A large OCIO manager needed a technology solution that could address the Form ADV requirement to provide derivatives exposure for investments made via Separately Managed Accounts (SMAs) based on day-over-day data. The client was receiving SMA transparency positions, but their challenge was how to manage the Security Master data for the individual investments in that transparency. Their existing Data Warehouse and Security Master solutions were set up to process fund investments on a monthly basis, even though these positions ran the gamut of direct investment types and needed to be processed daily. In addition, the client now needed to get pricing data for those investments daily. The client chose ACA's NorthPoint Data Management Solutions' Data Warehouse and Security Master modules to solve these challenges.
