Cambridge Associates adopts RiskFirst’s PFaroe in the UK

Following success in the US market, the global investment advisor will use RiskFirst’s PFaroe risk analytics platform in the UK to enhance its own systems and allow clients to obtain a more robust understanding of their specific asset and liability risks.

LONDON--()--Cambridge Associates, the global investment advisor to institutional investors and private clients, is expanding its use of RiskFirst’s real-time analytics and reporting platform, PFaroe. Having announced in August 2014 that it had adopted the platform in the US, Cambridge will now begin using PFaroe in the UK.

PFaroe provides a comprehensive suite of liability, asset and risk analytics on consistent bases. This allows investment advisors such as Cambridge to interrogate and test potential investment strategies and solutions from multiple perspectives. PFaroe’s regular, easy-to-access analytics then allows solutions to be more effectively monitored and reported.

Matthew Seymour, Managing Director, RiskFirst, said: “We are truly delighted that Cambridge Associates has decided to use PFaroe on a global basis, and it’s a great testament to the success they have already had in the US market and we look forward to working with them to further develop their UK business.”
