Added to Marketplace: May 20, 2022


Automate your optimization workflow and benefit from increased efficiency with off-the-shelf batching capabilities. Power your workflow in environments of your choice with UI and API versions of all optimizer products.

Implement fat-tail methodology, multi-period optimization, and real-world predictive power using FactSet’s own optimizer to construct portfolios that maximize your return. Alternatively, use Monte Carlo simulation, an ETL-based optimization, to more accurately and coherently model risk when asset returns are non-normally distributed, by accounting for skewness and fat-tails within the return distribution.

Benefit from the flexibility to trial all optimizer offerings on FactSet and choose the best solution to fit your specific workflow needs.
