Thomson Financial upgrades Vestek risk tool and interface

03 April 2003  |  3608 views  |  0 Thomson Financial upgrades Vestek risk tool and interface

Thomson Financial has upgraded its Vestek Fundamental Risk Model, a tool for identifying and managing portfolio risk, and has enhanced the Web-interface to its Vestek Portfolio Analyzer application to support short positions and exchange traded funds.

Vestek Fundamental Risk Model, which replaces the previous US Risk Model, retains the underlying framework of a linear multiple-factor model but now includes changes to model inputs, estimation techniques, new common factors and industry groupings.

Suresh Kavan, president, Thomson Financial's investment management group, says the new model has been incorporated into Vestek Portfolio Analyzer to provide clients with the tools to effectively assess and manage risk in portfolios.
