Portfolio What-If Analysis

The What-if portfolio feature, a part of the Risk Shell Portfolio tools, allows you to create a testing hypothetical portfolio based on your actual investment portfolio. This lets you make changes to your portfolio, for example, adding, closing, reducing or increasing allocations - to see how it would affect the risk profile. Going beyond the common What-if analysis techniques that allow comparing just two instruments, Risk Shell offers you a deeper insight into risk profiles of hypothetical portfolios by comparing many-to-many instruments across hundreds of available risk statistics as well as factor exposure, style analysis and so on.
