Investment Management

In today’s increasingly complex investment environment, data management suffers from being fractured at many asset management companies. Data is moved frequently from one system to another as mangers attempt to generate statistics, create reports, and manage their clients’ portfolios. This process is inefficient as it introduces errors, produces inconsistent results, and wastes valuable time. Because IMS resides on a central data store, data is consistent for every user.

IMS helps companies operate more efficiently, realize lower costs, and provide improved customer services. Users facilitate decision making via IMS’ integrated management tools, such as performance measurement, compliance and modeling, scenario analysis, and flexible reporting. Portfolio managers can focus on managing assets, not data. The operations and accounting departments can perform their functions without leaving the core application to run spreadsheets or reports.

Efficient Data Management:

  • Track almost any extraneous data item through a user-defined field definition system (like CRM systems).
  • Tracks all UDF history for almost all items: trades, Instruements portfolios, instruments, brokers, etc
  • Format query to report your exact needs by in-house non-programmers.
  • Create spreadsheet-like queries and export them to Word, Excel, PDF, and Crystal Reports
  • Avoid exporting or maintaining data in spreadsheets; improve efficiencies and reduce errors.

Data Integration:

  • Use XML to import or export almost any data item or to drive integration.
  • Configure IMS to import directly from spreadsheets or tab delimited files.
  • Send or receive data updates from clients, custodians, brokers, or external systems (EX trading).
  • Validation ensures that imported data is consistent and complete.
  • Integrate with many systems: brokers, custodians, General Ledger, CRM, and trading.
  • Ensure your system is properly updated with IMS’ powerful reconciliation engine.
