Maples Fund Services launches fully-integrated risk solution for hedge fund managers

Wednesday, October 03, 2012
Opalesque Industry Update - Maples Fund Services, a leading independent global fund services provider and a division of MaplesFS, has expanded its hedge fund capabilities with the launch of a MaplesFS Connect risk dashboard that will complement the services provided to fund administration clients with a fully-integrated solution for on-line risk reporting. This dashboard will further extend the MaplesFS Connect suite of on-line solutions.

The new dashboard leverages the industry-leading technology platform that Maples Fund Services developed for its sophisticated, bespoke risk reporting mandates. Leading practices developed with individual clients have been incorporated into a pre-configured risk dashboard that can be rapidly implemented. Hedge fund managers can use the dashboard to obtain insights into their portfolio, enhance their investor reporting, and demonstrate proper risk monitoring.

“With the new MaplesFS Connect risk dashboard, we are incorporating the best of what we have learned from our work with large hedge fund managers and institutional investors, and are making those capabilities available to any of our existing and future clients,” Tyler Kim, CIO of Maples Fund Services, said.

The MaplesFS Connect risk dashboard is distinguished by its ease-of-use, making data readily accessible at multiple levels of abstraction. With the dashboard, hedge fund managers can view their portfolio holdings and performance, monitor allocations and concentrations, see risk-return analyses, and understand value at risk. The MaplesFS Connect risk dashboard can also be customised to meet individual client needs, and additional features can be developed in concert with clients to reflect their proprietary risk management frameworks.

“In an interconnected global financial system, it is in our collective best interests to promote sound risk management practices,” Scott Somerville, CEO of MaplesFS, said. “With MaplesFS Connect, we are pleased to provide hedge fund managers with the tools needed to ensure that idiosyncratic risks implicit in their alpha-generation strategies are well understood by their investors and boards.”
