» World'Vest Base, Inc. and Quantal International, Inc. announce Quant-WVB
Philippe O. Piette Jr., World’Vest Base’s CEO, said, "This is an exciting product and a perfect complement to the WVB fundamental data. All of the measures are derived from Quantal’s risk estimates for global equities. The basic risk estimates are stocks’ conditional factor exposures and volatilities that are updated daily and from which a conditional variance-covariance matrix for the stocks is constructed. We selected the Dow Jones Total Market Index as the relevant benchmark for the stocks Global Beta and Country Beta. It gives users professional and comprehensive measures at an affordable price. Quantal is one of only two firms who have the capability to provide this comprehensive data set. "
