Quantitative risk reporting for investment funds
Outsourcing of market risk, VaR, leverage, liquidity risk, credit risk, default risk, counterparty risk, back-testing and stress-testing reports
Faced with different regulatory obligations (UCITS, SIF, AIFMD, EMIR, MiFID), management companies need to meet risk measurement and reporting requirements in a streamlined process and at an acceptable cost. Finding economies of scale whenever possible is necessary in order to add value for their investors and customers and free time of risk managers for monitoring and recommendations.
The ability to provide meaningful and useful risk reporting in an automated fashion is a factor increasingly considered by directors, investment managers and promoters prior to engaging a management company.
Your risk measurement and reporting challenges
The UCITS, SIF and AIFMD regulatory frameworks include specific requirements related to risk measurement and reporting, such as gross and commitment leverage, VaR, back testing, stress testing, which need in some cases to be disclosed to investors or regulators.
The specific characteristics of some asset classes such as private equity, real estate, infrastructure, distressed or high yield securities the unavailability of internal resources or the frequency at which such risk monitoring is required are challenges which are sometimes difficult to address in a timely manner by management companies, which can delay time to market and/or regulatory compliance.
Furthermore, the recent increase in disclosure and reporting obligations and the multiplicity of regulations to be addressed at the same time by risk managers (UCITS, SIF, AIFMD, EMIR, collateral) fosters the use of a single risk software or provider to benefit from economies of scale, providing data once for multiple reporting purposes. This is especially true for AIFMD regulatory reporting where the majority of information to be disclosed is risk related (e.g. VaR, liquidity profile, stress tests).
Leveraging on a large quantitative risk team and on a proven expertise in risk modelling and reporting for UCITS and non-UCITS funds, Deloitte can assist you meeting these risk reporting requirements by outsourcing the production of risk reports, reducing your time to market and enabling your risk managers to focus on their core activities.
