Hong Leong Capital selects MSCI for multi-asset class risk management

RELATED TOPICS​

Hong Leong Capital has chosen MSCI’s Risk and Performance Suite including BarraOne, RiskManager and CreditManager to help manage risk across its multi-asset class portfolio.

Lee Wai Sing, Chief Risk Officer for Hong Leong, says: “As a holding company of an investment bank and asset management company, we find that the MSCI suite of products fit into our requirements from a risk management perspective. We have a three-prong approach to risk infrastructure, namely availability of robust yet flexible risk-engines, ease of implementation, and conformation to industry or regulatory developments, such as stress test capabilities. Also, our needs include requirements from sell-side investment banking activities coupled with buy-side investment management companies. Having to deal with a single vendor for all the risk infrastructures and risk reporting needs would greatly alleviate the need for resources in data management, risk analytics development and hardware maintenance and allow us to focus on our job of managing risk.”

“In an increasingly interconnected world, there is heightened awareness of the importance of risk management among financial institutions in Malaysia,” says Raj Manghani, Head of MSCI Risk Management Analytics in Asia Pacific. “As one of Malaysia’s most respected financial institutions, Hong Leong sets the benchmark for corporate behaviour and we are delighted that they have chosen MSCI for end-to-end risk management.”
