Ledgex Systems, a provider of portfolio management solutions for fund of funds and multi-fund managers, has released the next generation of the Ledgex portfolio management platform.
Ledgex’s integrated suite delivers new liquidity management and manager research modules that give firms real-time visibility into their existing and proposed portfolio liquidity options while providing the research and analytics that support the manager selection process.
Effectively managing liquidity and reporting within investment portfolios has been a struggle for fund of funds, institutional investors, pensions and endowments. The Ledgex Liquidity module solves this challenge by providing an advanced liquidity modelling utility and reporting engine. The Ledgex Liquidity engine can generate all available options for accessing assets given certain conditions by processing each tranche and its respective trade characteristics with a manager’s liquidity terms. Ledgex can model more than 90 per cent of the manager liquidity terms used in the industry.
The new Ledgex Research module combines customer relationship management (CRM), document management and research management capabilities within a single system that removes silos and puts manager research in context with the entire portfolio management strategy. Ledgex Research allows investment professionals to efficiently manage, navigate and report on mass amounts of research data, while acting on the right information. The new module adapts to existing processes, from manager selection to manager monitoring, while providing a comprehensive tool to track firm-defined manager attributes, including exposures, allocation weighting, attribution, assets under management (AUM) and investor concentration.
“Increasingly complex fund and investment structures combined with changing regulations have dramatically shifted the liquidity and portfolio management requirements of fund of funds, institutional investors and other multi-fund managers,” says Brian Macallister, managing director at Ledgex Systems. “Ledgex addresses this new paradigm by delivering a single, comprehensive platform for portfolio management, liquidity management, manager research and investor relationship management.”
Ledgex Liquidity and Ledgex Research further enhance the existing Ledgex platform, which includes:
• Ledgex Portfolio Manager, a portfolio management system that allows managers to easily manage complex portfolio structures and look through these portfolios for exposure, performance and allocation weights;
• Ledgex Workbench, a front office decision support tool for managing projected capital activity and fund activity and evaluating the impact that these decisions have on a portfolio; and
• Ledgex Investor Relations, a tool designed specifically for managing communications, capital movements, meetings and client interactions in a centralised system that brings organisation to the investor relationship management process.
