Hypothetical backtests cannot substitute real documented performance. Since inception, LINKS have made the results of weekly valuation by asset class based on default LINKS models available to the clients.
Each dot on the graph shows valuation of Euro-government bonds in Mira ABM on a certain date, combined with the actual 18-month forward annualised total return of Bloomberg Barclays EuroAggregate Government Total Return index.
What our client say
“The fact that your model (MIRA) has a different methodology/approach than the standard stochastic ALM model, resulting in a different view of the world, definitely gives food for thought. In our previous ALM-study we used the standard model, but we were not very enthusiastic about that, as it did not add much value but was more of a confirmation of our assumptions. Your approach is absolutely more challenging and that is exactly what we are looking for. What also helps us a lot is LINKS analysis of the differences of underlying assumptions/views of the world, specifically the requirements that need to happen in order to “accept” our core assumptions.”

“This (Mira) is exactly what we would have developed internally if we had the time and resources. It helps to price assets consistently and does not ignore the underlying complexities. The fact that it also handles liabilities and is flexible enough to incorporate various pricing models for different asset classes is a big plus”
