Capital Market Forecasting
Realistic estimates for return and risk are critical to the portfolio construction process. Develop sound capital market assumptions for return using CAPM, implied returns, Bayesian analysis (including Black-Litterman) and custom forecasts. Examine how assets behave during specific market environments, including periods marked by turbulence, on a before and after tax basis.
Too frequently, portfolio risk is oversimplified or misunderstood altogether. Windham’s risk management tools assist you in managing the complexities and true sources of portfolio risk so that you can develop portfolios that are based on realistic expectations and a deeper understanding of your risk exposures.

Factor analysis is a powerful technique that can identify and measure common sources of risk and return for managers, asset classes, and portfolios. Each factor represents an underlying exposure to the market. Factor analysis goes beyond the asset allocation to identify the underlying exposures to specific sources of risk and return.
Factor analysis can be used in a variety of applications including:
Understanding the drivers of manager risk and return
Understanding the differences between the factor allocation and the asset allocation
Explaining differences in returns across a universe of financial assets
Forecasting the expected value of asset returns
Stress testing asset class returns
Cash Flow Simulation
By simulating growth over time, Windham helps you evaluate the likelihood of meeting future goals and commitments. Windham’s cash flow simulations account for inflation and planned contributions and withdrawals. Projections are expressed in terms of total wealth and as an annuity.
Generate projections of future portfolio value
Measure the effects of inflation and periodic contributions or withdrawals
Quantify the likelihood of shortfall
