Asset management

The asset management team of Reply is concerned with the investment management of funds and customer portfolios, including administration, custody and outsourcing. Our clients include asset managers, operators and depositaries of collective investment schemes (e.g., UCITS), private client investment managers, and hedge fund managers.

The role of risk management in the asset management industry is of ever-growing importance. Large asset management firms are hiring risk management experts from trading and investment banking areas to help ensure that fund management operations understand and control market, credit, operational and reputational risks.


“The biggest challenge for the industry will be coping with (...) the regular risk monitoring and reporting process required under UCITS III. (...) Two possible sources for acquiring this type of expertise are the service providers for alternative funds and some of the traditional investment banks.”

Denis Kissane, Global Head of Derivative Pricing and Risk, HSBC Alternative Funds Services, Dublin


Drawing on our extensive risk management and measurement experience gained with leading investment banks, we have developed a tailored offering for the asset management industry. It is supported by proprietary methodology and tools, including software.


We have developed a propriety Integrated Risk and Performance Measurement (IRPM™) tool, which can be used to build a consensus view of the appropriate focus areas to improve an organisation’s performance measurement and management. These insights are then used as the basis of a business case to undertake improvement projects or actions.


Our service solutions cover the following offerings:

Organisation and Governance


Business Processes and People


Information Management


Measurement and Analytics
