Buy-Side Risk AIM: Bastion of Best-of-Breed

Best-of-breed risk management systems continue to thrive, and successful vendors’ solutions address data management.

Boston, December 13, 2018 – The technology tools used by risk management teams are vital to firms’ operations. In the wider context of buy-side technology architecture, front-to-back platform deployments have challenged the traditional best-of-breed model for smaller functional components such as risk. But risk management remains a bastion of stand-alone specialist systems.

Leveraging the Aite Impact Matrix (AIM), a proprietary Aite Group vendor assessment framework, this report examines the risk technology landscape for buy-side firms and segments the relevant systems along the lines of vendor strength and product performance. Recognizing specific vendors for their strengths in critical areas, the AIM framework in this report offers a detailed analysis of the following vendors: Axioma, BlackRock Solutions, Bloomberg, Calypso Technology, FactSet, Fincad, FIS, IBM, Imagine Software, Intellect Design Arena, MSCI, Murex, Numerix, Quantifi, State Street, and StatPro. Ortec Financial and RiskFirst are also profiled.

This 127-page Impact Report contains 46 figures and nine tables. Clients of Aite Group’s Institutional Securities & Investments service can download this report, the corresponding charts, and the Executive Impact Deck.
