Asset Manager BlueCrest Capital Opts for Axioma's Risk Platform

The $32 billion alternative asset manager said Axioma's system will aid its systematic equity strategies.

BlueCrest Capital Management, an alternative asset manager with more than $32 billion under management, announced it will use analytics provider Axioma's risk models for its systematic equity strategies.

The firm said Axioma's platform will also aid its portfolio construction process and will be a base from which it can design its own customized risk models.

"We recently conducted a thorough review of risk model providers with a specific focus on the systematic equity space," BlueCrest product manager Frank Fehle said. "While a number of these firms proved themselves to be sophisticated and professional, we were particularly impressed with Axioma as they were able to provide a high degree of flexibility and customizability in their product suite." .
