RavenPack, a provider of big data analytics to financial institutions, announced the launch of a new portfolio ranking tool based on sentiment factors that ranks, on demand, more than 50,000 companies to help financial professionals build stronger portfolios.
Financial users can upload a stock portfolio and tailor their analysis to address specific risks detected across 19,000 sources including news, social media, regulatory filings, and transcripts. Hundreds of thematic factors can be taken into account for their stock rankings to monitor for headline risk, identify sentiment leaders and laggards, or flag companies that are no longer aligned with their strategy.
Investors can also apply a selection of screening criteria and better manage reputational risks by identifying controversial companies in their portfolio. For example, users can filter out companies experiencing negative environmental, social, or governance (ESG) events, or rank high those with positive earnings and product sentiment.
The screening tool allows users to instantly create lists of positive or negative sentiment stocks for short or long term investment horizons. Customizable factors means users can construct and rank portfolios that best fit their investment style and criteria.
