STRICT SEPARATION OF TASKS
Eiffel Investment Group implements a strict separation of investment and non-investment tasks: the Investment team is responsible for trading and portfolio management; the Risk & Operations team is responsible for trade and portfolio reconciliation, profit and loss calculation and risk reporting; independent fund administrators are responsible for valuation and fund accounting.
INDEPENDENT RISK CONTROL
While risk management is a focus of the entire firm, risk control is performed independently by the Risk & Operations team. For liquid funds, risks are generally monitored on a daily basis, using a range of risk measures and stress tests. The head of Risk & Operations is empowered to independently enforce risk limits.
Eiffel Investment Group has developed relationships with a selected group of trading counterparties, including top-tier financial institutions and niche players specializing on a particular market or geography, thereby enabling its Investment team to have a deep and broad access to the European credit and equity markets, both in primary and in secondary.
For fund administration, Eiffel Investment Group works with reputable service providers, notably Caceis.
Eiffel Investment Group has invested in a customized front-to-back portfolio and risk management system developed by financial IT vendor Orchestrade, which spent two years customizing the system to fit Eiffel Investment Group's specific product and reporting requirements.
