West palm Beach (HedgeCo.Net) – Leading risk analytics provider Measurisk, LLC, an affiliate of J.P. Morgan Worldwide Securities Services (WSS), today announced that it has crossed an important industry milestone in modeling the full positions of over 1,000 hedge funds – making it the largest position-based hedge fund analytical platform in the industry.
Measurisk acts as an independent intermediary facilitating the flow of risk information between hedge funds and investors. Measurisk receives the full positions from the hedge funds, but only provides summary risk and exposure statistics to investors. In this way, investors receive the risk transparency they need, while hedge fund managers maintain the confidentiality of their individual positions.
Measurisk also announced that the platform now includes managers that collectively make up more than 50% of the total $1.3 trillion* hedge fund industry assets.
“We are excited that the industry has chosen Measurisk as the preferred outlet to bridge the needs of both the investor and the manager" said Andrew Lapkin, President of Measurisk. "In today’s markets, transparency and risk management are paramount. Position-based risk information provides investors with a higher level of information necessary to make the best investment decisions – especially when having to navigate these difficult market environments.”
Measurisk’s independent, third party risk solutions are designed to address the needs of pension plans, endowments and foundations, family offices, insurance companies, hedge funds and funds of hedge funds. Measurisk compliments the full breadth of J.P. Morgan WSS services including: fund administration; custody; performance analytics and securities lending.
