PSN is one of the leading investment manager search and evaluation databases. Through the PSN SMA database, advisors and institutional investors may access more than 2,000 money managers and 20,000 products. From there, they can measure performance, conduct detailed statistical analysis and assess risk with flexibility and ease.
"Chicago Board Options Exchange is pleased to assist Informa's PSN on collecting and analyzing CBOE's options-based strategy performance benchmark indexes. Our dialogue helped Informa's PSN create an options writing classification to evaluate the performance of option writing investments within their PSN Universe," said Matt Moran, Vice President of Institutional Marketing, Business Development, for CBOE.
In addition to the new options universe, PSN added nine global macro universes to its PSN Published Universes. Global macro strategies generally focus on financial instruments that are broad in scope and whose prices fluctuate based on economic, political and capital flows around the world. They include equity, fixed income, interest rate, currency and stock index strategies, while using derivatives to manage risk.
The nine new PSN global macro universes are:
- PSN Global Macro Global Balanced
- PSN Global Macro Global Equity
- PSN Global Macro Global Fixed Income
- PSN Global Macro International Balanced
- PSN Global Macro International Equity
- PSN Global Macro International Fixed Income
- PSN Global Macro US Balanced
- PSN Global Macro US Equity
- PSN Global Macro US Fixed Income
