Users can view all data associated with the entity by clicking through the properties, allocations, statistics and timeseries tabs.


Properties relate to static data associated with the fund, class or benchmark entity.

Example – this data can potentially be used in a Fund Details table embedded in a fund page or factsheet.


Allocations relate to data where there is a value linked to a label. The labels are generally different categories into which financial assets are divided e.g. Geographic regions, Industry sectors.

Example – a SectorBreakdown chart displays the percentage allocation per sector of a specific Fund.


Statistics relate to data where there is a value linked to a label but the label in this instance generally refers to a metric such as a fund performance or risk related statistic that is updated periodically.

Example – An Annual Performance table or an Income Distribution table displayed in the performance section of a fund page.


Timeseries relate to values associated with dates over a period of time.

Example – A Cumulative Performance chart tracking fund returns over a period of time.
