Retail Advice & Wealth Management

Award-winning solutions to support clients across the investment life cycle

Modelling solutions for the retail market

We help institutional, retail investors and advisors understand how uncertainty in financial markets can impact their financial plans and enable improved decision-making. Our focus is clear; we believe effective risk management is core to our client’s businesses, and we build the best stochastic models and calibrations of the financial markets, and deliver these to clients in an easy-to-use, cost effective way.

In the retail sector, our clients benefit from award-winning modelling quality and reliability, proven by the world’s largest risk management institutions. We know where our core strengths, capabilities and expertise lie. Clients respect our impartiality, and have come to know that we will offer them the solution that is right for their particular problem. If we can’t do this, we don’t take the job.

This core risk modelling capability has been packaged into a wide range of retail services, which are now used by a wide range of leading retail market clients across the advisory, banking and insurance sectors, including HSBC, Lloyds, Tenet, Vanguard, Standard Life, and AVIVA.

We also work with a range of system partners to integrate our modelling technology into a wide range of point of sale, transaction and advice platforms, including FNZ, Focus Solutions, Capita Financial Software, and Intelliflo.
