Platform Advances: iQ Test, Enhanced Dashboards, Events Feed


A platform release on May 11th introduced new capabilities to the Universe Analytics module, enhanced visualization and on-screen analysis by updating our existing dashboards, and made signing up for Burgiss events easier.


Getting closer to full integration of Universe Analytics, this release adds the popular iQ Test, which taps into the results from our universe of over 9,000 research-quality funds.

The iQ Test is a quantitative due diligence tool that allows for an direct comparison of a manager’s track record to a user-specified peer group. Simply set filters to drive fund selection criteria, set parameters to designate how results are calculated and then input a values representing a manager’s track record—then hit run.

The instant result shows a radar chart backed by an exportable table with percentile rankings for each measure against the peer group you designed. It’s easy to see that the greater the coverage of the chart, the better the fund has performed against its peers.


Dashboards get a lift with enhanced grouping options for the Holdings-Based Exposure Over Time, allowing grouping and drill-down through three levels of industry and geography.


A new Upcoming Events section on the home page allows users can stay up to date on all things Burgiss. Check the feed every time you log in to find out about upcoming research webinars, product training sessions, conferences, and more.

Stay tuned for more development to come. We are completely dedicated to delivering on the initiatives presented in our 2019 Platform Roadmap.
