About Us

Venn by Two Sigma is a portfolio analytics platform for asset owners, asset managers, and advisors to quickly perform advanced analysis and better understand sources of risk and return across multiple asset classes.

Our Story

Two Sigma consistently heard from clients that existing risk tools failed to address the unique needs of allocators and managers of multi-asset portfolios. Manual solutions like Excel lacked systematization, and other portfolio risk tools did not suit.

Venn was created in response to such client demands for greater insight into their factor exposures as they approached asset allocation and outside manager evaluation decisions.

Since 2017, Venn has applied Two Sigma’s expertise in research, data science, and technology to modernize the analytics experience for institutional investors, helping them embrace a quantitative approach to multi-asset portfolio risk and investment decision making in one turnkey platform.

The Evolution of Risk Management Platforms

We are seeing a shift from a traditional, asset-class based allocation to a more risk-based approach to asset allocation. Investors are increasingly looking at factors as critical to meeting objectives such as reducing risk, generating returns, and increasing diversification.
