uniquely positioned to offer intuitive and relevant risk management
services to benefit all our clients.”

In the previous twelve months, IA’s client base has more than
doubled. Client breakdown includes: hedge funds, fund of hedge
funds, money market funds, financial institutions, pension funds
and endowments.  Over 50% of IA’s USD 250 billion of assets
under analysis come from single hedge fund managers and fund of
hedge funds which can be attributed to IA’s award winning Risk
Transparency platform, highly regarded client services, and
customers’ need for intuitive, robust and usable risk tools.

Increasingly, the trend among fund managers and investors has
been to partner with third-party risk management specialists who
provide an independent assessment of a fund’s risk profile to
enable a portfolio manager to safeguard their investments.

Mellon to provide enterprise-wide risk management and reporting and
has written numerous whitepapers on risk management.  Investor
