Risky Business: How The Warranty Group Manages Risk to Maximize Return on their Investment Portfolio

Sep 01, 2011

Download The Warranty Group sought out a single, automated and integrated platform that provided specific, comprehensive coverage of global assets across numerous portfolios at individual portfolio, composite and aggregate levels. It also needed to provide finance and accounting teams, treasurers, the chief investment officer, the CFO, and the Board of Directors with the ability to drill-down to individual securities. Such a system would allow The Warranty Group to segment different geographical regions into individual portfolio accounts, allowing for more logical and relevant comparisons.
