Key Updates in this release

1

New Portfolio Analytics Functions

In this release we have added very advanced portfolio analytics functions. All these functions take a portfolio as an input and then return results. The results can be a number or result data table. 

A portfolio is essentially a range of cells that has the stocks in your portfolio and the corresponding proportion of stocks like shown below. 

The total of all the weights in the portfolio should need to be 100% for these functions to work. These portfolio functions should work for all US & Canadian stocks and ETFs.

The  range B3:C11 which is highlighted in the image below is what is the portfolio input. 

We have created a completely new category for portfolio functions. You should see this in the Excel’s functions browser. 

list of portfolio functions

In all these new functions a portfolio range is the first and the only required input. The default time period we use for all our calculations is 12 month and all the results are calculated with monthly returns. The number of periods can be modified by providing an optional integer value after the portfolio like shown below.

=monthlyReturns(“Portfolio Range”,18) will return monthly returns for 18 months.

We would recommend downloading the presentation for these functions and further details around calculations and inputs to these functions.

Please also review some of these blog posts we have put together to explain the functions and associated calculations
