Reech Capital PLC has launched RiskHedge, a risk management engine for the hedge fund market, which will give hedge fund managers access to the kind of sophisticated risk technology formerly only available to large investment banks, at a cost specifically tailored to hedge funds.
The product is capable of handling all asset classes and trade structures and offers reporting flexibility and customisation. This flexibility makes RiskHedge suitable for all types of fund, regardless of trading style and size.
The ASP delivery method of RiskHedge enables hedge funds to access the service directly with minimal entry costs and on a pay-per-use pricing structure. In addition, RiskHedge can be white-labelled and co-branded by both prime brokers and hedge funds, allowing the service to be offered to underlying clients and investors.
Christophe Reech, chief executive of Reech Capital, said: There is increasing pressure for transparency coming from investors, counterparties and regulators. This places a demand on hedge funds to demonstrate risk management techniques and risk-based returns via flexible reporting this lack of transparency can be held responsible for the reluctance of investors to embrace alternative asset classes. We, at Reech Capital, recognised that there was a limited availability of sophisticated risk systems that could also be implemented at a cost appropriate to hedge funds and have developed RiskHedge to fill that gap.
