NEW YORK, April 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- SimCorp, a leading provider of investment management solutions and services for the global financial services industry today announced it will moderate and participate in a panel discussion titled "Determining the Liquidity and Risk Level that's Just Right for Your Portfolio" at the CAIP (Canadian Alternative Investments in Pensions) East Forum 2016 in Niagara-On-The-Lake, Canada on April 19th, 2016. CAIP is the leading event for senior pension investment executives.


SimCorp's Else Braathen will be joined by other industry experts including Claude Bergeron, EVP & Chief Risk Officer at Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec and Graeme Hay, Director, Strategy & Implementation, (TRAF) Teachers Retirement Allowances Fund. Braathen is the risk management product manager at SimCorp, which provides front-to-back software solutions to financial institutions. Prior to SimCorp, Else was a risk manager at ABN AMRO and a derivatives analyst at Danske Capital.

The panel will explore how to effectively determine the level of liquidity required within a portfolio. In the discussion, the panelists will review the key factors used to assess how varying models and predictions on liabilities determine the liquidity levels that are necessary for a portfolio while optimizing the chances to generate optimal returns.

"The financial crisis reminded many of the need for liquidity control and it is a hot topic with increased focus from regulators and financial institutions. It is a type of risk that is difficult to define, measure and regulate," said Braathen. "I look forward to exploring the topic further with fellow experts and discussing techniques and solutions for managing both market liquidity risk – the risk of being unable to unwind your positions – and funding liquidity risk, where cash flow management is the key."
