Moody’s Analytics, a leading provider of financial intelligence, announced today that its technology has been selected by Santander UK, one of the largest providers of mortgages and savings in the United Kingdom.

It will provide economic modeling required to support fund risk analysis, and Value-at-Risk measures across the Santander UK retail investment proposition, encompassing a range of multi-asset funds distributed across multiple channels.

“Ensuring that investment products are, and remain, aligned to a customer’s capacity for loss is a crucial aspect of product governance,” said Phil Mowbray, Senior Director of Wealth and Pensions Solutions at Moody’s Analytics. “The Portfolio Risk Analytics solution supports our retail financial clients with their risk modeling needs, and produces quantitative analysis that enhances their own governance process. We are delighted to continue to provide modeling support to Santander UK.”
