Brainpower (Neuer Markt code BPW), provider of investment analysis and decision-support software tools for the investment community, is to supply Brainpower FINEST to recently launched risk specialist MangustaRisk.

MangustaRisk, which was launched in April 2000 and now has offices in London and Rome, provides outsourced Quantitative Risk Analysis for pension funds. They will be using FINEST integrated with information feeds from Bloomberg together with their own specialist risk models. The founders of MangustaRisk have strong representation from both investment banking and academic backgrounds - a combination of skills critical to delivering this specialist service.

Giancarlo Canavesio, co-founder of MangustaRisk commented, "We strongly believe that Quantitative Risk Analysis is not an exact science because the inputs, their weights, the algorithms you can use and the combinations of those are endless, therefore the skills of the risk manager are critical. By working with Brainpower, MangustaRisk can combine the technology with the in-depth analytical skills to supply our clients with a superior service which is cost effective and accountable."

Mark Wells, Chief Operating Officer for Brainpower commented, "MangustaRisk is a great demonstration of just how versatile Brainpower FINEST is. Although we supply the same product to each client, it is how they use the product to support their own expertise that makes it ideal for delivering true competitive advantage."
