Having the Accounting Module integrated into the Athena real-time portfolio and trading modules, Spark/Aura can strike a flash NAV at any point during the day. Instead of waiting hours for your administrator to publish an NAV, Athena can calculate a highly precise Flash NAV within minutes after the close.
Operational Risk Management
The Accounting Module allows investment managers to keep an independent second general ledger, or a “shadow book.” The shadow book is critical for investment managers who outsource their accounting function to a custodian or third party. The ability to reconcile against a shadow book ensures the records kept by the third party are as accurate as possible.
The Accounting Module offers a high degree of configurability to the fund accountant or operations manager at an investment management firm. This enables the operations manager to create custom reports that reflect the investment manager’s approach to categorizations and tagging of income, expenses, and cash flows.
The Accounting Module provides customizable, investor oriented reporting so managers can easily generate month-end investor reports. These reports include details such as asset allocation, risk, performance, cash flow, and tax impacts.
