What's New In Investments, Funds? – MSCI

The latest news in investment offerings, financial products and other services relative to wealth advisors and their clients.

MSCI, which provides market benchmarks and other measures of investment returns, is making use of AI to help investors to spot and manage risks to portfolios more easily.

The new offering is called MSCI AI Portfolio Insights. It blends artificial intelligence with MSCI’s analytics tools and advanced modelling technologies.

MSCI AI Portfolio Insights merges generated text with modern dashboards and cloud-based technology to enhance communication and efficiency in risk and portfolio management. 

“Institutional investors both can and must shift their risk teams from being largely control-oriented to also being an investment-focused function,” Ashley Lester, chief research officer at MSCI, said. “With MSCI AI Portfolio Insights, we are transforming risk reporting to make it more insightful and more accessible to investment decision makers.”

The group also has rolled out the Macro Finance Analyzer today. This is designed to test how changes to macroeconomic conditions – for instance rate hikes and cuts – could affect a portfolio’s risks and returns across asset classes, such as equities and bonds.
