Investment Accounting

Transaction processing and accounting for all portfolio investments.


  • Tracks and accounts for all investments, with ability to calculate accruals, cash flows, positions, and P&L at a lot level
  • Supports Broadly Syndicated Loans, Private Debt Loans & Bonds, Corporate & Muni Bonds (including Zero Coupon & PIKs), MBS/ABS and other Factored bonds, CLO Debt, Equity, and FX Spots & Forwards, with new asset types being added regularly
  • Utilizes dual record accounting which provides natural cross-checks, preventing things like “hanging receivables” that go unnoticed, resulting in real world lost revenue
  • Provides more accurate FX calculations and wider support for FX hedging strategies than some other loan accounting solutions in the market
  • Offers Knowledge Date as a natural part of the system architecture, which allows a user to understand what the historical data looks like as if you are reporting from the past (without applying current adjustments to past data) or present (with applying current adjustments)
  • Employs open architecture, making it easier to get data in/out of the system (e.g. RESTful web-based APIs)
  • Offers faster report generation by pre-calculating and storing key data points at time of entry instead of during report generation
  • Allows calculation of earned discount/expensed premium at the lot level under the EIR method
  • Integrates flexible reporting directly into the application
Available for CLO/Loan Managers, Private Debt Managers, Commercial Bankers, Fixed Income Managers and Alternative Asset Managers.
