Astin selects Reech for hedge fund risk monitoring

Reech will provide a bespoke version of its web-based RiskHedge reporting tools. The software extends value-at-risk analysis to Astin's investors and provides a daily commentary on the portfolio's adherence to its risk limits.

Astin specialises in arbitrage volatility trading in global equity and equity derivatives markets. The selection of Reech as a risk monitor comes as the Astin Vega Fund – a $50 million hedge fund which treats volatility as a tradable asset – prepares to launch on December 1.

Jeff Mehmet, risk officer at Astin, said RiskHedge would provide independence and transparency in reporting.
