New Services

Version 1.3 adds seven new services to Proton’s Wellness and Annuity suites:

  1. POST /portfolio_optimization_score : Assess the relative health of a portfolio, as compared to a mean-variance optimized portfolio. The comparison is done on the basis of return-to-risk ratio, producing a score on a 0 to 100 scale in which 100 represents the optimized portfolio.
  2. POST /diversification_score : Assess the diversification of a portfolio by comparing the standard deviation of the portfolio to the weighted average standard deviation of its individual positions. This diversification ratio ranges from 0 to 1, with 1 indicating no diversification (e.g. portfolio holdings are perfectly correlated) and 0 indicating complete diversification (e.g. portfolio holdings are perfectly non-correlated). The ratio is subtracted from 1 and mapped on a 0 to 100 scale.
  3. POST /annuity_calculator/annuity_amount : A calculator to help solve for the annuity amount that can be successfully attained, given the other details provided. This tool works well for investors who want to maximize future annuity payments.
  4. POST /annuity_calculator/initial_balance : A calculator to help solve for the initial balance that an investor needs in order to satisfy the annuity details provided. This tools works well for investors who have liquid assets available and a defined annuity target.
  5. POST /annuity_calculator/deposit_amount : A calculator to help solve for the recurring amount to be contributed over the accumulation horizon, in order to satisfy the annuity details provided. This tool works well for investors who have ongoing income to contribute toward a future annuity.
  6. POST /annuity_calculator/decumulation_horizon : A calculator to help solve for the time horizon over which annuity payments will persist, based on the details provided. This tool works well for investors who want to assess how long a given annuity will last.
  7. POST /annuity_calculator/accumulation_horizon : A calculator to help solve for the accumulation horizon (i.e. the time period until annuity payments begin) that is needed in order to satisfy the annuity details provided. This tool works well for investors who want to see the effects of account growth to achieve a desired annuity outcome.
