Performance Analytics Services

Customized performance analytics solution to mitigate risk while freeing up valuable time

The construction of composites and the associated oversight comes with various ongoing risks that firms struggle to appropriately mitigate due to lack of data and limited internal resources. These risks are difficult to reduce without access to accurate information and appropriate technology. Even with access, the need to understand the data can play an even more important role.

Our Performance Analytics Services (PAS) helps firms create and maintain a robust composite maintenance process to allow for greater transparency and accuracy.

Why choose PAS?

Composite Review 720x570.png

Composite Review

Using our Composite Review report, firms will have the ability to visualize how outliers are impacting overall composite performance. Access to this data allows firms to assess and prioritize where time is best spent and which composites need a more detailed review. 

Composite Scorecard 720x570.png

Composite Scorecard

Our proprietary Composite Scorecard process gives firms the opportunity to establish parameters and thresholds that produce a pass/fail grade for a particular composite. Using various metrics, we work with firms to customize a testing process that ultimately helps determine which composites are reasonable to pass on and which composites have issues that may need addressed before marketing the performance.

Benchmark/Risk Review

Our Strategy Adherence and Benchmark Appropriateness report allows firms to establish procedures to monitor portfolio managers and financial advisors and ensure the management of the portfolio is adhering to the stated strategy. By tracking the performance over time in relation to a stated index, we can visually demonstrate the decision makers may have drifted from their stated mandate.

Related Performance 720x570.png

Related Performance Review

For firms looking to ensure that, in accordance with the SEC's new Marketing Rule, any ‘related performance’ is not materially higher than that of a composite for the same strategy, we can help construct composites and complete annual testing to help you adhere to this new requirement. We can also provide consulting around how the industry is assessing materiality and help develop the review process needed to monitor this performance on an ongoing basis.
