Boston, MA (PRWEB) March 29, 2012
Alternative Asset Risk Management (AARM) Corp. today announced the official launch of AARM AssetStar™ Reports, providing private equity investors an independent, unbiased, comprehensive risk assessment and complete summaries of the investment strategies, relevant market segment trends and performance relative to relevant benchmarks and peer groups. This is the first private equity investment risk assessment of its kind that is delivered as on-demand digital-media.
AARM AssetStar™ Reports cover the entire spectrum of private equity funds and fund managers. The reports feature unique, comprehensive and transparent performance measurement variables, including: AARM Peer Percentile (%), a reflection of performance, relative to a relevant peer group, across a distinct range of performance metrics; Discrepancy, an indicator of performance consistency over time; and AARM-FOIA™ Alpha, a performance comparison against the relevant AARM-FOIA™ Global Private Equity Index. They are contextually relevant, interactive and available on-demand in an electronic format.
“AARM AssetStar™ uses a consistent methodology to calculate and present industry performance and general fund, manager or portfolio information,” said Jerry Rao, AARM Board Member, Chairman of VHDC & Founder-CEO of Mphasis. “AARM AssetStar™ serves to filter the thousands of bona fide private equity opportunities available to investors, providing a consistent summary of manager strategy, a review of track record and relevant industry trends. This facilitates relevant, apples-to-apples comparisons and meaningful investment analyses, and can also validate recommendations and assessments of investment opportunities and strategic fit.”
AARM AssetStar™ Reports are supported by the powerful, SaaS-based, on-demand, AARM AssetAnalytics™ platform. This framework 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.
“For too long, investors in private equity have been without access to comprehensive and transparent performance analyses and comparisons of their investment decisions and strategies,” said Dr. Gitanjali Swamy, AARM Chairman and CEO. “Now, with AARM AssetStar™ Reports, investors in alternative assets will be enabled with unambiguous information about a fund’s committed but uncalled capital (dry powder) and exposure to various sets of risks and performance comparisons.”
