Aiming to discard the use of spreadsheets saved on individual desktops, Markaz approached StatPro looking for a solution for attribution analysis and reporting. A key requirement when evaluating technology solutions was the use of the Brinson model for attribution calculations. The customized reports within StatPro Revolution enable Markaz to view allocation effect as well as the success of selections. “We’re also able to see the interaction of chosen securities – it’s so simple to understand”.”I am consistently impressed by the wealth of support and service I get from the support team. They are friendly and there’s always one-to-one explanation around the reporting, functionality and how to maximize the value in the platform.”
