Legal & General Investment Management to enhance its client service proposition with new online analytics and monitoring platform for smaller pension schemes.
Legal & General Investment Management (LGIM) is set to enhance its client service proposition with the launch of an online analytics and monitoring platform later in the year. The analytics have been designed specifically for use by governance-constrained pension schemes in conjunction with their investment advisers.
Mark Wybrow, Head of UK Core Client Team, said “As a growing number of smaller pension schemes look to implement scheme-specific investment strategies, the demand for more sophisticated analytics and decision-making tools is growing”.
The design, adoption and execution of increasingly bespoke strategies requires more frequent reporting, improved risk analysis, the ability to assess a variety of investment options and the capability to monitor the effectiveness of chosen strategies on a regular basis.
To bridge this gap and best serve the needs of clients and their consultants, LGIM and RiskFirst have entered into an agreement to create and distribute a bespoke online analytics and monitoring platform designed specifically to meet the increasingly sophisticated needs of smaller pension schemes. The analytics platform will allow governance-constrained schemes, in conjunction with their investment advisers, to address many of the issues they face.
LGIM’s expertise and understanding of the needs of pension schemes combined with RiskFirst’s position as the market-leading provider of defined benefit (DB) risk analytics and reporting underpins the creation of a powerful solution tailored to the needs of DB schemes.
LGIM aims to begin a pilot of the analytics platform with pension schemes and their investment advisers in the first quarter of this year.
