20090125448 | SYSTEM, METHOD AND PROGRAM FOR AGENCY COST ESTIMATION - A method, system and computer program product for forecasting the transaction cost of a portfolio trade execution that may be applied to any given trading strategy or an optimal trading strategy that minimizes transaction costs. The system accepts user-defined input variables from customers and generates a transaction cost estimation report based on those variables. Two models are utilized: discretionary and non-discretionary. A specific transaction cost estimation and optimization is performed that model the transaction costs of a specific trade execution based on the user's trading profile and market variables. | 05-14-2009 |

20090281963 | Fair Value Model Based System, Method, and Computer Program Product for Valuing Foreign-Based Securities in a Mutual Fund - A system and method for determining fair value prices of financial securities of international markets includes steps of selecting a universe of securities of a particular international market, computing overnight returns of each security in the selected universe over a predetermined past period of time, selecting at least one return factor of a domestic financial market from a plurality of return factors, computing, for each selected return factor, the return factor's daily return over said predetermined past period of time, calculating, for each selected return factor, a return factor coefficient for each security in the selected universe by performing a time series regression to obtain the contribution of each return factor's return to the security's overnight return, and storing each calculated return factor coefficient in a data file. | 11-12-2009 |

20090299889 | System and Method for Estimating Transaction Costs Related to Trading a Security - A method for creating a peer group database includes a step of collecting security transaction data for a preselected period of time, for a plurality of investment institutions. The transaction data includes identity of securities being traded, transaction order sizes, execution prices and execution times. The transaction data is grouped into a plurality of orders. A plurality of cost benchmarks are calculated for each of the orders. Transaction costs are estimated for each investment institution relative to the cost benchmarks. The data is stored. | 12-03-2009 |

20110004567 | FACTOR RISK MODEL BASED SYSTEM, METHOD, AND COMPUTER PROGRAM PRODUCT FOR GENERATING RISK FORECASTS - A computerized method for generating risk forecasts is provided. A set of securities is selected. A set of risk factors is selected. The risk factor returns a determined. A risk factor covariance matrix and an idiosyncratic variance matrix are constructed. For each risk factor, a factor loading coefficient is determined for each selected security. The risk factor covariance matrix is projected into a future forecast. The idiosyncratic variance matrix is projected into a future forecast. The factor loading coefficients, the future forecast of the risk factor covariance matrix, and the future forecast of the idiosyncratic variance matrix can be used to determine a forecast of the variance-covariance matrix for the selected securities. | 01-06-2011 |

20110196773 | SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR EVALUATING SECURITY TRADING TRANSACTION COSTS - A system and method for comparing investment transaction costs of institution peers includes database and a processor coupled to a network. The processor may be configured receive, via the network, security transaction data of investment institutions, which included data for traded securities, transaction order sizes, execution prices, peer identities and timestamps. The processor is further capable of grouping transaction data into groups of orders, calculating order costs and environmental factors for each order, and calculating a peer's average order cost within each group. The data are stored in the database so that it may be retrieved and displayed. | 08-11-2011 |

20110258107 | SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR ESTIMATING AND OPTIMIZING TRANSACTION COSTS - A method and system for forecasting the transaction cost of a portfolio trade execution that may be applied to any given trade strategy or an optimal trade strategy that minimizes transaction costs. In preferred embodiments, a server comprises one or more computers that act as an automated forecaster whereby it accepts user-defined input variables from customers and generates a transaction cost estimation report based on those variables. The server is programmed with specific transaction cost estimation and optimization algorithms that model the transaction costs of a specific trade execution based on the user's trading profile and market variables. | 10-20-2011 |
