In a new report, " ," Celent compares eleven applications offered by leading investment performance attribution vendors in the U.S. and Europe. This report is a companion to Celents earlier report, "The Science and Art of Performance Attribution for Investing, Servicing & Marketing," which provides market overview trends.

There are three types of investment performance attribution providers on the market today: portfolio management systems, performance specialists and analytics specialists.

This report focuses on the performance specialists and compares their solutions features and functionalities. A future report will cover the performance attribution modules of portfolio management systems.
