A factor-based fund screening, search and comparison tool for professional investors has been launched today.
Style Analytics, a provider of factor-based portfolio and market analytics tools for investment professionals, launches what it has dubbed a “first-of-its-kind tool” in investment management for instant comparison of funds on a wide variety of metrics.
Style Analytics’ products and services are designed to help institutional investors and investment managers determine which factor exposures impact portfolio risk and performance, including ESG.
Using the Similyzer tool and other products with the Style Analytics range industry professionals can analyze markets, peers and portfolios and also highlight issues such as ‘green-washing’. This where the tool can differentiate which ESG funds are valid in their green claims, amid the recent rush to this style of investment – particularly during the current covid-19 crisis.
