Users Can Access Hedge Fund Manager Performance Anywhere
NEW YORK, NY – October 31, 2012 – Risk-AI and BarclayHedge have collaborated to produce the first hedge fund risk application for the iPad. The new application allows users of Risk-AI’s Transparency Analytics software to view hedge fund data and analysis wherever they can use their iPad.
“This application allows users to quickly research hedge fund managers and review fund information anytime and anywhere, even without Internet connectivity,” says Aleksey Matiychencko, senior partner and CEO of Risk-AI.
“For example, you could do a quick check on the performance of a hedge fund manager you hear at a conference or meet at a networking event. It could also prove useful during due diligence meetings with managers, or when presenting hedge fund information to clients and investors.”
Transparency Analytics software utilizes the extensive hedge fund performance database compiled by BarclayHedge, the global leader in alternative asset research.
“Our partnership with Risk-AI is helping bring reliable hedge fund data and analysis out into the marketplace, wherever iPad connectivity is available,” says Sol Waksman, founder and president of BarclayHedge.
“By combining the extensive hedge fund data collected by BarclayHedge with insightful analysis and mobility, Risk-AI has set a new standard for accessing and evaluating hedge fund manager performance.”
Current paid subscribers to the BarclayHedge database can now monitor risk analysis of 4991 funds and 1338 funds of hedge funds via their iPad for an additional $50 per month.
Risk-AI is currently the only software vendor that provides hedge fund risk analysis software for iOS platform. Their core philosophy is to focus on those statistics and charts that provide most relevant insights into the hedge fund risk profile.
“Our selection of tools is based on both academic research and practical experience,” says Matiychencko. “We’ve analyzed hundreds of hedge funds and applied that analysis to build our sophisticated yet user-friendly software.”
