Cambridge Associates adds RiskFirst’s PFaroe to portfolio construction toolkit

RELATED TOPICS​

Cambridge Associates is enhancing its portfolio construction toolkit with the addition of RiskFirst’s web-based risk analytics platform PFaroe.

PFaroe allows on-demand stress testing of multiple scenarios to assist plan sponsors in reviewing complex analytics of the risks in defined benefit plan assets and liabilities.
 
Sponsors are provided with an analysis to review the probability of particular outcomes for their defined benefit plan.
 
The reporting of both assets and liabilities is made possible through an alliance between RiskFirst and Winklevoss Technologies, a provider of defined benefit liability analytics.
 
David Druley, Cambridge’s global head of pensions, says: “Over the past 30+ years, our clients have become increasingly more sophisticated in terms of how they are managing the risks inherent in their pension plans. We believe that each client is unique, and therefore, each client requires a customised approach. Through RiskFirst’s PFaroe offering, we are able to enhance our existing analytics, allowing our clients to obtain a more robust understanding of their specific asset and liability risks. Combining the PFaroe platform with our comprehensive manager research capabilities and our innovative thinking on growth portfolio construction and liability hedging gives us a robust toolkit to help our clients build customised portfolios.”
 
Matthew Seymour, managing director, RiskFirst says: “We are truly delighted to have Cambridge Associates become a user of PFaroe. Given their position and reputation within the market, we see it as a huge endorsement of our approach and product. We also welcome the way they are intending on using PFaroe and believe it will truly be to the benefit of each of their clients.”
