RiskFirst’s initial product, PFaroeDB, was launched in 2009 and leveraged modern technology to help the defined benefit (DB) pensions industry improve the management of asset and liability risk. PFaroeDB is now a market leader in the UK and US, used by many blue-chip institutions. More than 3,500 pension plans, with in excess $1.5 trillion of assets, are now modelled on PFaroeDB.

With drive and passion for continuous innovation, RiskFirst has launched exciting new solutions targeted at assisting the institutional investment market, particularly endowments and foundations, and the front-office of investment managers. Our products cover risk, investments and liabilities.

Core to our ethos is ensuring all of our products have an eye on the “ultimate goal”, the asset owner’s true objective. This harks back to our heritage of producing technology for asset owners and continues to prove of great value to consultants and asset managers, providing the unique ability to bring together all of those parties engaged in the process.

We also assist clients by bringing a sensible level of commercial discipline to the way they interact with technology, something that is all too often lacking in IT departments. We are committed to delivering comprehensive and innovative solutions that make and save our clients money.

Our products are continually enhanced and adapted to address changing needs in an evolving marketplace and to join up analytics so that clients can rely on scalable, leading-edge products that are flexible, intuitive and ever-evolving.

“As a journalist of 40 years’ standing, not many things impress me. PFaroe does.”
