NorthPoint Data Management Solutions
This case study details how a large OCIO management firm and a large managed account platform firm, each with a large number of clients that invests in hedge funds through separately managed accounts (SMA), implemented ACA's NorthPoint Data Management Solutions Data Warehouse and Security Master modules to address the need for drill-through transparency into the constiutent investments of these funds.
This case study explains how ACA's NorthPoint Platform helped a growing investment management firm with approximately $19 billion in assets under management solve business challenges related to managing mulitple disparate software systems and home-grown applications, as well as manual operational processes.
ACA Technology Solutions, a division of ACA Compliance Group and a leading provider of investment management and regulatory compliance technology solutions, today announced the completely redesigned and web-based Data Warehouse, Data Browser, and Security Master for the NorthPoint Platform. Additional redesigned and web-based components for the NorthPoint Platform will be released later this year.
Key features and benefits include:
In data management, Knowledge Date — also called “As At” date functionality — refers to the ability to store the same data point based on the information available at a certain point in time.
For example, your firm’s accounting system may show a portfolio’s Year To Date performance as 10% on February 1, but then as 11% on February 4 after an adjustment is booked. In this case, without a Knowledge Date-enabled system, firms may find it challenging to answer the question, “What was the year to date performance for Portfolio X as of February 1”?
