Allocate bonds more effectively with the waterfall methodology
Overcome one of the biggest issues facing fixed income managers, deciding how to allocate bonds across accounts. With increased scrutiny into how bonds are allocated, IMTC affords users the ability to use a waterfall methodology to assist with allocation. This enables users to equitably distribute bonds across portfolios.
Using the waterfall allocation methodology, you can:
- Allocate bonds using a rules-based function by setting weights across different metrics that factor into how bonds are allocated.
- Define multiple waterfall criteria for ranking priority using pre-defined logic to ensure allocations are fair and can be monitored by compliance.
- Adhere to compliance restrictions and investment targets as rules are embedded into allocation methodology.
