Citigroup has launched CitiDirect Performance and Risk Measurement Service, a performance and risk reporting middle-office application using visualization technology.
With the service’s heat-mapping capabilities, asset managers can for the first time aggregate multiple, manually-generated reports into a single information view to enhance efficiency and improve decision-making.
"CitiDirect PRISM demonstrates our ongoing commitment to market innovation and leading-edge technology for the benefit of our clients," says Neeraj Sahai (pictured), global head, securities and fund services, Citi. "The heat-mapping technology that powers this new middle-office tool enables a fund’s executives and asset owners to view their portfolio performance and risk exposure in an intuitive manner that aids in their investment and risk management processes."
Dashboard views for chief investment officers, portfolio managers, risk managers and product distribution teams provide information about complex data relationships across performance, attribution, investment operations and sales across multiple products and asset classes.
The ability to interact with large amounts of data in an intuitive fashion aims to allow for quicker analysis and decisions.
