Thanks to this already-available solution, clients can tailor their portfolios by choosing the features and variables that better fit their interests and preferences.

This tool, intended for institutional clients, significantly decreases operational risks and the time to market of algorithm-based products. It also represents another step in the advancement of BBVA’s 'Do it yourself' (DIY) agenda. The bank is an adviser that provides guidance and support to help clients make the best decisions, while granting them the ability and capacity to manage their own products.
