BLaadin is a financial market simulation tool aimed at private banking and wealth management professionals. It facilitates market
analysis and forecasting as well as making portfolio recommendations. In particular it asserts consistency between forecasts and recommendations.
BLaadin deals with asset class categories, risk profiles and model portfolios. Its core functionality is merging the market equilibrium portfolio with the user’s personal market view. This is done simultaneously and consistently for an arbitrary number of risk profiles.
BLaadin will suggest how to improve strategic positions as well as how to tactically allocate in accordance with the user’s view.
BLaadin incorporates machine learning techniques as an option to produce market views. Further it can suggest how to best complement an existing portfolio or how to implement a desired mix of assets using a limited set of predefined mandates.
BLaadin is of use to anyone responsible for producing market forecasts or portfolio recommendations tailored to a specific risk profile. In addition it can be valuable to managers of well diversified funds.
The Evaluate Results page has been significantly updated/redesigned. In addition it is now possible to configure which portfolio evaluation context is used to calculate return, risk and various key figures.
The password e-mails sent out by BLaadin have a tendency to get caught in spam filters. At the moment there’s no other solution than to advice users to check among their spam / junk mail.

The ojAlgo LP/QP/MIP solvers are designed for when you need a pure Java
solver for a smaller/simpler problem. Today the best commercial solvers (typically not written i Java) are very capable. ojAlgo can not compete with
them. On the other hand, in many cases, a commercial solver is total overkill. There's a huge set of use cases where something like ojAlgo is a
The ojAlgo solvers have been around for years - particularly the QP solver. It dates back to the very beginning of ojAlgo 10 years ago. Among the current test cases the only thing that doesn't work is semi continuous variables in MPS files/models. (This feature simply isn't supported at the moment.) Difficult MIP models is one area where a commercial solver will seriously outperform ojAlgo. ojAlgo can solve several cases from the Mixed Integer Problem Library (MIPLIB) but is significantly slower than commercial alternatives.
