New York, Copenhagen – February 7, 2024, Provider of investment management solutions, SimCorp, announces a new strategic partnership with Venn by Two Sigma (Venn), a sophisticated investment analytics solution for professional investors. Combining Axioma equity factor models (now part of SimCorp) with Venn’s factor analytics, the partnership aims to tackle the challenge of managing multi-asset portfolios, without adding to operational complexity, as the traditional 60/40 portfolio gives way to a growing tilt towards private markets assets.
Headquartered in New York, Venn is forged from the quantitative expertise of financial sciences leader Two Sigma. Venn’s clients include asset owners, wealth managers, advisors, and consultants of all sizes who rely on Venn for its global multi-asset analytics, intuitive interface, and premium client service. Venn’s multi-factor risk analysis platform enhances a variety of traditional workflows including portfolio analysis, manager due diligence, scenario analysis, proposal generation, performance reporting, and more.
Under the new partnership, Venn’s clients will benefit from equity risk factors derived from the latest version of the Axioma US Equity Factor Risk Models, alongside the Worldwide Equity Factor Risk Models, within Venn’s robust 18-Factor Lens. The combination of Venn’s flexible tools and quantitative approach, along with comprehensive analysis from Axioma solutions, is designed to enable investors to achieve unparalleled insights and quickly understand the impact of risk and expected returns in a constantly evolving environment.
Chris Sturhahn, Chief Product Officer for Axioma solutions at SimCorp comments: “Venn’s passion for fusing together data-driven risk analysis and innovation make it a natural fit for SimCorp and our Axioma offering. We are pleased to enter this partnership, not least because Venn’s goal to refine multi-asset portfolio management, aligns perfectly with the total portfolio vision we are building–natively integrating public and private markets into one platform. We look forward to enriching the client experience, with our market-leading factor risk models and to serving institutional investors and wealth managers in North America and beyond.”
Marco Della Torre, CEO of Venn by Two Sigma adds: “This partnership represents an exciting milestone in our journey as we strive to identify cutting-edge innovations in the market that can further empower Venn clients with exceptional multi-asset portfolio technology, while maintaining operational simplicity. SimCorp’s global perspective and advanced Axioma modeling technology align exceptionally well with Venn’s vision of empowering institutional investors and advisors with financial science technology.”
