Trend Monitoring

Find market trends first

Our solution is an easy visual environment that lets you answer questions about stocks, bonds, derivatives and funds, 10 to 100 times faster than you can with spreadsheets or statistics packages. It all happens in a simple workbook that any Excel user can quickly master.

With our Data engine, you can work with huge volumes of data such as intraday trading data and years of data for thousands of securities.

This dashboard lets you inspect the daily trading details of publicly traded technology stocks. Adjust the filters to examine a specific industry or to change the date range. You can identify those days with large trading volume (use the volume filter), or compare the return/ volume dynamics of different companies.

Securities Analysis

Quickly explore opportunities and optimize costs

Any analytics application can create a stock price and volume chart. But how do you use data to drive down trading costs, reduce portfolio risk, discover anomalous trades, and look for opportunities? We support these goals by letting you pan and zoom through large volumes of data, filter to areas you’re interested in, and drill into the underlying trading history. Imagine calculating compound returns and regressions with a click, and seeing visual results instantly.

This dashboard lets you explore the performance of a basket of technology IPOs. The indexes are based on company auditor. Select an index in the upper visualization and see the companies that comprise them in the bottom visualization. Use the application to compare the performance of different indexes over different periods.

For instance, adjust the filters to see whether the PWC or KPMG index offered the best returns during the first 300 days after IPO. As you investigate, you’ll notice that the top performing indexes were reliant on a few super star companies.

Investment Reporting

Rapidly create client investment reports and distribute them securely via the web

Financial firms are increasingly competing on their ability to offer clients access to rich, relevant data. But how do you deliver information to clients in a way that is visual, interactive and easy? How do you build online customer portals without suffering from the cost and inflexibility of a slow-moving business intelligence platform?

We let you construct information portals without heavy development. Our server installs quickly and scales to tens of thousands of private users on the web. The interactive dashboards it provides can be embedded in a broader customer portal initiative, or used as a stand-alone system. The level of data access and interactivity is under your control and can vary from client to client.

This is a portfolio monitoring dashboard for a major investment client. Use the dashboard to evaluate portfolio risk. Selecting countries in the upper view filters the lower visualizations of issuer and rating concentration. The client can filter the entire dashboard by asset class or ratings group to better understand the specific issuers and investment trends for that cross section of the portfolio. Explore the dashboard to discover that investments in Europe have been becoming riskier in recent quarters.

Portfolio Analysis

Visualize performance for customized portfolios in minutes

This application lets clients explore revenue growth for publicly traded software companies, based on data from their S1s and 10-Ks. All sales numbers have been inflation adjusted. Select lines in the upper visualization to filter to the details below.

The visualization is filled with investment stories and insights. For instance, most successful technology companies aren’t rocket ships. Only 28% of the nation’s most successful public software empires were rocket ships. (A rocket ship is defined as a company that reached $50 million in annual sales in 6 years or less).
