Uusi verkkoportaali parantaa sijoitusten läpinäkyvyyttä
Man Investments on lanseerannut verkkoportaali Claruksen, jonka tavoitteena on parantaa sijoitusten läpinäkyvyyttä. Viime vuosien talouskriisin seurauksena markkinoilla on selkeästi kysyntää työkalulle, joka lisää osasalkkujen riskien ja likviditeetin näkyvyyttä.
Clarus tarjoaa mahdollisuuden jakaa yksityiskohtaisempaa tietoa ja paremmin analysoituja näkemyksiä sijoituksista pelkän historianäkökulman ja suoriteperusteisen tarkastelun lisäksi. Sijoittaja voi visualisoida salkkunsa tiedot ja saada informaatiota muun muassa sijoitusten markkinariskeistä, osituksista, valuuttaherkkyydestä ja kiinnostavuudesta.
“Sijoittajien vaatimukset ovat muuttuneet viime vuosina. Clarus on vastaus heidän toivomalleen tehokkaammalle läpinäkyvyydelle,” sanoo sijoitusjohtaja Eric Burl Manilta.

Man launches managed accounts system, Clarus, to give investors greater portfolio transparency
Man, the alternative investment manager, has launched Clarus, an online portal for investors in managed accounts to obtain greater transparency in their underlying investments.
The financial crisis and subsequent shocks in markets have emphasised the need for visibility of the risks and liquidity in portfolios.
Man has developed Clarus to share investment insights with clients and provide more data and analysis than historical performance-based reporting. It allows clients to visualise their exposure to underlying risk factors in both their managed accounts and aggregated as part of their wider portfolio.
Eric Burl, Man’s Head of Managed Accounts, said, “Over recent years, investors’ demands have shifted dramatically and people now want to see how assets are controlled, that there is good liquidity, and that their cash will be returned when they want it. Clarus provides the heightened transparency our investors seek.”
Key managed account and portfolio information that can be visualised by clients using Clarus includes performance and performance decomposition, style attribution and performance, and value-at-risk, broken down into foreign exchange sensitivities, commodity sensitivities, equity sensitivities and interest rate sensitivities.
Man currently manages $8.0 billion of assets within managed accounts. In March 2011, Man announced a managed account mandate for an initial EUR 1.2 billion from Bayerische Versorgungskammer (BVK), Germany’s largest public pension fund with more than EUR 50 billion in assets. In 2010 it announced a managed account mandate for up to $1 billion by the Universities Superannuation Scheme Limited (USS), the UK’s second largest private sector pension fund.

About Man Managed Accounts
Man launched managed accounts in 1998 and currently manages $8.0 billion of assets in managed accounts within its Multi-Manager business. A managed account is an investment vehicle that provides access to an investment manager’s strategy, but separate from a commingled fund. The benefits of investing in a managed account are greater transparency into transactions, positions, and valuations, improved liquidity terms, and a legal structure separate from the investment manager to mitigate the risk of fraud.
