Open Protocol Intro

Open Protocol is an industry accepted, consistent reporting template for managers’ risk and exposure information, created with a view to encourage transparency and to enable investors to aggregate exposure information at the portfolio level.

Open Protocol is a freely available template that standardizes how investment managers convey risk information.

It is simply a language, not a centralized data warehouse. As part of an independent working group of investors, managers and service providers, Albourne helped launch Open Protocol in August 2011 and is co-chair of its Working Group and in June 2017, Open Protocol was added to the Standards Board for Alternative Investments (SBAI) Toolbox.
