Portfolio & Risk Analytics
    find your portfolio’s true risk

    Find your portfolio’s true risk.

    Choose the model that matches your investment process with risk models from FactSet’s market-leading risk and quantitative research, leading model providers, or your own custom models. Leverage a non-normal fitted factor distribution framework to capture market risk, liquidity risk, reinvestment risk, and credit risk in the tails of the distribution and better reflect real-world events. Analyze multi-asset class portfolios with a Monte Carlo model for non-linear that reprices all assets in each simulation and offers group- and asset-level decomposition. When it comes to central distribution risk analysis, choose a linear-based model that focuses on benchmark relative analysis and risk hot spots, including a duration times spread approach to corporate bond risk.

    measure risk over time

    Measure risk over time.

    Monitor and analyze portfolio risk with forecast horizons from one day to two months, and easily decompose risk at a specific date or investigate changes over time. By leveraging the full generated distribution, you can select the risk measures most relevant to your business, including liquidity risk, Tracking Error, Value at Risk (VaR), or Expected Tail Loss. Compare results among portfolios, identify outliers, and find where risk is concentrated among funds.

    Examine weights, valuation measures, ratings, and other ratios for your portfolio and benchmarks, and evaluate relative performance using a wide selection of attribution models. Your strategy isn’t one-size-fits-all, and neither is your analysis.

    Flexible Reports
    find what’s driving performance

    Find what’s driving portfolio performance.

    Is portfolio performance driven by skill or luck? Understand how management decisions such as security selection, group allocation, and currency tilts affected portfolio performance results. Evaluate relative performance using attribution models designed for equity, fixed income, balanced, risk, top down, and macro-level. Know precisely which securities and groups contributed to or detracted from performance on an absolute or relative basis. Measure how the timing of buys and sells affected value with our decision analysis attribution model.
