Analytics-Enhanced Indices

Enhanced by advanced optimization and portfolio construction

Investment strategies are only becoming increasingly complex. Investors inevitably face tradeoffs balancing numerous objectives that not only include traditional risk-return considerations, but also sustainability criteria.

To help our clients meet their multiple investment objectives, we combine leading optimization and risk analytics capabilities with innovative index construction to balance these different tradeoffs and build indices that satisfy our clients’ unique needs. And, by taking an open architecture approach to index construction, we can work with a range of best-in-class data from leading providers to ensure the right fit regardless of the investment strategy.

Use our optimization and portfolio analytics in the index construction process to balance the tradeoff between risk, return and other objectives:

  • Incorporate sustainability objectives related to sustainability performance (typically measured by an ESG score) specific climate profile and contributions to the SDGs: For example, maximize sustainability exposures for a given level of tracking error or minimize tracking error while obtaining the highest possible ESG score.
  • Obtain desired factor exposures: For example, tilt to one or more factor exposures to enhance returns over time while minimizing tracking error, turnover, and other deviations from the broad market.
