Features & Benefits

  • One universal optimization platform offering a range of existing models and the ability to easily create custom ones for specific optimization problems.

  • Optimization can be executed backwards for portfolio performance analysis. Track your actual or what-if-scenario portfolio versus the efficient frontier, on daily, monthly or annual basis. Results are available as live web report, integrating in a single view, holding positions, risk, return and P&L against the optimal portfolio.

  • QR Optimization™ determines the portfolio allocation across assets that minimizes negative indicators such as risk (VaR, exposure, losses, cost of capital, CFaR or EaR), or maximizes positive indicators such as net cash, profit or return.

  • Tactical short-term optimization in real-time trading, produces highly accurate buy-sell strategies that can significantly increase profit or return, taking advantaged of anticipated opportunities in volatile markets.

  • Strategic optimization combined with what-if-scenario projections over long horizons is used for forecasting, planning and valuation of cash, ALM, balance sheets, assets, funds and investments.

Treasury Cash Optimization

  • Optimization of corporate and treasury cash supply chain across multiple businesses, locations, jurisdictions, currencies, banks, lenders, loans, credits, etc., subject to multiple constraints on liquidity, working capital, taxation and regulatory requirements.

  • Optimization of the liability portfolio across fixed versus float interest rate loans, FX and bonds, with multiple objectives, e.g., minimize cost and risk.

  • Optimize the asset and investment portfolio across fixed versus float interest rate and FX holdings, money market instruments. Maximize liquidity, cash and return.

  • Optimization of financing of investment opportunities across a portfolio of internal and external financing. Price and mitigate risk.

  • Dynamic Discounting. Optimize AP to yield risk free enhancements to corporate earnings. Determine optimal daily discount rates to offer the supply chain against accelerated payment of invoices, subject to liquidity and cash flow constraints.

  • Dynamic Pricing. Optimize AR to enhance cash and Liquidity. Determine optimal daily discount rates for good and services, to maximize sales subject to operational, inventory, cost, cash and liquidity constraints.

  • Use optimization to design best payment alternatives to offer clients across a range of internal and external financing options.

Optimal Asset Allocation

  • Specify the desired universe of asset classes and subclasses, e.g., mutual funds, equities, bonds, money markets, small cap, large caps, emerging markers, technology, financial stock, etc. The returns, risk and efficient frontier are automatically created, and you can track and match your portfolio against the efficient frontier. Returns can be intraday or monthly.

  • You can optimize a portfolio to reach a set return with minimum risk. The return constraints can be per asset class, e.g., 12% on large caps, or an aggregate overall return of 10%. You can optimize a portfolio to maximize return for a set risk profile, say 10% for modest to 30% for aggressive risk taking.

Banking Optimization

  • Balance sheet optimization to maximize banks’ return, minimize risk, all under internal and regulatory constraints.

  • Banks subject to BASEL III, face the very complex task of optimizing their balance sheet under nonlinear liquidity and capital constraints.

  • Optimizing balance sheet and trading books to minimize cost of capital.

Modeling Complexities and Optimization

  • Multiple constraints can be added: max and min on each asset class weight. E.g., bonds, not to exceed 45%. Total budget constraint as sum of portfolio weights. Inequality range for min and max weight allocation per asset class, or the ratios amongst asset classes.

  • Nonlinear constraints such as liquidity or capital ratios.

  • Trading and taxation constraints and costs.

  • Dynamic multiple time step optimization and path dependency of buy and sell or asset allocation decisions across subsequent timeframes.


  • Multiple nonlinear costs and constraints, the possibility of negative weight (selling assets), path dependency and multi-step dynamic optimization are complexities that invalidate traditional closed form linear or quadratic optimization solutions.

  • To capture all above complexities and nonlinearities we use several proprietary optimization methodologies. We use nonlinear dynamic optimization implemented via mix-integer constrained programming for most analytics optimization problems. Problems with nonlinear constraints, such as banking balance sheet optimization under liquidity or capital constraints, which are ratios, use global evolutionary optimization algorithms.
