RiskMetrics links fixed-income trading system to its risk management system

RiskMetrics has struck a co-marketing and sales agreement with Park City, Utah-based Theoretics, a developer of fixed-income trading and risk management systems. RiskManager will be integrated with Theoretics’ Telemark trading and risk management system. Telemark provides pricing and portfolio analytics, including stress-testing for all fixed-income and equity instruments, and is targeted at traders and risk managers. The fully integrated system will cover all areas of pricing and risk management in fixed income and equities, the companies claimed.

Before a trader executes a trade, they can price it through Telemark then run it through RiskManager to see how it correlates with their portfolio, said Stephen Harvey, global head of sales and marketing at RiskMetrics.

The product will be marketed to banks, hedge funds, corporations, broker/dealers and mutual funds worldwide. Ohio-based Huntington Bank has already purchased the new product. It currently uses the Theoretics system in its trading and portfolio management areas for all fixed-income and derivatives pricing and portfolio analysis. The RiskMetrics system, when linked to Theoretics, will handle the additional credit and market risk analytics of Huntington's portfolio.
