Lombard Odier Selects Bloomberg to Streamline Risk Management Processes

Lombard Odier Investment Managers, the asset management business of the Lombard Odier Group, has adopted Bloomberg’s PORT Enterprise solution to support portfolio and risk management across multiple assets classes.

Lombard Odier IM is a long-standing client of Bloomberg’s order management system AIM, and first integrated PORT Enterprise back in 2019 to support performance attribution and risk management of its fixed income holdings. As a next step, the firm this year has decided to expand its use of PORT Enterprise to include equity portfolio attribution calculation, in order to unify portfolio and order management across its equity and fixed income asset management business, using Bloomberg’s Buy-Side solutions.

Alexandre Meyer, COO of Lombard Odier IM, says: “We’ve had a close collaboration with Bloomberg for many years, and it was a natural step for us to adopt PORT Enterprise. Using Bloomberg has enabled us to streamline our operating model by providing us with one infrastructure for our multiple workflows for equity and fixed income. Instead of having several separate systems, we now have all securities defined and disseminated in one way across our organization – this creates efficiencies and saves time. Furthermore, we were able to quickly and easily expand our use of PORT Enterprise thanks to the very stable production environment, despite the pandemic.”
