So what is Fixed Income Attribution?

In today’s performance driven environment, it is vital for a portfolio manager, as well as the investor, to be able to understand the source of portfolio returns, determine how well the portfolio performs and also quantify the impact of active management decisions on the total portfolio performance.
Whilst the Brinson-Fachler model has been proved to be adequate for equity portfolios, it cannot appropriately describe the performance of Fixed Income portfolios.
Based on extensive research, we have implemented a robust methodology which incorporates a granular set of effects that drive the performance of a fixed income portfolio fully integrated with APX and Geneva solutions.
Our Fixed Income Attribution solution enables APX, but also Geneva, users to identify the sources of the portfolio’s return based on its fundamental sensitivities to systematic factors, assess the effect of the fund manager’s strategic decisions, as well as to spot out any rising risks.
