Axia Fund Management solution: New features and clients in Europe and the Middle East
Profile Software, an international financial solutions provider, today announced that Axia Fund Management solution, part of Axia’s omni-channel, web-based investment management platform, has been selected by several institutions in Europe (UK, France, Cyprus, etc.) and the Middle East (UAE, Qatar, etc.) and has a number of new features available for end-to-end asset management and fund administration operations.
By having to overcome challenges, such as the need to differentiate in a crowded marketplace with intense competition, fees compression and an increased regulatory scrutiny, Fund Management firms selected Axia so as to impact on the organisations’ bottom line by reducing costs, improving the offered and new services, while achieving an efficient, automated and risk-free operational environment.
Axia Fund Management incorporates features to holistically cover both asset management with advanced performance and risk analysis tools as well as administration of funds with multiple share classes in different currencies, investment types and strategies. It offers a set of in-built features like configurable dashboard panels, workflows and alerts, while being based on latest technology allows omni-device coverage (web, tablet, mobile) and complete 24/7 access to all functions.
Through Axia, fund managers automate the full trade workflow, with enhanced pre-trade compliance and post-trade limits according to the regulatory (e.g. UCITS) and fund’s specific compliance guidelines. The NAV module includes calculations of any amortised and/or accrued expense and fee (management, performance) both at the fund and/or class level, while the automatic reconciliation and accounting generation streamlines daily operations. A number of new interfaces are now available through SWIFT or proprietary formats (e.g. CACEIS, SOGEN) to perform data imports and reconciliations. Axia’s reporting capabilities cover multi-dimensional reporting needs for internal users (operations, compliance, middle and front office) and investors (fact sheets and statements). Additionally, a new set of asset classes (e.g. Swaps) have been incorporated in Axia, deriving from years of experience in treasury management domain.
The Axia Fund Management solution can be deployed according to the client’s preference and architectural strategy, either on premises or in private / public cloud infrastructure, such as Microsoft Azure. The Axia platform, apart from the Fund Management solution, provides holistic support for investment management operations, including Wealth Management, Robo-Advisory and Custody.
