Strategic Asset Allocation

Strategic Asset Allocation explores the risk and reward tradeoffs associated with different asset allocation alternatives by using a stochastic testing process that measures the volatility of assets and liabilities under selected assumptions. FIRM® Portfolio Analyzer allows the Chief Financial Officer to adjust a portfolio strategy to increase investment performance and/or reduce portfolio risk within the bounds of a clearly defined risk appetite. Additionally, FIRM® Portfolio Analyzer provides unparalleled investment risk modeling capabilities, which can be performed on an aggregate asset class or individual security basis. Liability cash flows and reserves from other systems can be imported for full asset-liability modeling, so that FIRM becomes an integral component of your risk management systems framework.
