As firms face increasing regulation and investor demands for transparency, it is essential to have the tools in place to address these complex market needs. Understanding portfolio performance and risk provides the edge necessary to secure growth in an increasingly competitive market. With added pressure to consolidate the number of applications they are supporting, firms will now exceed their front and middle office needs with the analytics tools combined in a hosted environment.

The cloud based service combines sophisticated risk measurement, performance and contribution analysis and attribution analysis along with 21 different multi-language reports. Having this information in one place will not only reduce operating costs but enhances productivity and provides accurate, up-to-date performance analytics.

“We are in a time where markets continue to converge and firms face greater demand than ever for cost reduction but yet require more sophisticated tools to run their operations due to heightened investor and regulatory demand,” stated Justin Wheatley, Group Chief Executive, StatPro. “The cost efficient technology solution, that StatPro Revolution and Linedata provide, satisfies the operational needs for buy-side firms and enables a sustainable advantage for future success.”
