The Midlands-based actuarial consultancy will use RiskFirst’s risk analytics platform to help clients measure and manage investment risk in real-time – bringing cutting-edge technology to the smaller pension scheme

Quattro Pensions, an independent firm of consulting actuaries based in the Midlands, has signed up to RiskFirst’s risk analytics platform PFaroe. The company will offer its small-to-medium-sized pension scheme clients access to market leading analytics and investment services. PFaroe allows granular risk analysis on investment strategy, including Value-at-Risk (VaR) interrogation, “What if?” analysis and stress-testing against historic market events.

“The pensions environment is changing and trustees want faster access to funding levels, with an increasing focus on the risk within investment strategy, partly driven by requirements from The Pensions Regulator,” says Andrew Allsopp, Managing Director of Quattro Pensions. “We needed to be able to offer a credible and dynamic solution to smaller pension schemes and in our opinion PFaroe is more detailed, flexible and usable than any other system that we have seen. We can now extend our investment service to use the same cutting-edge technology that is being used by the largest pension schemes – something that we see helping us expand our client base in the future.”

Matthew Seymour, Managing Director, RiskFirst, comments:

“Quattro Pensions has a strong reputation for providing pension schemes with a bespoke and personal service and we are delighted to be able to play a part in the next stage of their business development.”
