Markov Processes International (MPI), a provider of investment research, analysis and reporting solutions for the global wealth and asset management industry, has released of Stylus Pro Version 11.3.
The new release introduces Stylus Workspace, a quantitative research framework for the analysis and monitoring of managed products, including mutual funds, exchange-traded funds, separately managed accounts, closed-end funds and hedge funds.
Workspace delivers more than 25 years of MPI’s proprietary fund analysis and factor modeling intelligence with a single click, automatically applying benchmarks, peer groups and factor models from MPI’s newly launched library when a fund is selected for analysis. Users will also be able to create and add their own custom models to the Workspace library.
In addition, Workspace enables Stylus Pro users to run an individual fund against the full MPI Factor Model Library to identify the best set of factors for style analysis of that fund. Workspace will also serve as the foundation for MPI’s future risk and stress-testing capabilities.
“Identifying the right mix of benchmarks, peer groups and factor models for fund analysis is critical to understanding and communicating fund dynamics over time and essential to making smarter investment decisions,” said Michael Markov (pictured), Co-Founder and CEO of Markov Processes International. “With a single click, Stylus Workspace provides our clients with more than two decades of fund analysis and factor modelling insights, enabling them to perform critical tasks for their organisations with greater precision, speed and clarity.”
Other major enhancements to MPI Stylus Pro Version 11.3 include:
Integrated economic data for fund analysis: a new library of economic indicators, rates, yields, spreads, volatility and other non-return data within the application can be used for factor analysis of individual funds and fund groups, creating macro-economic models and visualising investment sensitivity to such factors.
Improved fund universe analysis: MPI’s already industry-leading custom universe analysis now provides greater ability to create user-defined statistics to compare funds within the same fund universe, greatly enhancing the ability to identify funds based on unique criteria.
Enhanced fund universe reporting: Create reports that compare funds within the same universe along both standard or custom screening criteria, document your step-by-step fund screening, rating or monitoring processes and create executive level dashboards to guide investment strategy.
MPI Stylus Pro Version 11.3 also introduces several new features that improve analytical capabilities; fund universe surveillance; and report creation, design and flexibility.
“With this new release, MPI continues to push the boundaries of quantitative investment research, with a focus on making sophisticated analysis and monitoring of investment products much easier for clients,” adds Markov. “We are excited to have this version live and are already working on building out the next set of powerful features to help our clients make smarter investment decisions.”
