LONDON, June 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Northern Trust (Nasdaq: NTRS) can now offer integrated reporting to clients across the globe, through a tool which consolidates predictive risk management, performance evaluation, and compliance analysis on Northern Trust's Fundamentals dashboard.

The tool, designed to save clients' time, help them with regulatory compliance – particularly related to UCITS III – and make it easier for them to manage their investments, is the latest in a series of continuing product enhancements from Northern Trust's Investment Risk and Analytical Services (IRAS) group.

"Clients are increasingly faced with a plethora of predictive risk, compliance and performance analytics," said Ian Castledine, global head of Investment Risk product, for asset servicing, at Northern Trust. "By developing this new tool to consolidate all the data into one integrated dashboard, our clients can now view in one report, information they require to control their investments."

The newly integrated reporting dashboard, refreshed daily, is appropriate for institutional clients, such as pension funds, insurance companies, foundations and endowments, as well as some ultra high net worth clients, and fund managers across the globe. The solution is tailored to client needs in that clients are able to choose the underlying risk model.

With one click, clients can now:

  • view a timely analysis of VAR (Value at Risk)
  • conduct expansive stress and scenario based testing
  • compare historical (ex post) and predictive (ex ante) risk exposures alongside performance attribution and compliance analysis

Northern Trust has provided risk and performance services for over thirty years. Recently, the IRAS group announced an enhancement to its existing suite of investment risk and performance products with the launch of environmental emission analytics, enabling institutional investors and high net worth individuals across the globe to effectively measure the carbon footprint of their investments.
