Northern Trust has launched a new investment analytics tool to provide institutional investors across the globe with valuable insights when tracking and analyzing risk and performance across their portfolios.

This latest enhancement from Northern Trust’s Investment Risk and Analytical Services (IRAS) group introduces Performance RADAR, a new proprietary reporting tool offering a contemporary, intelligent user experience for accessing performance, attribution, contributions and ex-post risk results online across individual and aggregated portfolios.

Northern Trust is leveraging new technologies to deliver more efficient processing and content integration alongside enhanced visualization capabilities. The introduction of persona-based set up enables speed of implementation while delivering the most relevant information to each user.

Serge Boccassini, product lead – Investment Accounting and Analytic Solutions at Northern Trust said: “Performance RADAR allows asset owners and asset managers to amalgamate and synthesize large amounts of complex data though flexible visualization tools. Our clients can find information quickly using powerful graphics and intuitively compare performance results. The result is that we provide clients with greater insights into their analytics – faster and more efficiently than ever before.”

Last year, we introduced our Compliance RADAR platform which offers clients intuitive investment guideline compliance workflow and reporting capabilities. Compliance RADAR has been very well received by our clients and the introduction of Performance RADAR is another key milestone in the execution of our user-focused digital strategy.”
