Want to get started in the world of investment? Are you frightened by all the technical jargon and worried because it looks hard? If so, Macroaxis may be for you. Macroaxis is a service that manages investments and uses the Modern Portfolio Theory (MPT) to do so. The MPT “is based on simplicity, speed, accessibility and enhanced user experience, making technology that was once accessible only to professional money managers, available to the entire investing community”. This is why the company describes itself as “sophisticated”, but above all else, “simple”. Its competitors include Hedgeable, Prosperity Financial Services, and Envestnet Asset Management. But, its’ competitors do not have the same level of simplicity, and now a new module makes things even simpler.
In November of 2012, Macroaxis added yet another module to its list of twenty resources that are designed to help you invest wisely. This new module is called Portfolio Suggestion and “helps investors to optimize their portfolios using pre-computed investing themes. The new module will allow self-guided investors to receive suggestions that significantly increase risk-adjusted returns on their existing portfolios in real time. In addition to letting investors optimize their existing positions, the Macroaxis Suggestion module gives users a robust and scalable tool to generate a range of efficient portfolios based on investor preferences and constrains, a technique widely used by professional money managers, financial advisers, and hedge fund administrators.” The site’s resource section includes many other modules, like a company directory and portfolio analyzer.
With the addition of this new module, it is clear that the company's mission is to "shift focus on personal investment software beyond conventional portfolio management to use advances in software technology and financial engineering to generate new, valuable investing alternatives taking into account changes in market conditions, investor sentiment, and economic outlook -- all in real time.”
With regards to the new module, it is very simple: “Users can create a portfolio from existing themes or by specifying their own model portfolios. Themes are pre-computed based on industries, type of instruments, sector characteristics, news, investor sentiment, corporate announcements, and many other criteria. The new Macroaxis Suggestion module helps investors achieve their goals by providing an improved optimization engine with built-in micro-workflow to generate portfolios where total risk is minimized and expected return is maximized. With Macroaxis Portfolio Suggestion, investors can clearly see how their existing portfolios can be improved to generate better performing alternatives across different markets and time horizons.”
Macroaxis has plenty of modules that simplify investing and make managing your stock portfolio easy. This includes the new Portfolio Suggestion module. All things considered, Macroaxis seeks to “deliver measurable value in the form of improved return on investment portfolios of investors of all levels and skills.”
