RBC Dexia launches powerful new performance measurement service

    TORONTO, Dec. 18 /CNW/ - RBC Dexia Investor Services is pleased to
introduce Security level attribution, the first in a series of enhanced
investment analytics services for institutional investors. Security level
attribution is a new service that provides institutional investors with
detailed fund analysis and concise performance reporting.
    "In today's investing environment, being able to measure and analyze all
aspects of a fund's performance can be as challenging as generating the
returns in the first place," said Fay Coroneos, Head, Risk & investment
analytics with RBC Dexia. "Security level attribution provides institutional
investors with access to the detailed performance insight they demand, without
the complexity and excessive infrastructure costs that usually accompany such
    Security level attribution provides customized analytics that can mirror
the holdings structures of a wide variety of mandates, ensuring accurate
monitoring of the manager's overall investment strategy. Institutional
investors can choose to customize performance and attribution measurement
through a wide range of options, including performance calculation
methodologies, portfolio segmentation definitions, multiple benchmarks and
more than 50 other risk and return measures such as Jenson's measure or alpha,
Sharpe, Treynor, downside deviation, drawdown and recovery period.
    "Security level attribution delivers true insight into a fund manager's
decision making process," said Coroneos. "Knowing how managers add value is
just as critical as knowing where they add it, be it by country or sector
preferences, allocation or security selection, or a host of other factors.
Security level attribution reveals these details and illustrates performance
not only by portfolio and segment, but by security level as well."
