Global institutional asset manager Westwood Holdings Group, Inc. has become the latest to adopt FinAnalytica’s flagship Cognity® risk management and portfolio construction platform. Initially implementing Cognity risk monitoring and UCITS reporting for their global convertible securities funds, Dallas-based Westwood is deploying Cognity across its multi-strategy fund groups in Boston, Dallas and Toronto.
Cognity delivers state-of-the-art risk analytics and reporting in a powerful multi-asset class framework that aggregates traditional holdings-based portfolios with returns-based alternative portfolios. Cognity provides asset managers with the most transparent and configurable view of enterprise market risk.
“Initially selecting Cognity for its accurate and flexible positions-level risk reporting, we quickly became aware of its unique ability to aggregate risk analytics and monitoring across all of our portfolios,” said Westwood Executive Vice President Kellie Stark. “Cognity aligns perfectly with Westwood’s commitment to rigorous, transparent and independent risk management oversight.”
FinAnalytica President Boryana Racheva-Yotova said, “Global asset managers with diversified multi-asset class products continue to grapple with the challenges of risk aggregation, transparency and interactivity. We’re excited to be working together with Westwood in deploying Cognity across their firm.”
