Congress plans to pass a bill to lower corporate tax rates sometime this year. As per your analysis, you have determined consumer staples companies such as Procter & Gamble and Wal-Mart will benefit the most from the lower tax rates. You don't want to invest in individual stocks because they carry a greater risk, but instead want to hold a basket of securities to reduce the risk. So you decide the best way to gain exposure to consumer staples stocks is to invest in an ETF (Exchange Traded Fund) holding a variety of stocks for diversification. How do you find the right ETFs to invest in that have exposure to consumer staples stocks? How do you track money flowing into these ETFs?
Our team helps users answer questions such as these through a variety of terminal functions we own. Our functions provide information, analytics and search capabilities for a variety of funds such as exchange traded funds, mutual funds and hedge funds. We store data for about 750,000 fund securities and this universe of funds is continously expanding. We are constantly trying to enhance our function capabilites to meet user needs while trying to improving user experience and upgrading our infrastructure. Some of our projects in our pipeline are building a new classification system for funds, implementing a new fund permissioning system, creating better search functions that makes greater use of our Solr infrastructure, creation of a new fund return analysis function and migration to linux architecture.
