Performance, Attribution, Reporting, & CRM

Performance: iPM Performance proactively monitors rates of return on multiple levels including total portfolio, asset classes, sectors, industries, securities and composites on a multi-currency basis.  

When rates of return fall out of a predetermined range, performance administrators are automatically alerted in real-time and provided with descriptive information to help them validate the return or determine any data discrepancies. The system then guides end users on how to correct data related errors if required.

In addition, iPM Performance proactively monitors all performance composites and alerts performance administrators if portfolios are in violation of the minimum asset level and large cash flow rules as required for GIPS compliance. The system also provides an automated interface for GIPS Certification.  In one click, users can extract all of the information necessary for a GIPS audit saving significant time and eliminating any manual manipulation of data which can be prone to error.

Reporting/ Attribution: iPM Epic also offers an optional Client Web Reporting Portal that provides for client statement reporting via the Internet.

The system also eliminates delays in report production and provides automated report scheduling capabilities, allowing users to build and maintain their own client statements based on available reports. Users can also generate their own customized client reports that integrate color, text and graphics, which can be added to the system’s report library. This flexible, Internet-enabled client reporting package allows users to automatically e-mail, fax or post reports directly to the web.

Moreover, APEX, which stands for Attribution and Performance Examiner, provides users with the unique ability to evaluate the performance of portfolios, asset classes, sectors, industries, analyst classifications and securities for any time period based on time-weighted rates of return. It also provides complete, transaction-based attribution against any benchmark, for any time period as well    as composite tracking and maintenance per GIPS standards.
