Stock Style Allocation

Style allocation is a concise view of a portfolio’s growth/blend/value and large/mid/small cap positioning, based on Morningstar’s style box. To display this view, click on Allocation -> Stock Style




The weights in the portfolio’s style box are calculated by aggregating the style box weights of the portfolio’s constituents (funds, ETFs, stocks).

For research, you may drill-down each category to uncover the contributions of each investment. You may also compare the style views of two portfolios.

The style view is optional in the PDF report. To add this view to the report, select Add Content -> Stock style

Asset History Import

If an asset is not available in Kwanti’s database and there is no satisfactory proxy to represent it, you can upload its history into Portfolio Lab.


Portfolio Lab imports the asset’s history from an Excel CSV file that either contains:

  • a list of dates and prices
  • a list of dates and returns

They can be monthly, weekly or daily records. Once imported, all of Portfolio Lab analytics and charts are available and the asset can be used in portfolios.


After import, you can edit the history by clicking on the pencil icon as shown above.


Asset proxies

Assets that are not available in Kwanti’s database – for example, individual bonds – can be assigned a proxy. The proxy can be any index, stock, ETF, or fund.


If there is no satisfactory choice for the proxy (for example, the asset does not correlate to any index or listed investment), an alternative is to upload the asset’s history of prices/returns.
