Historically, data from the accounting system had limited use beyond the back office. It was batch processed at the close of each day and stored in an isolated database. It lacked the timeliness, context and accessibility necessary to support decision-making for the middle and front office.
But today’s leading accounting systems function in real- or near real-time, aggregate data from internal and external systems, and provide robust reporting capabilities. To that end, the right accounting system can serve as an effective IBOR solution for mid- or smaller-size firms without the significant resources to implement and support a complex, dedicated solution.
Our investment accounting solution, for instance, is built on a real-time platform and links to an open-architecture database with seamless connectivity to market and application data. Therefore, the resulting book of record is, at any given time, complete and accurate enough to provide a solid, contextual foundation for compliance, risk, modeling, trading and other functions outside of accounting.
The solution is a flexible, front-to-back software solution for complex, multi-layer unitized and non-unitized fund structures to manage the full lifecycle of the fund from Limited Partner allocations and communications to portfolio investment management.
Fund capital transactions, fees and income/expense, and investment details can be allocated to the investors, building out each investor’s capital account from these transactional details and allowing for immediate access to an investor’s position.
