Boston, MA (PRWEB) February 01, 2012
Alternative Asset Risk Management (AARM) Corp. today announced the official launch of AARM AssetAnalytics™, a powerful tool that enables investors in private equity and other alternative assets to more effectively make, monitor, and report on investment decisions. This new SaaS-based, on-demand platform, the first of its kind, synthesizes essential information to empower investors with unbiased insight throughout the investment lifecycle. AARM AssetAnalytics™ is built on a framework that encompasses a comprehensive set of risks, including cash, diversification, and performance risks, among others. The introduction of this signature product significantly advances AARM’s vision to provide private equity investors the kind of powerful, efficient, and cost-effective tools that have long been available to investors in traditional asset classes.
AARM AssetAnalytics™ delivers systematic, standardized, and synthesized information and insight. It provides for a comprehensive review of the entire investment lifecycle, from creating the investment thesis and conducting market analysis to sourcing, diligence and portfolio management. It also allows for critical measurement and evaluation of a broad set of risks and performance measures.
“Investors in private equity have long been without easy, cost-effective access to unbiased quantitative and qualitative tools for delivering investment results,” said Gitanjali Swamy, Chief Executive Officer of AARM. “ Now, with the launch of AARM AssetAnalytics™, investors can gain keen insights through a platform that addresses every aspect of private equity investing, starting with a comprehensive risk-reward framework, supported by industry benchmarks, and delivering unbiased and complete private equity investment management. This unique, powerful, on-demand capability offers particular value to family offices, private wealth managers, and endowments without a large staff of costly research analysts.
AARM AssetAnalytics™ was built to enable investors to support the entire process from industry insights, sourcing, diligence, and portfolio management, with comprehensive risk-reward oriented analysis.”
AARM has also signed a partnership agreement with aSpark Inc., a provider of IT solutions to the financial and media industry, which will serve as the integration partner in delivering AARM AssetAnalytics™ as an end-to-end solution.
Minder Cheng, former Chief Investment Officer at Barclays Global Investors as well as BlackRock’s Index and Capital Market division, commented, “When investors have access to better information and tools, they make more informed and better investment decisions. We saw this type of information enhancement, along the dimension of fund returns, risks and benchmarking, significantly benefit investors in the mainstream investment fund space and lead to substantial AUM growth in passive, active and exchange-traded funds. AARM’s platform will fill the void in the private equity world as well, by delivering unbiased insights that investors have not had access to, until now. “
