Hedge Week – June 2, 2020
Style Analytics, a provider of factor-based portfolio and market analytics tools for investment professionals, has launched a new tool in investment management for instant comparison of funds on a wide variety of metrics.
The new Similyzer tool uses fund holdings to measure how similar thousands of investment vehicles are to one another, helping investors make detailed comparisons on factor exposures, historic performance, risk measures and more.
Asset Managers can use Similyzer to identify uniquely differentiating aspects of their own funds, to assess all competitors’ strengths and weaknesses and to examine crowding in equity styles. Asset Owners and Consultants can use Similyzer to assess differences in comparable funds, to find alternative funds and to enhance their initial and ongoing due- diligence. Ten early-adopter clients are currently using Similyzer to compare select funds with over 28,000 other funds in the Morningstar and eVestment universes.
