Momentum Investment Solutions & Consulting (Momentum ISC) is the latest to adopt RiskFirst’s market-leading risk management platform, PFaroe, as it targets growth in the UK investment consulting space. The ISC team, which was formed in August 2014, already has over £10 billion of assets under advice, and is focusing on large defined benefit (DB) pension sponsors and trustees. It will use the risk analytics platform to help model, implement and monitor sophisticated asset allocation, liability hedging and de-risking strategies.
Peter Hall, Senior Investment Consultant at Momentum ISC, says: “Our team has over 15 years’ experience advising large private sector DB pension schemes, and a demonstrable track record of developing innovative solutions. To support this advice, we needed a top-end, pensions-specific analytics platform. PFaroe won out for its ease-of-use and high level of sophistication allowing us to model complex asset strategies. Indeed, PFaroe’s analytics will be an important part of our offering as we structure and implement very precise mandates – looking at risks and returns in granular detail.”
