As an independent specialist, Ortec Finance provides decision support software for Asset Managers, to help them manage the complexity of investment decisions. Ortec Finance designs, builds, and applies solutions for (dynamic) investment strategies, ex-ante and ex-post risk management and performance measurement and risk attribution.
Financial dislocations and economic developments force Asset Managers to define an effective (dynamic) investment strategy. In an ongoing search for return in a risk-controlled manner, Asset Managers are required to invest with a full understanding of the potential risks involved. There is a tendency to focus on the micro level, whereas macro-level decisions usually have a greater impact on risk and return.
In addition, stakeholders increasingly demand more insight and transparency regarding the performance of Asset Managers. A key aspect of performance analysis is to determine the contribution of asset classes, sectors, or even individual securities, to the risk and return of portfolios. Accurate performance measurement and attribution can show which segments consistently add value on a risk-adjusted basis and which do not, and help to identify strengths and weaknesses of the investment process.
