Buy-Side Firms Increasing Demand for Solutions that Cover Risk and Wider Portfolio Analytics, Says Aite-Novarica Group

New report advises systems that offer configurability but not complexity; Aite-Novarica Group profiles 17 vendor solutions in latest Aite Matrix

Risk management is a critical part of the investment process that can act as an independent function to ensure compliance with regulations and client mandates. As risk providers face greater requirements to provide a portfolio analytics package, consolidation pressures set expectations of risk systems to include continued model innovation and broad asset coverage, expansion into private asset classes and models, ESG risk analytics, as well as stable experiences and performance at scale. 

In a new Impact Report, Aite Matrix: Multi-Asset Buy-Side Riskresearch and advisory firm Aite-Novarica Group leverages the Aite Matrix, a proprietary Aite-Novarica Group vendor assessment framework, to evaluate the overall competitive position of 17 vendors, focusing on vendor stability, client strength, product features, and client services. These 17 vendors are Adenza Group (Calypso Technology), BlackRock, Bloomberg, Confluence, FIS, FactSet, Finastra, MSCI, Murex, Northstar Risk, Numerix, Orchestrade, Qontigo, Quantifi, SS&C Technologies, TS Imagine and Wilshire Associates. This report also profiles Broadridge, FinCAD, and Moody’s Analytics.
“Buyers should consider SaaS platforms and cloud-native deployments to future-proof tech stacks,” said Paul Sinthunont, Strategic Advisor at Aite-Novarica Group. “Cloud-native solutions are becoming an important consideration for buy-side firms as they shift away from on-premises implementation. Clients expect technology platforms to be able to scale with businesses without performance issues.”
