UR Launches Bloomberg App for RTS Rating of Portfolios

Singapore, 11-th November, 2018. Universal Ratings launches a Bloomberg App for Resistance-to-Shocks Ratings of portfolios. The App allows Bloomberg Terminal users to compute the Resistance-to-Shocks, or resilience, of an arbitrary portfolio composed of tradable financial products such as stocks, ETFs, bonds, funds, futures, funds, etc.

The App requires the user to type a list of tickers corresponding to the securities composing a given portfolio and to specify the number of trading days to be considered in the analysis. The calculations are based on the adjusted closing price of each security. The computational engine runs on Amazon Web Services and may be accessed by clients requiring special large-volume analyses without necessarily going via Bloomberg Terminals.

“This is the second Bloomberg Terminal App that we launch”, said Dr. J. Marczyk, the Founder and Chairman of Universal Ratings. “While the first one enables Bloomberg Terminal users to rate any company, based on its Standardized Balance Sheet, this one opens a far greater range of possibilities”, he added. “Until today, a unified and fully automated rating system for generic portfolios has not been available. With this App, it will be possible for investors, traders and analysts to quickly measure the resilience of their portfolios and to identify which components thereof induce potential fragility and volatility” he concluded.

An example of report is illustrated below. The securities at the top of the chart shown below, known as the Portfolio Complexity Profile, are those that induce potential fragilities as well as well as volatility.
