BoNY Institutional Clients Offered Revamped Risk and Performance Analytics

July 20, 2006 ( - The Bank of New York (BoNY) is offering new fixed income and equity attribution analysis services to its institutional clients, which will allow them to identify, monitor and allocate risk across a variety of factors, including by region, country, industry, investment style, sector and currency.

According to a news release, the improved offering will give investment managers access to transparent methods to help them look at their portfolios’ total relative risk and give them the ability to instantly access reporting options through the bank’s Internet-based platform, INFORM.

“Our clients have told us they want flexibility and choice with their attribution programs, as well as a fully transparent fixed income option to complement the equity offering,” said Debra Baker, managing director and head of Global Risk Services, in the news release.

The bank allied with Wilshire Associates, an investment technology, investment consulting and investment management firm, and is planning to add new risk budgeting capabilities later this year, according to the announcement.
