  • In-depth risk analysis and risk management

    Neon’s Risk Measurement and Risk Attribution insights give managers the data they need to make informed, timely and effective decisions. By quickly pinpointing the areas of risk within each portfolio, managers gain complete control of the risk management process, are able to prioritise remedial actions and to schedule investor communications accordingly.


    Institutional-grade risk engine

    Neon incorporates Raise Partner (Raise) quantitative risk analytics. Raise has been used for over 15 years by large and demanding financial institutions, including pension funds, major UK hedge funds and global investment banks.

    One of France’s best-known private banks uses Raise to provide risk analytics and optimisation for its UHNW clients across the bank’s European and Asian network. Germany’s leading online broker depends on Raise to generate risk analytics and to enable one million of its self-directed clients to manage the risks in their investment portfolios.
