A client being in charge of UCITS and AIFs has hired Finalyse for external independent valuation service. Some strategies include illiquid products for which a fair value needs to be calculated for the ManCo to be compliant with European regulation (UCITS and AIFMD). The Board of Directors wants to be able to justify to any regulator or client all prices used for the calculation of the related Net Asset Values.
We have helped the conducting officer in charge of Risk Management to screen the portfolios and identify the products that should be challenged. As the strategies are diversified, the scope of product types is wide: OTC derivatives, ABS and Private Equities. For each type of products Finalyse had to apply different methodologies, tools and models.
Finalyse took care of the whole process: from the analysis of the products to systematic reconciliation of prices and explanations in case of important differences.
As a special service and according to the European Securitization regulation, Finalyse provides the client with a due diligence service for the ABS positions. Finalyse generates on an ongoing basis, pre-trade due diligence and risk dashboard.
