Portfolio & Risk Analysis

Portfolio Construction & Optimization

Create asset allocations and analyze efficient portfolios along frontiers, construct and optimize custom portfolios, and monitor portfolio performance over time.

  • Choose from multiple models, including mean-variance optimization, Black-Litterman, downside risk optimization, mean-benchmark tracking optimization.
  • Achieve greater insights leveraging Calibrated Frontiers, MPI’s proprietary resampling approach.
  • Identify results that are generated by asset allocation and portfolio optimizations leveraging MPI’s patented Frontier Map®1 functionality.
  • Optimize based on expected return, alpha, fund score or other provided factors.

Risk Analysis

Perform historical regime analysis, stress testing, and scenario analysis, or “what-if” shocks. Extend historical analysis for shorter-lived products and portfolios through the use of proxies.

  • Analyze risk and performance in different regimes or market shocks.
  • Select from up to 30 MPI-created regime models or create your own.
  • Use proxies to perform more comprehensive analysis on shorter-lived products and portfolios.

Risk Attribution

Accurately identify risk factors across individual managers or products, monitor changes in those exposures over time, and flag issues requiring further scrutiny more quickly than if relying solely on holdings-based systems.

  • Calculate style, selection and investment risk relative to a specified benchmark.
  • Generate a full range of MPT statistics including alpha, beta, Sharpe ratio, and t-stat.
