Integrated Performance Analysis
Northstar Risk software provides detailed performance analysis, allowing hedge fund managers to objectively judge the performance of different strategies and to fully understand the drivers of past performance.
Our performance analysis platform is fully integrated with our risk analytics. The same factors that are used to analyze current risk, are also used to explain past performance. In the same way that you can group and drill down into your portfolio to better understand your risk statistics, you can group and drill down into your portfolio to better understand your performance.
Fully-Automated Advanced Analytics
Just as with our risk statistics, our performance analytics are fully automated. Your performance numbers are always available and always up to date.
Our performance statistics include both simple and advanced measures. They include:
Attribution: market, sector, country, style, macro, alpha
Bayesian performance analysis
Superior Risk-Based Profit Attribution
Traditional profit attribution is based solely on profit and loss data. This is fine for long-only portfolios and for portfolios whose composition is constant over time, but for hedge fund portfolios the results of this analysis are often misleading.
To properly evaluate hedge fund performance, you need transaction data and security-level risk exposures. Using data and analytics from our risk engine, Northstar is able to provide accurate profit attribution, even for the most complex hedge fund strategies. Read more here.
