About EDS

Originally built inside of leading funds, to scale their investment process, EDS consists of configurable modules across the entire fundamental investment lifecycle: Idea Generation, Portfolio Construction, Research Management (RMS) and Risk Management.

In addition to centralizing all internal and external information, enveloping the system is purpose-built analytics that improves decision-making by helping your team analyze “why” you succeed and where the blind spots are.

We deliver this flexible system at a fraction of the cost and complexity of others. Ask about our POC program, where we prove our value upfront.

Northern Trust and EDS partner to form a best-in-class solution 

In early 2021, Northern Trust created a new division, Investment Data Science (IDS), with EDS at the center of their strategy to digitally transform clients’ front office across the entire investment lifecycle, leverage data science to provide more insights, and deliver more enhanced outcomes.

RESEARCH MANAGEMENT (RMS)

The thesis you document is just as important as the data that supports it. You take copious notes, every chance you have – analyst calls, earnings calls, management meetings, conferences, etc. You might even have a tearsheet that defines your investment thesis and projected risk and
returns.

All your research in one platform
Bring quantitative (estimates, models, price-targets) and qualitative information (notes, thesis, etc.) together in one platform to drive better utilization of your insights, improved collaboration and foster strong compliance practices.

Always up-to-date
Only EDS is up to date all the time (models, market data, estimates, etc.). No more static notes when you present to the team.

Fully configurable
EDS template engine makes it easy to create the perfect documents for your team – templates, tagging, version control and alerts.

High performance
Crazy fast and deep search – find anything, get as specific as you want.

INTEGRATED RISK MANAGEMENT

EDS helps your team break free of risk systems that are complex, inflexible, siloed, and expensive by providing a “best-in-class” platform that is configurable, integrated, cost effective and easy to use – analysts, PMs and traders instantly become more proactive, discovering hidden risks and opportunities. Just ask leading risk partners, such as MSCI and Wolfe Research.

Exposure analytics
Understand exposure from portfolio level down to strategy, sector, analyst and individual positions. Use our factor screener to drive risk-based idea generation.

Risk decomposition
Intuitive and flexible dashboards that include deep risk analysis (volatility, factor risk and VAR) for quick insights. Powerful simulation and optimization provides instant analysis of opportunities and risks.

Performance attribution
Understand what is driving performance in your portfolio. From absolute and relative factor-based (ex. idiosyncratic vs. style), including intra-day analysis to non-factor attribution, such as by analyst, geography, sector, hit ratios, EDS brings it together in one solution, configured to your team.

Stress testing
How would our portfolio have performed in 2000 or 2008, during higher interest rate regimes, or oil shocks – done. With EDS, powerful and configurable stress-testing and drawdown analysis is instantly available.
