AIMCo Selects FactSet Investment Risk Management Solution

Alberta Investment Management Corporation (AIMCo), one of Canada’s largest and most diversified institutional investment managers, has selected FactSet as its investment risk management solution.

Remco van Eeuwijk, chief risk officer at AIMCo, says: “To be considered world class in our approach to risk management, AIMCo required a partner that complemented our organisation and enabled us to focus on our core competency. By providing us with a holistic platform that enables us to integrate risk management with portfolio management, while addressing market data management and operations, FactSet is that partner.”

Following implementation of the FactSet risk management solution by the vendor’s professional services group, AIMCo will have access to risk management, portfolio analytics and investment research.

FactSet recently extended its multi-asset class solution set with the addition of a linear risk model and the integration of the Cognity fat tail approach acquired through the acquisition of BISAM.

On the AIMCo deal, Rob Robie, senior vice president and global head of analytics solutions at FactSet, says: “This is an important win as it showcases the benefits of FactSet’s unified risk capabilities, which are a powerful combination of our multi-asset class risk offering advanced by the Cognity risk framework.”
