Eurekahedge and Riskdata partners to offer new version of FOFiX Active

Eurekahedge and Riskdata are pleased to announce that they have entered into partnership to make hedge fund databases supplied by Eurekahedge, the leading alternative funds research company, available through FOFiX 3.1, the new version of Riskdata’s flagship risk management service for fund of hedge funds.

The new service will incorporate FOFiX Active, which enables FOFiX users to seamlessly import data feeds from Eurekahedge databases directly into the application at the click of a button.

Riskdata’s FOFiX risk management solution is specifically designed for the needs of fund of hedge funds and investors into hedge funds. It covers all stages of the risk management process, from risk profiling, screening, monitoring, portfolio construction, risk testing and risk reporting.

Alexander Mearns, CEO of Eurekahedge said, "Eurekahedge is delighted to be working with Riskdata to offer our mutual clients access to the world's largest alternative fund database, from within Riskdata's leading risk management, portfolio and hedge construction platform."

Ingmar Adlerberg, chairman of Riskdata commented: “We know our clients use external hedge fund databases for certain important functions, and this feature allows them to import this data very quickly. This dramatically assists investors searching across thousands of hedge funds for new candidates that precisely match a specific risk profile. This allows our clients to leverage to the full the AlphaRisk Screener function in FOFiX, which enables investors to rank and select external funds not only by their risk appetite, but to match precise portfolio ‘risk style’ targets, as well as performance objectives.”

“In current markets it is more important than ever for investors such as funds of funds to spot new possible investments quicker, so they can fill any gaps in their portfolios in terms of funds with specific risk styles.”

Riskdata has agreed arrangements with Eurekahedge to ensure that any changes in the structure of the databases are smoothly incorporated into the FOFiX interface.
