As such, big-data analysis and research capabilities as well as a massive technology infrastructure helps to identify and isolate both traditional and alternative risk premiums which will simplify risk management systems and combine the factors into liquid alternatives portfolios to meet precise requirements in a marketplace that are limited by the availability of scarce alpha-generating investment opportunities.
