GLOBAL - Reech Capital has launched RiskHedge, a risk management engine for the hedge fund market, which will give hedge fund managers access to the kind of risk technology formerly only available to large investment banks, at a cost specifically tailored to hedge funds.
The product is capable of handling all asset classes and trade structures and offers reporting flexibility and customisation. This flexibility makes RiskHedge suitable for all types of fund, regardless of trading style and size, according to the firm.
RiskHedge can be white-labelled and co-branded by both prime brokers and hedge funds, allowing the service to be offered to underlying clients and investors.
Christophe Reech, chief executive of Reech Capital, said: There is increasing pressure for transparency coming from investors, counterparties and regulators. This places a demand on hedge funds to demonstrate risk management techniques and risk-based returns via flexible reporting - this lack of transparency can be held responsible for the reluctance of investors to embrace alternative asset classes.”

This week's edition of Professional Pensions is out now.
The government is in talks with the UK and Irish pensions regulators over how to protect members of cross-border schemes in the event of a no-deal Brexit.
The equalisation of guaranteed minimum pensions (GMPs) is at least two years away from being completed, and could take longer than four years for some schemes, a poll has found.
The Pensions Regulator will consider if schemes should be required to have professional trustees and assess the case for greater regulation of administrators and system providers, PP can reveal.
