Iress Portfolio System
Portfolio System is multi-currency portfolio management software, suitable for simple portfolios, right through to those more sophisticated. It allows you to construct, review, analyse and configure client portfolios and supports all investment types. Administration, performance analysis, tax impact analysis, asset allocation assessment and transaction management are made simple with Portfolio System.
From compliance management to modelling, this software allows for faster reporting, quick access to tax, valuation and performance, plus market data and approved product lists. Portfolio System is a single, reliable piece of software offering end-to end support of client portfolio management.
A system of accounts and sub-portfolios makes separating and categorising client investments easy. You can view, search and manage positions on holdings across a range of clients.
Modelling and construction
Portfolios are viewed and constructed at the account or sub-portfolio level, and flexible modelling tools allow you to construct portfolios:
• manually based on specific holdings.
• based on model targets, consisting of a selection of securities with a recommended weighting for each security.
Manually manage, or automatically schedule corporate actions to run across client holdings. Comprehensive and automatically generated corporate action templates support all common events, across a wide range of global equity markets, or alternatively, you can build your own. Corporate actions are applied to individual or multiple portfolios and can be run and reversed any number of times.
Analyse the current portfolio, or related entities’ performance over a user-defined period, and compare to market benchmarks. Performance detail is available in both internal rate of return (IRR), or GIPS compliant and daily time-weighted rate of return (TWRR). Calculations can be measured at an individual holding, account or sub-portfolio level, as well as at many other market segments.
Access both unrealised and realised capital gains details, using a range of methods including the availability of optimised rules for trade match jurisdictions. Period-end income tax reporting is also available and is generated using tax-related data from transactions.
Generate comprehensive and consolidated portfolio reports for any number of client-related entities and sub-portfolios. Reporting covers all areas of valuation, such as transactions, tax, performance, compliance and asset allocation.
Calculate and manage all of your ongoing client fees, with access to a comprehensive portfolio fee engine. Funds under management fees, as well as transaction-based fees, are supported by both end- of-period and weighted average calculations.
You can initiate and send orders directly to brokers from within the interface with both pre- and post- trade compliance checks. Orders are monitored in real-time, allowing you to see the market as your broker sees it. You can also view orders that a broker creates via trading interfaces on your behalf or at the request of the client.
Pre- and post-trade monitoring of client portfolios and orders ensure investments are in line with both agreed client, and organisational limits.
