Intelligent cloud system for risk control and portfolio optimisation for sustainable pension funds

The ageing population and increased life expectancy puts a tremendous strain on the pension system. On the one hand the number of pension funds has declined in several European countries, whereas volatility on the other hand has increased due to political and economic uncertainties. Due to this growing societal and economic pressure on Europe’s pension funds, advanced risk management is required in order to secure their sustainability and the environment of low or even negative interest rates for portfolio optimisation.

Through the project sus@pension AAAccell Ltd. will develop together with RISE a cloud platform with an intelligent FinTech engine for pension fund managers in order to reduce risks and optimise their investments aiming to secure the sustainability of pension funds.

The project will start as of 1 May 2018 and will last for three years. It will be 50% supported by Eurostars.
