Robeco, a firm that offers investment products and services to institutional and private investors, has chosen Sophis Risque to support the front-, middle- and back-office processes for its trading, structuring and co-investment activities. Robeco is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Rabobank Group.
Sophis Risque will provide Robeco with the ability to monitor its positions and risk profiles across a wide range of complex products and different portfolios. It will decrease its capital requirement, decrease time to market for new products and improve the efficiency of front-to-back processes.
Frank Kusse, member of the management board at Robeco, said: “With instruments becoming more complex and market volatility increasing it is vital to have the appropriate risk management and operational controls in place. We chose Sophis Risque because it offered proven technology and because the team there was able to demonstrate insight into the challenges that our industry faces.”
