Why financial institutions choose Aladdin

While seeking the most efficient approaches to deploying capital, banks are now investing in classes outside their traditional base of assets. This includes diversification of assets into mortgage servicing right (MSR), whole loans, and structured products as well as consolidations or restructuring of businesses to increase operational efficiency and reduce costs. Concurrently, the regulatory regime is requiring banks to re-evaluate enterprise risk management processes and systems. Managing the data processes, focusing on capital efficiency and operational risk while aggressively managing costs can be challenging.

Our risk management solutions help insurers and financial institutions navigate an evolving investment landscape.

Why insurers choose Aladdin

In a continuing low yield environment, insurers have been forced to search for other sources of income. This has led them to diversify into leveraged loans, alternatives and equities, as well as consolidate or restructure businesses to increase operational efficiency and reduce costs. At the same time, regulatory changes are requiring insurers to re-evaluate enterprise risk management processes and systems. Whether assets are managed in-house or by external investment managers, staying on top of portfolio and operational risks while aggressively managing costs are a significant challenge.

Aladdin can help insurers effectively manage their investment portfolios. Our services include comprehensive multi-asset class risk analysis across externally and internally managed assets, a full investment management platform, and outsourced middle office and investment accounting services.

  • Have a seat at the table with insurance regulators, rating agencies and major industry groups.
  • Provide practical advice and solutions informed by actual experience managing and modeling insurance company portfolios.

Our risk management solutions help insurers and financial institutions navigate an evolving investment landscape.
