With offices in Washington DC and Stamford CT, RiskSpan provides data and analytics technology to the global fixed income markets. Its cloud-based system Edge integrates data, analytics and risk and pricing models to deliver predictive and operational insight to customers who hold and trade complex structured securities in commercial banking, capital markets and structured finance.
RiskSpan has been a pioneer in the integration of ‘big data’ and machine learning in the cloud for financial services. This increases the amount and speed of portfolio analysis, and allows clients to make far more precise and accurate risk predictions.
As a leading SaaS provider of risk management, data and analytics, RiskSpan has been awarded Buy-Side Market Risk Management Product of the Year for its Edge Platform at Risk.net’s 2021 Risk Markets Technology Awards. The honor marks Edge’s second major industry award in 2021, having also been named the winner of Chartis Research’s Risk-as-a-Service category.
Licensed by some of the largest asset managers and insurance companies in the U.S., a significant component of the Edge Platform’s value is derived from its ability to serve as a one-stop shop for research, pre-trade analytics, pricing and risk quantification, and reporting. Edge’s cloud-native intrastructure allows RiskSpan clients to scale as needs change and is supported by RiskSpan’s unparalleled team of domain experts — seasoned practitioners who know the needs and pain points of the industry firsthand.
RiskSpan also provides data management and analytics consulting services. Its team of industry experts and quantitative analysts help clients obtain insight from massive and ever-increasing amounts of financial data, and understand how to deploy technology to lower their risk.
Cooper and Company first invested in RiskSpan in 2005 and, in partnership with the company’s founders, helped build its go-to-market strategy and product offerings. It has also led RiskSpan’s financing strategy, including bolt-on acquisitions to expand the company’s capabilities and scope of services.
