€4 billion French asset manager deploys Axioma’s risk management

Sycamore Asset Management will use the tool to analyse risks through assessments on investments.

Sycamore Asset Management has entered into an agreement with Axioma to deploy its risk management services.

The €4.6 billion asset manager - based in France - will use Axioma Risk to analyse risks through assessments that become a part of its investment process.

Axioma explained highly competitive environments, new regulatory requirements and stress tests are forcing firms to construct multi-asset portfolios, “to drive performance though diversity.”

Nicolas Rossignol, managing director at Axioma, said with the expansion of the multi-asset market, asset managers need “state-of-the-art” analytics to understand complex portfolio dynamics.

Head of risk management at Sycamore Asset Management, Alain Robert Dautun, added the firm is facing increasingly challenging demands that require sophisticated risk management.

“Axioma Risk offers the flexibility both in terms of data and models to tackle these issues,” he said.
