Infiniti Capital Unveils Portfolio Modeling And Analysis Tools

Aug 7 2009 | 11:00am ET

Fund of funds group Infiniti Capital today announced the launch of its Infiniti Analytics Suite (IAS) which has been in development for the past 18 months.

The IAS is a portfolio modeling and analysis software package for hedge funds and mutual funds. Infiniti Capital has used the system internally since early 2005.

The IAS is designed to improve investor returns and reducing down side risk. According to the firm, the system gives faster, easier and more flexible access to intuitive, meaningful portfolio analysis, thereby allowing for greater time to be spent interpreting outputs and less time trying to obtain them.

“The software has been in Beta testing for the past four months with a test group of 200 people and the feedback thus far has been very positive,” says Peter Urbani, IAS project originator and Infiniti CIO. “This package has been built by portfolio managers for portfolio managers and does not suffer the operational difficulties of most other larger packages which are primarily accounting systems with a portfolio module added on as an afterthought.” 

“We have paid particular attention to the workflow of the portfolio management process and have designed the system around this, with ease of use in mind,” says Tim Steer, IAS project manager and Infiniti’s head of quantitative research. “The IAS seeks to improve portfolio development time, requiring the user to import an Excel or .csv file, with only a few additional button clicks required to analyze or improve their portfolio.”

The initial launch version of the IAS sells at roughly half the price of similar packages, which brings it within the budget range of most family offices, high end independent financial advisors and other intermediaries.

According to the firm, data security was a major issue that was considered, all data remains confidential to the user and is not shared with Infiniti.
