“Fragmented and outdated information is one of the biggest barriers to the effective operation of a pension scheme. Additionally, understanding the impact of risk drivers on investment and funding strategies is key for stakeholders to stay on top of the funding position and manage against future downside risk,” says Simon Robinson, Director of Product Management at Moody’s Analytics.
"Through the use of our PFaroe DB platform, our clients have understood how to move to a much better position over the last few years and are therefore much less exposed to market movements than they would have been 5 to 10 years ago," said Simon Robinson, Director of Product Management at Moody’s Analytics.
The PFaroe DB platform from Moody’s Analytics Buy-Side Solutions brings together disparate, often fragmented data to give stakeholders a clear and consistent view, and with it a deeper understanding of their plan’s asset and liability risks. It delivers a range of information from across the balance sheet in one place and, as a result, all of a plan’s stakeholders have the same view and can conduct the same levels of analysis, leading to more collaborative and informed decision-making.
