One of the most tiresome activities for an investor is how to get a good search engine to find assets. All are limited, because they do not filter what we would like or provide only some figures. Of course, there are full products, but the price is only acceptable for companies or fund managers.

T-Advisor has developed the right tool: the Screener. This is a search engine to find all kind of assets except commodities and derivatives. There are several possibilities to find the asset you wish:

  • Name
  • Asset type: ETF, funds, stocks, bonds, indexes, cash and currencies
  • Market: up to 60 worldwide
  • Managers: up to 140 worldwide
  • Currency: the 35 most important and traded
  • Asset class: up to 18 different ones

Some other possibilities to sort are:

  • Our score: to find de best quality assets to invest
  • Performance: for different timeframes
  • Volatility: for 1 year
  • VaR: 95% for 1 year
  • Price range: with a minimum and maximum price.

Once you screen, you obtain a great deal of figures to analyse the assets. Apart from the common summary, with the closing price, the change and our score, you have separated tabs to watch the performance for different timeframes in a row, figures related to the asset risk (VaR, volatility and maximum drawdown) and trend signals charts. You can rank all categories from the highest and upside down. You can also click on every asset to obtain the T-Report, our in-depth report of every security in our platform.

We live in a world full of information, but it is useless, when it has no order or we cannot find what we need. The Screener is the solution for smart investors who bet for a self-directed model: an easy-to-use and quick search engine to find the assets you are looking for. The price: free. Why should investors pay for good relevant information to create their own portfolios?
