How it works

More investors are seeking the capability to act more directly and efficiently to manage unique risks, enhance returns, and customize portfolio exposures. Parametric CAPS offer a powerful means of scaling an existing investment team using our full-service implementation solutions:

Implementing a rules-based approach

Parametric’s philosophy is to provide a transparent, risk-controlled framework to increase portfolio efficiency and streamline management without the
introduction of active management risks.
Customizing and tailoring solutions

CAPS allow investors to create custom derivative, equity, or fixed income portfolios while addressing liquidity management, rebalancing, portfolio leverage,
and portable alpha.
Acting as an extension of your staff

Parametric can serve as an extension of your staff, offering guidance, expertise, and cost-effectiveness.


Investment staff will take time at the outset of the relationship—and on an ongoing basis—to understand the portfolio structure and goals of the investor and help identify ways to improve portfolio and operational efficiency


We work with each client to establish program guidelines and trading agreements, including listed and OTC facilities.

Ongoing monitoring

Parametric independently confirms, veries, and reconciles all trades; we manage all collateral flows; and we monitor associated custodial accounts. In addition, we provide daily reporting of all exposure positions, which can be expanded into fundwide exposure and risk analytics reporting if desired.

Addressing portfolio needs

Our solutions address needs across equities, fixed income, risk management, and the total portfolio.
