MSCI launches new version of Barra Portfolio Manager

RELATED TOPICS​

MSCI has launched a new version of Barra Portfolio Manager, which features advanced workflow tools designed to help portfolio managers improve their investment processes and goals.

 
One of the critical advancements in this version is historical strategy simulation. Analytics and portfolio managers can now use Barra Portfolio Manager to test various investment strategies simultaneously and monitor statistics even while optimisations are being actively processed. This provides users with immediate insight into a strategy’s risk and return profile, allowing for real-time adjustments.
 
"These enhancements are the latest in our continued efforts to provide a comprehensive platform that allows clients to design, develop and implement investment strategies," says Peter Zangari, managing director and head of equity portfolio management analytics at MSCI. "Using Barra Portfolio Manager, clients can now customise their portfolios to adapt to a change in their investment outlook or a shift in market trends."
 
Bill Yost, managing partner and director of portfolio management and trading at Quotient Investors, says: "Barra Portfolio Manager risk models and optimisation tools give us the ability to build highly customised portfolios that help us innovate, make more informed investment decisions and compete successfully in our industry. It helps us better understand both strengths and weaknesses in our investment process and communicate with clients more effectively. Understanding why we outperform or underperform is critical information for our clients and for us."
