Cognity

Overview

The world has changed unrecognizably. Dramatic volatility swings are the new market norm. Risk and portfolio managers must work in tandem to mitigate risk in advance of the next shock while at the same time avoid missed opportunities and ensure steady, consistent performance gains.

Through our patented fat-tailed framework, FinAnalytica’s Cognity risk management software makes sense of this new paradigm by isolating downside loss from upside return and accurately modeling the dynamic market phenomena seen in asset returns. Cognity deploys analytics that are predictive of changing market environments and serve as early warning indicators across all markets and market regimes.

Cognity predictive performance risk analytics offer unique solutions for asset managers, hedge funds and institutional multi-asset, multi-manager investors.
