Imagine Software has partnered with XTF Inc to provide clients with advanced data for exchange traded funds and the ability to conduct integrated analytics on portfolio positions and derivatives.
“Our partnership with XTF gives brokerage firms, investment banks, hedge funds and investment managers the seamless ability to view risk in a truly comprehensive way using XTF’s ETF data and Imagine’s risk analytics,” says Brendan Quinn, Director of Sales for Imagine Software.
XTF is the first global, independent provider of ETF Ratings, and the firm has designed the most comprehensive and meticulously maintained ETF and index database in the industry.
Melvin S Herman, CEO of XTF, says: “We are delighted to extend our world-class product and services to the clients of Imagine Software. Our analytics and tools are specifically designed to leverage the inherent advantages of ETFs. We provide easy- to-understand ways to evaluate and compare ETFs across asset classes, issuers, index providers, exchanges and currencies, regardless of where they trade or in what currency they are denominated.”
XTF provides separate liquidity and tracking error metrics appropriate for institutional investors, allowing for quick relative comparisons among ETFs within the same asset class. The back-tested results provide statistical accuracy, timeliness and low degradation of results over time. XTF’s extensive data dictionary includes every ETF listed in the US and underlying indices, covering implicit and explicit costs, liquidity, tracking error, performance, fund flows, correlations, legal structure and much more.
“The Imagine and XTF partnership delivers valuable data and insights for clients seeking to maximise returns, minimise risk, deliver transparency and fully maximise portfolio transactions,” says Brendan Quinn.
