TT International, a London-based investment manager, has deployed SunGard's APT, a risk management, portfolio construction and optimization solution for buy-side institutions.

SunGard said APT’s multi-factor models, transparent methodology, intuitive interface and coverage will help TT International to enhance its risk management infrastructure.

The solution will also assist TT International’s delivery of stress testing and risk and performance attribution information across the business, so that risk can be analyzed, understood and communicated across markets, products and functions.

TT International provides customized reports for a range of needs, from reports for its portfolio managers and UCITS reporting, to daily reports to clients and company stakeholders.

TT International head of risk James Everett said SunGard APT’s workflow allows the company to integrate back-office risk reporting with middle- and front-office portfolio and risk management functions, helping to capture a 360 degree view of risk.

"This gives us the opportunity to enhance our management and hedging of risk. In addition, APT’s broad model coverage provides superior granularity for the markets we invest in," Everett said.

TT International manages both long/short and long only funds, with $18bn assets under management.
