Analytics Split Into Products Tailored for Specific Users
Opera Solutions said Thursday it is splitting its industry analytics into two offerings, one of which is aimed at traders’ pretrade needs, and the other for portfolio analysis.
“With this launch, the Mobiuss product suite now works across both MBS and whole loan portfolios and has new highly refined functionality for both front office and portfolio management needs,” said Jon Di Giambattista, vice president at Opera Solutions, in an email response to a question about how improvements to the product differ from its previous form.
He said improvements in the traders’ front office product include or have been applied to features used to integrate market bid lists and mortgage-backed securities pricing data, functionality allowing traders to perform price/yield comparisons and multiple scenario valuation analyses, and interfaces aimed at making it easier to shift views from portfolio-level insight to individual loans through a single-click process. (Black Box Logic provides loan level data utilized by the product, which also has integrations with Intex cash flow analytics.)
Also improved in this product are stratifications of collateral data aimed at giving traders quick views of assets’ status and trends over multiple time periods.
In addition, it has added a feature where anomalies are flagged with the aim of showing whether bond collateral is underperforming or outperforming peer bonds.
The new portfolio product is aimed at allowing portfolio holders to efficiently load and analyze assets, with access to loan-level and risk models as well as cash flow generation analytics. It can be used for analysis of loan characteristics and performance as well as predictive analyses and property market forecasts. Information can be shared or generated in report form.
