Trendrating Smart Momentum Reports Now Available on FactSet

September 23, 2015

Trendrating, a provider of innovative momentum factor analytics for global investment managers, announced the availability of weekly and monthly “Smart Momentum” reports on countries, markets, sectors and themes.

"We are pleased to share a subset of our momentum ratings to subscribers of FactSet Research Connect as periodic reports,” commented Rocco Pellegrinelli, Founder and CEO of Trendrating. “Most commercially available momentum models are late at spotting reversals, as they rely on performance analysis of the last 6 to 12 months. This means being late when it’s time to shift, resulting in losses and volatility. Trendrating Smart Momentum reacts faster and identifies trends at an earlier stage while also weathering short-term volatility. This innovation proved itself out over the past few months as our Smart Momentum model began issuing a large number of downgrades across the globe back in May and June well in advance of the recent market correction.”

The Trendrating Smart Momentum model captures trends lasting from a few months to a few years while filtering out market noise to increase stability. Portfolio managers have full transparency into Trendrating’s results including the average historical accuracy across letter ratings (A, B, C, D). The self-adjusting model has proven effective at capturing meaningful trends with 73-81% accuracy. Smart Momentum ratings are also available via the Trendrating web-based platform or as a data feed.

FactSet Research Connect is an innovative database that offers research reports from a large and growing global roster of sell-side firms and independent research providers. FactSet Research Connect provides a direct channel between research publishers and their investment management clients.
