US-based Rocaton adopts RiskFirst’s PFaroe risk analytics platform

Rocaton Investment Advisors has adopted RiskFirst’s PFaroe web-based platform to help clients better analyse and manage pension plan risk.

Rocaton is the first investment advisory consulting firm to use the platform in the US.
 
Rocaton currently has approximately USD400 billion in assets under advisement for clients, including defined benefit and defined contribution retirement plans, healthcare and insurance companies, endowments and foundations, financial intermediaries, and private wealth clients.
 
RiskFirst is a risk analytics provider in the UK, which, through its partnership with Winklevoss Technologies, is gaining a growing foothold in the US. Its core product, PFaroe, is a real-time, web-based valuation, analytics and reporting platform designed to help risk managers gain deeper insights into their risk exposure across multi-asset portfolios and master regulatory complexity.
 
“Rocaton prides itself on a tailored approach with our clients, designing investment portfolios to reflect their specific objectives based on robust modelling of market risk and return expectations. We are excited to leverage the advantages of PFaroe’s asset, liability and risk analytics, which gives a holistic view of clients’ plans built on a robust analytical framework,” says Joe Nankof, consultant and partner at Rocaton. “We’re confident that PFaroe will enhance the dialogue we have with our clients and enable them to implement decisions more effectively by directly accessing real-time reporting and enhanced analytical capabilities.”
 
Benjamin Reid, president of RiskFirst, says: “We are delighted to have Rocaton on board as the first major US investment consultancy to adopt our PFaroe platform.  In today’s more complex and ever-changing asset allocation and risk management landscape, we are witnessing increased demand for quality and consistent risk analytics delivered in an easy-to-use format.  As a result, PFaroe is now establishing a growing presence in the US.”
