FMCSylvan Launches New Perf. Measurement Version

October 17, 2001 ( - Financial Models Company Inc. (FMC) has launched FMCSylvan 5.1, the latest version of its performance measurement and attribution system.

The new version offers a browser-based interface that enables global access to performance measurement and performance attribution data. Customizable reports can be generated through a Web portal.

FMCSylvan 5.1’s composite management feature assists portfolio managers in meeting AIMR and GIPS requirements when reporting past performance, without exporting data to another application.

In addition to its existing capacity for additive and multiplicative attribution, FMCSylvan 5.1 also enables cascading attribution, enabling users to perform attribution analysis on the entire portfolio, and individual securities.

Furthermore, because FMCSylvan 5.1 is extensible, data can be exported to any type of Web reporting solution.
