Risk Shell Data Integration Options

Institutions often rely on in-house data centers and proprietary databases, prompting us to introduce flexible solutions as part of our custom development program. Through various integration options, our clients can seamlessly connect local end-user databases with Risk Shell. Leveraging our data bridge solutions, clients can maintain their existing databases while harnessing the analytical power of Risk Shell.

For a more cost-effective approach, we offer the option to migrate existing in-house databases to Risk Shell's data centers and manage them there. Key features of our database integration programs include:

  • Tailored technical solutions for complex environments.
  • Swift implementation with a typical data bridge setup taking 2-3 weeks.
  • Support for a wide array of commercial databases.
  • Secure encrypted data transmission.
  • Optional dedicated server hosting for adherence to stringent security protocols (see Custom Deployment).
  • Utilization of Risk Shell analytics with proprietary data and asset classes not currently supported.
  • Team collaboration benefits through Risk Shell as an access hub for multi-user environments.

Custom database integration is an ideal choice for large institutions with established proprietary databases, emphasizing the preservation of existing data infrastructures. Alternatively, clients can opt for a simpler solution by working with user-defined data through the Risk Shell native Custom Data component (see Custom Data Sets).




  • Can I use Risk Shell with my own data only rather than subscribing to vendor data?

    Yes, custom data is fully supported. You don't need to subscribe to vendor databases and can work with Risk Shell using your own data only. There are two ways of integrating custom data into Risk Shell. First, clients can easily create and maintain their own databases in the Risk Shell framework. Second, we can create a data bridge between our data servers and clients'. Then clients continue maintaining their in-house databases which will by synchronized with Risk Shell.
  • How often is Risk Shell data updated?

    The local Risk Shell data is synchronized with vendors' feeds, i.e. updated upon updating vendor data. For most data feeds it is updated daily.
  • Why do you provide global equity data?

    First, equity data is required for Holdings-Based Analysis of funds with an equity exposure. Second, Risk Shell tools can be successfully used to build L/S equity portfolios. Third, you can add equity positions to multi-asset portfolios.
  • Can I skip risk analytics and subscribe to data only via ABC Quant?

    Yes, you can subscribe to any data packages distributed by us. We offer various data delivery options: FTP, SFTP, encrypted/unencrypted etc.
  • Do I need to subscribe to data packages separately?

    Risk Shell and data subscriptions are two different licenses, though some Risk Shell packages include selected data feeds. You can subscribe to most data feeds via ABC Quant or directly with supported data vendors. Risk Shell and data subscriptions are two different licenses, though some Risk Shell packages include selected data feeds. You can subscribe to most data feeds via ABC Quant or directly with supported data vendors. If you get a data license directly from a data vendor, your access to a relevant database will be enabled upon a license verification.
  • Can I run Holdings-Based Analysis for funds investing in bonds?

    We do not maintain fixed income data within the Risk Shell environment. However, you can get virtually any financial instruments, not necessarily bonds, from the integrated Bloomberg data feed or upload these instruments manually as custom assets.
  • Can I backup my own data in Risk Shell?

    Yes, there are two levels of custom backups: automatic system backups twice a day and user-initiated manual backups. We save system backups for a period of two years.
  • How is the problem of duplicates across different data feeds resolved?

    The problem of duplicates arises when you subscribe to several data feeds of the same asset class. Risk Shell offers special tools to eliminate duplicates across multiple data vendors based on user-defined rules.
