Detailed but clear analytics of my clients’ investments. I want to understand ways to improve and make more robust portfolios
BNY Mellon PinPointSM analyzes the existing portfolio using a comprehensive range of risk and portfolio analytics to identify opportunities and structural weaknesses.
It drills down to gain an in-depth understanding of each portfolio to create a comprehensive snapshot. This analysis encompasses sector, market capitalization, regional exposure, style, duration, credit quality and maturity.
To understand how my clients’ portfolios will perform under periods of market stress
BNY Mellon PinPointSM stress-tests the portfolio to see how it might behave in response to a wide range of market scenarios. We can use our own market views and incorporate your own ideas into the scenarios.
The ability to communicate portfolios insights with my clients
As well as a consultation, BNY Mellon PinPointSM gives you comprehensive insights that you can use to help manage your next meeting or in conversations with your clients.
This is designed to be a long-term partnership between us and the advisor, in which we revisit the analytical process regularly – typically every six to twelve months – to reassess the portfolio, based on the prevailing market backdrop and the client’s evolving needs.
Identify opportunities, highlight structural weaknesses, and understand the right amount of risk exposure for the desired return
BNY Mellon PinPointSM is designed to deliver insights that will lead to better, more informed decisions and ultimately to more resilient, refined portfolios for your clients.
BNY Mellon PinPointSM looks through your portfolio to analyse its underlying holdings, thereby gaining a full picture of its strengths, weaknesses, possible opportunities and potential threats.
One of its key functions includes “What if..?” analysis in which the portfolio is stress-tested against varying market situations to see how it might behave. These situations include typical scenarios seen throughout the economic cycle – from bull or bear markets to scenarios of high or low growth, high or low volatility, and rising or falling interest rates – and also a range of exceptional historical events such as specific currency crises, oil crashes, and sovereign debt crises.
Comprehensive and clear with real substance
BNY Mellon PinPointSM’s exhaustive analysis culminates in a bespoke report that can be tailored for
each advisor to provide them with their preferred content and level of detail.
This comprehensive report includes:
Highly engaging visual design that contains only the most relevant content for advisors to provide a more compact, efficient leave-behind.
Dynamic, interactive, visual charts that summarize the changes between current and hypothetical portfolios, packaged for you in your report.
Includes a wide variety of “What-if...?” scenarios to compare performance between benchmark, current, and hypothetical portfolios to illustrate how they would have performed under various scenarios.
BNY Mellon PinPointSM is a comprehensive tool that offers valuable insights that can lead to better, more informed
decisions and ultimately to more resilient, refined portfolios for your clients.
