An increasing trend in the last few years is the growth of alternative investments – mostly to get steady yield and/or to additional return.
Besides modeling challenges, analyzing risk for Alt. investments include –
1. Data Management
– Ability to manage this data along with other traditional asset classes to get a consolidated view across the portfolios for risk/performance/accounting
2. Lack of Pricing data
– May need to use ‘proxy’ sometimes
3. Separate systems (maybe ‘legacy’) to manage alternate investments
A more modern solution will need the capability to hold all asset classes together as one solution.
This will enable firms to access portfolio data along with risk, performance and accounting all together in real-time.
Thus providing managers to focus on efficiently managing such multi-asset portfolios.
