Credit Specialists

Simplify complexity with specialized analytics.

It’s the dawn of a new era, one where active asset managers must quantify their value add through deep and relevant analytics. As an asset class, credit is challenging. Yet through an unprecedented analytics suite and an intuitive interface, Novus has enabled a totally unique level of insight into our portfolio, and facilitated a new kind of dialogue with our investors.

Novus drastically simplifies the complexities at our firm. The platform is notably smooth and easy to navigate, especially compared to cumbersome alternatives. Using Novus, we can communicate our firm’s story and respond to inquiries in real time. The people are incredibly impressive as well—everyone we’ve interacted with has remained responsive and exceptionally capable at every turn.

Novus is the forefront of portfolio analytics. The team members I've interacted with are extremely knowledgeable and approach any potential challenge with a “can-do” attitude. The functionality, ease of use, and speed of the platform is amazing. Novus reveals the true source of our returns, allowing us to focus on our strengths. Knowing where to focus and what to avoid is paramount for a small boutique firm like JMS.

How 

Credit Specialists

use 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.
