First State Super selects BarraOne risk management platform
First State Super (FTC) has selected BarraOne, MSCI’s multi-asset class risk management and performance attribution platform, to help its investment process.
Richard Brandweiner, chief investment officer for FTC, says: “During the selection process we spent a considerable amount of time with a number of providers as well as their current users. This was to ensure we selected a high quality product that we can understand and extract a considerable amount of value from.”
BarraOne provides integrated risk and performance analytics with global, multi-asset class coverage for public and private asset portfolios and has been widely adopted by leading asset owners. FTC’s investment team will use BarraOne to run regular risk analysis across the portfolio to help validate where the various risks are.
Brandweiner says: “We are delighted to deepen our relationship with MSCI. We are current users of a number of their other tools and have been impressed with the quality and service they provide.”
Michael Anderson, executive director and head of MSCI Australia, says: “The continued adoption of BarraOne by some of the largest fund managers in Australia reinforces the value of MSCI’s risk tools and the strong demand from institutional investors for our products and services as the profile of risk management continues to rise. We look forward to working with FTC, one of Australia’s largest and most influential super funds, as they further develop their risk management processes.”
