CENTRALIZED PORTFOLIO ANALYTICS – Charles River IMS centralizes portfolio & risk management, scenario analysis, and performance measurement in a single workspace. Portfolio managers benefit from a comprehensive and actionable view of exposures, positions, and orders.

UNDERSTAND AND ANTICIPATE RISK EVENTS – Risk analysts can design rigorous stress tests based on either historical events or hypothetical shocks, and portfolio managers can perform “what-if” analysis to gauge the impact of asset allocation decisions and proposed trades on risk exposure.

FULL INVESTMENT LIFECYCLE COMPLIANCE – Automated compliance and risk monitoring across the entire investment lifecycle helps firms meet client mandates and requirements. Extensive pre-built rule libraries help insurers and pensions monitor and comply with select country and US state-specific insurance guidelines.

ORDER AND EXECUTION MANAGEMENT – Multi-asset order and execution management capabilities help improve trade execution and provide access to global liquidity providers. Portfolio managers, risk officers and traders share a single, comprehensive view of orders across the trade lifecycle.

EXPLAIN PORTFOLIO PERFORMANCE – Extensive performance measurement, attribution and risk reporting capabilities help increase transparency and enable managers to communicate detailed investment results to all constituents, including investment committees, trustees, risk officers and regulators.

CONFIGURABLE AND SCALABLE – Charles River’s configurable and scalable architecture allows firms to incorporate bespoke risk models and analytics, and integrate seamlessly with back office accounting systems and other third-party providers. The cloud-based operating model helps ensure up to date technology and security, higher data quality and 24×7 availability.
