Identify your relative value opportunities

Katana helps you identify the relative value opportunities in your portfolio or watchlist. Using advanced machine learning and the latest big data cloud technologies, Katana now analyses up to 200 million bond pairs over six different universes to show the relevant dislocations for the bonds in which you already have an interest and help you determine what looks relatively cheap and what is expensive. Our algorithm detects reverting dislocations with a 91% accuracy to reveal specific trade ideas and see broader trends earlier, faster and more precisely.

Katana quickly points out potential trade pairs with atypical spread differentials. You screen and filter for obvious reasons such as liquidity premium on one leg of a trade or negative credit events, but in the remaining set of opportunities we found some very worthwhile trades to execute.

"We found a trade idea in Katana and a day after we executed our trades the sell-side made the same recommendation in a research note"
