dashboards, it facilitates communication and collaboration around risk and investment strategies while also providing full transparency into underlying methodologies and on-the-fly calculations.  These features ensure that risk metrics can be calculated quickly and that new scenarios or market strategies can be tested and acted upon swiftly.

"In just over a year since our acquisition of R 2 Financial Technologies, we have successfully brought together rich data, sophisticated analytics, and relevant market commentary, news and analysis," said Lou Eccleston, President, S&P Capital IQ.  "The result is that our clients can quickly generate a transparent, fully customized risk picture enabling them to react quickly to changes in the market and to new investment ideas."

"We are just beginning to leverage the depth of S&P Capital IQ's data resources to deliver what we call 'risk intelligence,' including the power to gather new insights into how portfolios behave under varying scenarios," said Dan Rosen, Managing Director, S&P Capital IQ. "We have assembled one of the most experienced teams of risk and financial engineering experts in the world and dedicated them to delivering interactive, real-time risk analysis as a central part of the investment decision making process."
