EXPORTING CORE DATA NEW MODULE TO PURCHASE
The previous version of eXimius calculated financial data based on the underlying transactions brought in to the system. This data could be consumed via our reporting framework or web services. Version 5.5.4 now contains a new module that allows the export of core system data as XML files. These files typically can be used in third-party reporting tools to create client reports. The core data module exports the following data elements: 01 Portfolio Values 02 Holdings03 Performance figures04 Attribution05 Performance Results06 Allocations
MARGIN PRODUCTS NEW MODULE TO PURCHASE
In today’s portfolios, investments are made using multiple instrument types. The conventional strategies still invest largely in cash products like stocks, fixed income and mutual funds. An increasing number of investors, however, are using margin products like futures, CFDs, and FX to leverage or hedge their portfolios. With the new version of eXimius, we’ve extended the ability to manage both cash and margin products in numerous ways. Margin products are now fully supported in portfolio valuations, allocation compare, and rebalancing. Exposure values—Leverage Factors— are used in these components. With this change, for example, it’s now possible to manage a portfolio holding stocks and a short future position to hedge the risk of market changes.
INVESTMENT PROPOSAL ENHANCED FEATURE
You can now create investment proposals for prospective clients within eXimius. The workflow-based process kicks off with the invested and target amounts and horizon. Using a questionnaire, you can calculate the risk profile of the new investments. From this profile, eXimius proposes a target list defined specifically for that profile. To complete the workflow, a proposal is generated in PDF format that can be used in future communications with the prospect.
PORTAL NEW FEATURE
The eXimius portal is a white-labeled website that can be used to give your clients online insights into their portfolio. Because it is white-labeled, you can customise the portal with your company logo, identity, and style. The client can see his or her portfolio positions, transactions and performance, and also has the ability to generate a PDF report. With version 5.5.4, you can also use authentication on the portal. The existing username/password authentication is still an option as well. When the authentication is used, your clients must receive a token to use in the logon process.
ALGORITHM ORDERS NEW FEATURE
The new eXimius version introduces a feature that gives users better control over how orders are placed into the market. Some markets have limited liquidity. As a result, the price of a stock, for example, is subject to the volume of the order. Even for markets with sufficient liquidity, a large order might impact the price of the instrument. To get around this limitation, you can now specify an algorithm like VWAP, Iceberg, etc. These algorithms are sent together with the order information to an external OMS or straight to the exchange.
