ClariFI™, a Standard & Poor’s Capital IQ business and leading provider of software and services focused on quantitative portfolio management and research, today announced that Bain Capital has deployed ModelStation™ in their Absolute Return Capital (ARC) affiliate as a way to accelerate their quantitative strategy research.
ModelStation was chosen for its robust alpha research, backtesting, and portfolio construction capabilities, and ARC will leverage the technology to develop and manage equity strategies that meet their performance and risk requirements. ARC has standardized their quantitative portfolio management operations onto ModelStation, and they have integrated it with their proprietary database and third party optimization technology and risk models.
“With ModelStation we can develop and test our factor construction and portfolio strategies more efficiently,” said Sylvia Han, who heads equity research and portfolio management at ARC. “The openness of the system also allows us to leverage the investments we have made in proprietary databases and other third party tools. Overall, I’d say that ModelStation is making our lives a lot easier and supports our goal to generate superior returns.”
“We are excited to add such a prestigious firm to our client list,” said Donovan Goodreau, Vice President of Business Development at ClariFI. “We look forward to a long-term relationship with Bain where our products and services are able to give them a competitive advantage in the marketplace.”
