After 23 years of comfortable obscurity providing powerful analytical software tools and financial economic expertise for one of the world’s oldest, largest, and most renown money center banks, Empirical Modeling & Analytics, Inc. is making its official debut as EMA Softech and unveiling its new web site, http://www.emasoftech.com.

The re-born company provides returns-based style analysis (risk profiling and attribution) and asset allocation software solutions on a worldwide basis to large financial institutions, Registered Investment Advisory (RIA) firms and trust departments of small to mid-sized banks.

Now the company plans to offer technological tools and analytical services that formerly were available only to one of the world’s top asset management companies to the much larger universe of financial services companies, institutional investors, asset managers, money managers, and advisers serving high net worth individuals and pension plans.

The company plans to roll out a suite of proven software products and services over the next several months. These will include:

  •     A web-based productivity tool used to rapidly compare and reconcile two sets of data, including Microsoft Excel spreadsheets or CSV files;
  •     A communications portal that provides real-time private equity investment updates for investors and advisers and deal tracking for plan sponsors;
  •     A way for trust department officers to monitor and manage their client’s legacy funds and be compliant with OCC Regulation 9;
  •     Investment industry research, analysis and consulting services for investment advisers, fiduciaries, plan sponsors, foundations, endowments, Taft-Hartley Plans, financial institutions and trust departments of small to mid-size and regional banks;
  •     Custom analytical software programming for financial services companies.

The company was founded as a consultative research and production resource for investment advisers, plan sponsors, fiduciaries, and a 200 year-old global custodial bank, all of whom are current clients. The founder, James B. MacBeth, PhD, was an associate of Eugene F. Fama, PhD at the University of Chicago’s Booth School of Business in the mid-to-late 1970s. The two men collaborated on financial economics and capital markets research, and published several research papers together.

The financial upheaval of the recent severe recession and turmoil within the financial services industry offers EMA the opportunity to broaden its customer base, said CEO Charles Gabriel.

“Over the years,” he said, “we have developed a suite of financial software application and tools that we utilize in providing consulting services that analyze and model investment portfolios and risk adjusted manager performance.

“What makes EMA Softech unique is our ability to rapidly develop software tools to meet the informational and operational requirements of the investment committees/trustees and advisers who serve high-net-worth investors or trust funds. Our consultants and development team are business people first and foremost. We understand this industry and employ a consultative approach to solving problems for our clients.”

Working out of their book-lined offices in Plano, Texas, north of Dallas, EMA Softech’s research and development team is led by PhDs in statistics and research, most of whom have MBAs and substantial management experience.
