Advanced Equity Attribution


StatPro Revolution is the culmination of the breadth and depth of StatPro’s incredible expertise in portfolio analytics and reporting. Performance attribution quantifies the relationship between a portfolio’s excess return and the active decisions of the portfolio manager. It is an important tool to provide feedback to portfolio managers, senior management, clients and external consultants on why the portfolio either outperformed or underperformed a benchmark.

StatPro Revolution provides advanced equity attribution following the standard Brinson methodology. It breaks down a portfolio’s performance into allocation, selection and optionally, interaction. Attribution analysis can be calculated in StatPro Revolution using either the arithmetic (GRAP) or geometric approach.

StatPro Revolution provides fast and flexible risk reporting with extended asset class coverage to enable a more transparent illustration of risk exposure and value at risk.

Portfolio Compliance Monitoring


Regulations are putting increasing pressure on asset managers in the field of portfolio compliance monitoring. One of the most important events in the regulatory landscape has been the implementation of the AIFM Directive in 2014. StatPro’s risk limits and commitment leverage monitoring calculates the commitment exposure of a portfolio, satisfying the complex rules designed for derivative instruments, including  pre-defined UCITS and  AIFMD (Annex IV) reports.

Risk Management


A certain level of risk is essential to any investment strategy. Equally essential is managing this risk. With StatPro’s Risk Management solutions, an investment manager will have a transparent view of risk for portfolio construction, regulatory requirements, and investor relations.

We not only provide standard measures of risk and volatility, but we have also pioneered many enhancements that will help managers isolate critical drivers of risk. We employ advanced models yet present the results in a highly transparent and intuitive interface that can easily be digested by both sophisticated practitioners and concerned investors.

Key features

  • Multiple ex-ante risk measures including Value-at-Risk and CVaR (expected shortfall) at a variety of confidence levels, potential gain, volatility, tracking error and diversification grade. These measures are available in both absolute and relative basis.
  • Full re-pricing methodology using advanced models based on Quantlib, the leading open-source project for quantitative finance that StatPro founded. StatPro has one of the industry’s widest asset coverage (with over 300 pricing functions), which makes it the perfect solution for many different types of asset managers.
  • Sensitivity analysis to key risk factors including interest rates, credit spreads, commodities, volatility, currencies, and inflation. Additionally, stress tests can be applied to portfolios using historical or engineered conditions.
  • An integrated credit model that dynamically provides a highly predictive gauge of risk for credit sensitive securities.
  • A standardized methodology to capture market liquidity risk. Unlike other measures of liquidity risk that use incomplete information and generalized assumptions, our methodology illustrates potential monetary loss of liquidation based on a more complete view of liquidity– all broken down by components of liquidity risk, namely bid/ask spreads, market cap, nominal size, instrument type, and size of ownership.
  • A stable and reliable assessment of tail risk called Hybrid VaR that counters the pro-cyclicality of other measures in the market. Along with conditional VaR, Hybrid VaR provides a clear indication of tail risk that traditional measures don’t capture.
  • Complete UCITS IV risk reporting service, when used together with other StatPro’s products, to ensure compliance with UCITS IV risk regulations in Europe.
  • Enhanced transparency through robust risk decomposition functionality.
