Welcome to the Flametree Technologies Wiki

Welcome

This website contains information about Flametree Technologies and our flagship fixed income attribution product, FIA.

The Flametree Wiki is now primarily intended as a convenient on-line reference manual for Flametree Attribution. For more general information, updates and news about the company, please visit our main website at http://www.flametree.global.

Overview

Attribution continues to be a leading topic in fixed income management. Attribution has enormous value in generating profits and increasing funds under management. Yet existing systems are expensive, difficult to use, and require major investments in time, money and expertise to set up and run.

FIA provides a powerful new approach to solving this problem using the least amount of data possible without compromising on depth of analytics or instrument coverage. Designed by a leading industry expert, FIA's capabilities equal or surpass those of any other attribution system in the marketplace.

Best of all – it’s straightforward to use. A typical first report takes less than 30 minutes to set up and run. FIA

The result is that FIA allows you to focus on your core portfolio management skills, instead of becoming bogged down in technology issues.

Not sure if FIA will meet your needs? Try the system out on-line for free for 30 days without obligation. Or contact us for a demonstration, using your portfolio data.

Why a wiki?

One of our guiding principles in writing FIA was to be as transparent as possible about how the system works. In particular, we wanted to avoid a 'black box' approach to analytics provision, where the specifics of a calculation or an algorithm are treated as a trade secret. Instead, we believe a policy of openness delivers the best possible results for our customers.

We have therefore taken the approach of putting all information about the system - including documentation, white papers, and technical specifications - online, rather than using a more traditional graphically oriented website. This also allows us to ensure that the system's documentation is always up to date.

For a more detailed description of the methodological basis of attribution, please refer to 'Attribution in Finance' by Andrew Colin, Pearsons/FT Press, 2016. This book was written concurrently with the development of FIA, and describes the approaches taken in detail.
