How Asset Owners Use SEI Novus

Aggregate your allocations across equity, credit/fixed income, private equity, real assets, and more. Harmonize multiple transparency levels to achieve unified visibility into your entire portfolio.

Uncover the impact of hypothetical transactions. What if I redeem from this manager? What if I increase my allocation here? Use data to asses your intuition, before committing.

Research historic portfolio performance and measure manager uniqueness using global ownership data. Uncover true drivers of performance with skill-set analytics. Monitor managers over time, and watch for style drift.

Automate reports so you can focus on what you do best—making investment decisions. Tailor reports to match your unique needs, add your logo and brand colors, and then schedule automatic updates to send to stakeholders.

Analyze your exposures by strategy, geography, sector, market cap, or set custom categories. Drill down and view your underlying positions. Drill-down further and see who contributes to those positions. Go “top to bottom” in just seconds.

What is Portfolio Intelligence?

Data is the lifeblood of our industry, offering countless avenues for analysis. However, the volume and complexity of our data means the approaches that have been so effective in delivering intelligence to other sectors are not adequate. Today, data is both the biggest challenge and the biggest opportunity investors face on their paths to achieving true portfolio intelligence.

How to prepare operationally for an evolving investment landscape?

The fiduciary pressure is extraordinary. Layer on lofty equity valuations, rates at historical extremes, longstanding economic relationships under question, and an ever-expanding universe of asset classes and investment vehicles. Institutional investing teams can be hard-pressed to keep up with the technological, data, operating and investing requirements.

Novus has been a strong partner for us since our launch nearly three years ago. With their help we have organized and analyzed a dizzying amount of data from our custodians and external managers. Their teams are smart, hard-working, highly skilled, and helpful. They are a pleasure to work with.

Novus is instrumental in identifying and understanding the skill-sets and fundamentals within manager portfolios. In today's landscape, you can't get far without premier data and analytics. When you invest with a manager, you are trusting they perform incredible company-level research in order to develop a divergent view that captures excess returns. For us at Atom, we do that same level of research on our managers before we invest, and Novus is the foundation of this process.
