Enterprise Buy-Side Risk: The Stakes Have Changed


Risk management and risk management professionals play an increasingly important role in the money management business. These teams’ technology tools need to support a combination of both ex post and ex ante risk analyses, and they are vital to firms’ operations. In the wider context of buy-side technology architecture, front-to-back platform deployments—fueled by trends in vendor consolidation and by integrated systems’ expanding capabilities—have challenged the traditional best-of-breed model for smaller functional components such as risk.

Attend the webinar with Aite Group senior analyst Audrey Blater and manager of the research design & data team Sarah Fitzsimmons, who will provide a snapshot of the state of buy-side risk management. They will also discuss a range of trends and solutions desired by the buy-side in response to the ever-changing investment and regulatory landscape.

Key discussion points will include:

  • A discussion of the latest challenges faced by risk managers and how they are coping with new demands
  • An examination of the current technology stacks at buy-side firms and predictions of what this will look like in the future
  • An exploration of how future development from third-party risk vendors might influence the landscape and buy-side firms’ operating models
