Corporation (NASDAQ: VRTU), a global IT services company that
combines innovation, technology leadership and industry solutions to
transform the customer experience, today announced that its CSalt
solution will now integrate seamlessly with Investor
Analytics’ Risk Platform to streamline and simplify Alternative
Investment Fund Managers Directive (AIFMD) Annex IV reporting. Both
companies are committed to easing the burdens of alternative investment
advisors and those that support them, and this integration will give
alternative investment fund managers a single place to easily import,
map and transform data in order to fulfill the requirements of AIFMD and
“Since we first unveiled CSalt in early 2013, we’ve worked closely with
advisors and compliance consultants to ensure that the solution meets
their exact requirements,” said Erik DiGiacomo, senior vice president,
Financial Services Consulting at Virtusa. “We’re pleased to partner with
Investor Analytics for AIFMD Annex IV reporting. With the deadline for
the European reporting fast approaching, we are not only well poised to
help our clients in the alternative investment industry, but also
committed to staying ahead of industry changes, and this enhanced
version not only does that, but also adds user-friendly features that
make it even easier to use.”
The integration of Virtusa’s Compliance Suite for Hedge Funds and
Alternative Investments (CSalt) with the Investor Analytics Risk
Platform provides alternative investment managers with a one-stop
solution to satisfy AIFMD Annex IV prescriptive risk requirements. Annex
IV Reporting requires all alternative investment fund managers to report
specific risk analytics, including value at risk, stress testing,
liquidity stress testing, DV01 and credit spread sensitivity. In
addition to Form PF and CPO-PQR, the enhanced suite offers a solution
for AIFMD Annex IV Reporting and adds a new chief compliance officer
(CCO) task management tool including checklist, calendar, document
management, work-flow and e-mail notification features.
“Investor Analytics is excited to partner with Virtusa to offer best of
breed regulatory data management and reporting services complete with
all of the risk calculations required by AIFMD,” said Damian Handzy,
chief executive officer of Investor Analytics.

Data is aggregated and analyzed close to sensors so only intelligent results need to be transmitted to the cloud. Non-essential data is recycled to optimize storage.
