NEWS | For Immediate Release
LONDON, November 11, 2020 – Moody’s Analytics today announced that its software has been selected by LV=, a leading retirement and insurance specialist. LV= has chosen the Moody’s Analytics Portfolio Risk Analytics software to support its investment governance process, including the development of its investment pathways proposition.
Under new requirements from the UK’s Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), from February 1, 2021 pension providers must offer customers entering drawdown on a non-advised basis four investment pathways to meet their retirement needs. Portfolio Risk Analytics is a cloud-based financial modeling solution that allows asset managers, advisers, and product providers to create forward-looking outcome-based analyses for investment portfolios.
Powered by the award-winning Moody’s Analytics Scenario Generator, Portfolio Risk Analytics enables users to model investment outcomes reflecting savings and withdrawal scenarios under a broad range of economic conditions.
“The Portfolio Risk Analytics solution fully supports our investment governance and risk monitoring processes,” said David Stevens, Savings and Retirement Proposition Director at LV=. “We will use the solution to support the validation, risk monitoring, and ongoing governance requirements for investment pathways, an initiative from the FCA aimed at helping consumers make well-informed retirement income decisions without financial advice. It’s important that consumers consider how they plan to use their retirement fund. The use of this analytics tool has enabled us to create four pathway funds that we are confident can help consumers meet their retirement objectives.”
“We have extensive experience helping businesses implement risk management solutions supporting the design and governance of retail investment propositions,” said Matthew Seymour, Head of Buy-side Solutions, Enterprise Risk Solutions at Moody’s Analytics. “We look forward to working with LV= on their investment pathways offering in line with the requirements set out by the FCA.”
