Information Management

 


Information Connect

information-connect

Calibre provides a wide range of superior datasets to integrate into your process. We capture traditional research, estimates and market data for all key global markets as well as economic fundamentals, industry data and wide ranging 'big data' feeds.  Through Information Connect we link these varied external datasets into our Investor Model.  This allows you to connect data sources to a Sector, Industry or Company.  Information Connect will continue to update the information over time - allowing you to focus on changes that impact the investment thesis.

Interests and NOTIFICATIONS

interests-notifications

Calibre's unique approach to keeping you informed - our notifications present you with the most useful view of what has happened since you last logged in.  These notifications relate to inferred connections between the analyst, companies, geographical regions and commodities, as well as direct coverage and watchlist style associations.  Our tools give you a system for addressing new events, deferring them for later or linking them in novel ways to companies or other analysts.

Process Visualisation 



PROCESS BUILDER

process-builder

The proliferation of information has made data overload a key challenge for investment teams.  Process Builder inverts the problem by starting with the investment process and working back to data sources that are required to generate alpha.  Notifications alert the user to relevant changes based on the factors and research that the systems knows (or can infer) you are interested in.  This unique approach is the best way to control data and put it to work.

Factor Mapping

factor-mapping

Calibre allows investors to identify those factors which drive earnings, valuations and share prices. These factors relationships can be populated using overlays of quantitative regression testing, qualitative assessment and company model assumption scenarios.  This novel approach allows each approach to cross-check the others. Using powerful visualisation models, Calibre Factor Mapping allows analysts to monitor hundreds of data factors across thousands of securities and see where changes may present opportunity.  Without factor mapping and visualisation models, analysts are soon overwhelmed and opportunities are missed.

Team Monitor

team-monitor

Retrospectives

retrospectives

View decisions made over time in terms of the team's theoretical approach and expected alpha-generating factors to see where improvements can be made.  The retrospectives module completes the circle, and provides the information your team needs to go back to Process Builder and make process changes.
