Take advantage of on-the-fly results using an intuitive custom query builder across factor data with the security search interface. Security Search is located under the “Market” tab in the top menu and can be used to find names that satisfy certain factor criteria which can then be used to hedge out certain risks.

A query can filter down names by 

  • security descriptors (country, market cap, liquidity)
  • security universe (membership in portfolios, watchlists, and ETFs)
  • factor risk values
  • factor exposure characteristics

For example, a security query can include the following filters:

  • Securities in S&P500
  • MarketCap between $20B - 50B
  • Average Daily Volume over $200M
  • Total Risk less than 35%
  • Specific Risk is greater than 75% (risk decomposition)
  • Growth exposure is greater than 0.1 (z-score)

Search Results Configuration

Custom Columns
Once search results are generated, the security search displays securities in a table for easy comparison along various metrics. This table can be customized by selecting on the columns icon, which allows the removal and additional of up to 12 columns to view and sort by.

Group Results By Sector, Country, Currency
In addition, all search results are automatically counted by sector, country, and currency, as seen on the panel to the left. Clicking on one or more of these groups will further filter down the results table to show the securities that relate to all selected groups.
