London, 8 April 2021 – Portfolio attribution analytics are used by a wide array of buy-side institutions to defend their investment philosophy and practices. Within this practice, fixed income attribution analytics (FIAA) are specialized metrics that a variety of vendors offer. In the face of growing competition from passive alternatives, the examination of portfolio or fund performance is an area both portfolio managers and clients are eager to understand in increasing detail. Investment firms and institutional investors that need to explain performance will increasingly have to do so across all asset classes as portfolios become more complex. As a result, there is a growing need for specialized analytical techniques and third-party providers.
This report explores some of the key trends within the FIAA vendor market and discusses the ways in which technology is evolving to address both historical needs and newer market challenges.
