The site to offer detailed fund information, including pricing, performance, holdings, country breakdowns and weightings versus benchmarks, among other data
Putnam Investments has launched a new web site, to support its nine Putnam Global Sector Funds, the suite of mutual funds to target stocks in sectors across the entire MSCI World Index.
Reportedly, the new web site allows investors and their advisors to tap into Putnam’s views and commentary from sector analysts. It has said that it provides streaming video, analyst Q&As, and stock research stories. The site features will rotate to provide coverage of specific funds and analysts, and offer insight on the timely issues. It includes the features such as direct access to prospectuses, reports, fact sheets and biographical information about the portfolio managers. In addition, the site offers detailed fund information, including pricing, performance, holdings, country breakdowns and weightings versus benchmarks, among other data.
The company further stated that additional site features currently in development include live interactive chats with Putnam staff and the Putnam global sector portfolio tool, which tool will allow advisors to visualize the sector funds in client portfolios, providing detailed analytics to assist in allocation decisions. With this tool, users can see the characteristics of a portfolio consisting of the entire suite of nine funds and compare it with an investment in the MSCI World Index. They can also test the impact of scenarios based on macroeconomic factors, and experiment with adjusting the portfolio under these scenarios.
