Client breakdown includes: hedge funds, fund of hedge funds, money market funds, financial institutions, pension funds and endowments. Over 50% of IA's USD 250 billion of assets under analysis come from single hedge fund managers and fund of hedge funds which can be attributed to IA's award winning Risk Transparency platform, highly regarded client services, and customers' need for intuitive, robust and usable risk tools.
Increasingly, the trend among fund managers and investors has been to partner with third-party risk management specialists who provide an independent assessment of a fund's risk profile to enable a portfolio manager to safeguard their investments.
