The Hedge Fund Overlap Matrix is an irreplaceable tool for investors to understand the portfolio composition of their managers and their own exposure to individual securities.
New York, New York (PRWEB) March 17, 2015
Novus, a portfolio analytics and intelligence platform that helps institutional investors analyze their portfolios, today announced the release of their updated Hedge Fund Overlap Matrix, a free interactive tool that allows users to access public holdings data. This tool is updated every quarter with the latest holdings information.
The overlap matrix is an interactive visualization that provides users with an innovative way to explore manager portfolios. Overlap is a measure of similarity between portfolios; and the matrix is a collection of 2500 overlap values. Behind each overlap value are securities that are shared by the two intersecting managers. The visualizations enable users to study managers’ uniqueness, crowdedness, and sizing, as well as individual investments. For this matrix, Novus uses public holdings data for a group of 50 managers associated with Julian Robertson’s Tiger Management: the Tiger Cubs.
“The Hedge Fund Overlap Matrix is an irreplaceable tool for investors to understand the portfolio composition of their managers and their own exposure to individual securities,” said Stanley Altshuller, Chief Research Officer at Novus. “It allows them to grasp manager similarities, crowded positions, and the diversification value each manager adds. Managers use the tool to identify other investors in their names and gauge the level of crowding in each security.”
