SunGard APT has been given an excellent report by Ampega Gerling GmbH, the asset management division of the Talanx Group, as they announce a long-term commitment to developing further risk reporting and risk management systems to help ensure regulatory compliance and investment performance.
United Kingdom (PRUnderground) November 7th, 2011
The Talanx group is based in Hanover and operates across 150 different countries. Its asset management division sits in the corporate operations arm of the business, and has worked successfully with SunGard to customise SunGard’s APT software to comply with the new regulatory requirements from Germany’s finance industry regulator Bundesanstalt für Finanzdienstleistleistungsaufsicht (‘BaFin’). In common with similar investment businesses, Ampega Gerling is required to investigate and report Value at Risk anomalies to the regulator on a quarterly basis, although the business monitors these on a daily basis.
AmpegaGerling is an investment company serving private clients and institutional investors. The investment manager will also be using APT to measure volatility in equities, commodities, swaptions and Euro-bund futures.
The partnership between the two businesses is a perfect illustration of the scalability and flexibility of the SunGard APT financial management software which, as well as providing risk reporting services, can be adapted to provide portfolio construction and optimisation analysis and related professional services to hedge fund managers, other private investors, and institutional investors such as pension funds.
Whatever the application, SunGard APT provides a data-rich solution for rapid implementation and ease of integration to the customer front, middle or back office systems.
