IHS Markit has formed a strategic alliance with CloudAttribution to integrate their performance attribution capabilities into the thinkFolio investment management platform. The partnership aims to complement thinkFolio’s strategy of increasing flexibility, interoperability and delivering further analytics insights to address the evolving needs of the front office.
It brings together thinkFolio’s multi-asset decision support suite and CloudAttribution’s cloud-native, performance attribution models and technology for fixed income and multi-asset portfolio management. The integration will enable mutual clients of thinkFolio and CloudAttribution to bring performance attribution to their desktops and to flexibly evaluate portfolio performance for a variety of cross-asset institutional investment strategies, including ESG.
Brett Schechterman, global head of thinkFolio at IHS Markit, said in a statement: “thinkFolio clients can now apply a flexible post-trade lens to unlock insights as to which levers within their decision framework impacted active returns.”
