StatPro causing a revolution in the cloud

StatPro explained: It’s about easier portfolio analytics
StatPro has been in the business of portfolio analytics since 1994, but it still feels like a young company with plenty of energy and a real commitment to innovation. We’re proud to say we have over 300 clients across 28 countries.
Most recently we’ve been leading the revolt against expensive and complicated portfolio analytics. The global investment community needed a better way to produce and share information. By harnessing technology alongside StatPro’s knowledge and expertise we’ve created a game-changing service with StatPro Revolution.
The pleasure of using cloud technology is clear. It’s about getting more, faster, for less. Cloud:
• Ensures all clients receive the latest feature updates
• Allows you to access your portfolio analysis anytime, anywhere by logging on
• Improves data security - the data is centralized meaning it doesn’t need to be transported during support issues (StatPro is audited and certified to both ISO and SSAE 16 security standards. Connections to StatPro Revolution are always encrypted to the highest standard, from any user or from any data source.)
The revolution explained
StatPro Revolution is a cloud-based portfolio analytics service. It enables our clients to transform the way they communicate with their clients. With access to performance analytics, risk, contribution, allocation and attribution, Asian clients today are reducing their operating costs by accessing analytics online. This is allowing them to focus on enhancing performance and reducing risk. With simple to understand dashboards and reporting, clients can easily see their performance and share this online with clients and prospects to increase AUM and retain existing assets.
The coverage of data is a really important issue as the software is nothing without the assets our clients need. Data management is difficult and expensive but StatPro Revolution is designed to be easy to use, so StatPro provides all the market data required. Clients provide the holdings in their portfolio and StatPro Revolution provides the rest. We cover global equities, bonds, and mutual funds, most families of benchmarks, FX rates, sector classifications, and a host of derivatives including options and OTCs, equity options, index options, FX options, IRSs and CDSs with more derivative types coming soon. And with complex strategies such as using interest rate swaps to lock in certain interest rates or hedging out credit risk with a CDS, emerging as new investing norms, we’ve recently integrated 313 new bond pricing functions into StatPro Revolution. The new pricing functions allow StatPro to calculate the greeks based on a model price and calibrate them to the client price. This pricing is the starting point for consistent and accurate analytics.
It’s a very exciting time for portfolio analysis in Asia.
