Outlier Dashboards

Below is a mock dashboard report, which ranks stress themes by surprise (i. e., outlier move as measured in standard deviation). Useful reports will have drill down capability, and the ability to view outlier activity in different dimensions such as theme, country, industry, and asset class (Table 2).
