Wilshire launches risk analysis platform Omnia

Global financial services firm Wilshire Associates Incorporated has launched a new flexible and scalable platform, Wilshire Omnia, that allows reporting for more than 3 million securities with the objective of minimize risk and maximize returns through its multi-asset class analytics.

Centrally-hosted and delivered through a standard web browser, which enables access even through web-enabled mobile devices, Omnia covers global equities and fixed income, commodities, derivatives, FX products, alternatives, and constituent-level drill-down for mutual funds and ETFs. Its global performance measurement capabilities are transaction-based, holdings-based and flow-based. Both risk and performance are measured in absolute terms and against a benchmark.

“Managing investment risk successfully in today’s markets requires the ability to monitor multiple factors with a robust set of analytics that can be accessed quickly, securely and in user-friendly formats that enhance workflow needs,” said Cecilia Loo, president of Wilshire Analytics. “With more than four decades of experience in the institutional marketplace, our next generation solution combines time-tested analytical engines with powerful underlying technology to deliver indispensable functionality.”

“Wilshire Omnia further enhances Wilshire Analytics’ offering of innovative solutions that are uniquely positioned to understand and meet the needs of money managers, money owners and investment services providers in the areas of risk, attribution, performance and portfolio construction,” Loo added.

The firm, founded in 1972 and headed by Founder, CEO and Chairman of the Board of Directors of Wilshire Associates Dennis A. Tito, has been recently promoting its in-house executives to managing directors, totaling seven promotions in late January: Michael R. Kennedy at the Wilshire Analytics business unit, Jonathan Miles at the Wilshire Consulting’s hedge fund advisory group, Leah Emkin at the Wilshire Funds Management’s global client services group, Saeed Gorbani at the Wilshire Funds Management’s information technology group, Erin Simpson at the Wilshire Funds Management’s operations and risk management group, Alexander Brummeler and Mark Perry at the Wilshire Private Market’s business and investment committees.

Six months ago, Andrew Junkin, ranked by CIO Magazine as one of the most influential consultants in the world four years in a row, was selected President of Wishire Consulting. Junkin was responsible for advising corporate and public retirement plans ranging in size from $1 billion to more than $300 billion.
