ABC Quant Products

We provide three primary product lines: the alternative investment risk management platform (Risk Shell), a portfolio management and shadow accounting platform (FoF Manager), and global investment data.

Risk Shell Platform

Launched in 2013, Risk Shell is the successor to the Quant Suite, initially designed for hedge fund of funds. Risk Shell, now a secure SaaS platform hosted on a dedicated server network, has evolved significantly since its inception, boasting over 40 major components. It spans the entire spectrum of the investment process, from asset selection to portfolio construction and reporting. Risk Shell integrates more than 40 databases and data feeds from major vendors, providing comprehensive coverage across various asset classes, including OEF/AFS, Hedge funds, Private Equity, ETF, CTA, and Global Equity.

FoF Manager: Accounting and Portfolio Management

The FoF Manager is technically a component of Risk Shell, but it can also function as a standalone shadow accounting and portfolio management system. Designed to handle fund of funds, alternative investments, private equities, and multi-asset portfolios, it includes specialized features tailored for family office portfolio management. The FoF Manager has emerged as an ideal tool for both single and multi-family offices.

Global Data

Risk Shell's extensive data coverage spans over 550,000 instruments, encompassing hedge funds, fund of funds (FoF), CTA, ETF, UCITS, money market funds, traditional mutual funds, and global equities. Users have the flexibility to create custom virtual databases or seamlessly link their in-house databases to Risk Shell.
