Fabric Launches Risk Management Platform for Investors Working With Advisors

·2-min read

Firm goes live with MSCI-powered tool

DENVER, October 19, 2021--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Fabric, a startup founded by veteran risk manager Richard Bookstaber, announced the official launch of its next-generation risk management product, Fabric for Advisors: Insight. Powered by MSCI’s factor model, the application brings the factor-based approach used by the world’s largest banks, asset managers and hedge funds to individual investors.

"Through our platform, we’re providing the wealth management industry with institution-level risk management," said Bookstaber. "With access to a first-of-its-kind factor-based model, advisors everywhere will have the tools to empower individual investors."

The standard approach for off-the-shelf risk management platforms is to look at history as a guide to forward-looking risk, Bookstaber explained. Rather than depending on a method that looks backward, which has produced unreliable results in recent years, he said Fabric’s technology is factor-based and forward-looking. The platform sources analytics from MSCI, the world leader in factor modeling.

The platform also considers exposure to ESG, most notably climate change.

In the run-up to this month’s launch, more than 500 advisors signed up for a demo.

"Thanks to years of discussions with advisors about their concerns with navigating risk, we have created a model that simplifies complicated risk concepts into approachable investment insights," said Fabric Co-Founder and CEO Govinda Quish.

Fabric’s application is geared toward advisors who want to differentiate themselves and grow their practice by engaging in a discussion of risk with both existing clients and prospects.
