    process compliance


CLIENT CHALLENGES
  • US-based leading alternative investment firm focused on credit and real estate investing and seeking consistent absolute returns for its clients
  • Client offers exposure to high-potential opportunities in diversified asset classes and was looking to build an extended team to support daily pricing and reconciliation. Team was required to work closely with the portfolio managers to price all investments and help with price reconciliation for management review and tracking portfolio strategies
  • Client was looking for help with standard daily risk reports including PowerBI dashboards for portfolio management groups
OUR APPROACH
  • We set up a team with the right skill sets to support the portfolio management team in the following areas:
  • Portfolio pricing for the financial instrument sector, such as equity, future, options, Treasury bonds, other bonds and loans
  • Portfolio reconciliation using in-house applications such as Geneva, IHS Markit and Bloomberg
  • Detailed daily reporting of new investments and P&L reporting
  • Maintaining and updating broker prices for different vendors in Geneva
  • Detailed monthly P&L analysis to identify high variances and justification of prices with the help of client-specified sources
  • Preparing monthly summary reports for the risk committee
  • Maintaining records of new portfolios and brokers
  • Preparing monthly presentations for the valuation committee and management team
  • Validating the prices of exchange-traded funds and US government and Treasury bonds, and spot and forward prices with the help of a macro-based analysis system that helps analyse price variance
  • Publishing daily risk metrics for structured credit, corporate credit and multi-asset portfolios
  • Maintaining risk data management, calibrations and client reporting for the client
  • Regulatory reporting support – Form PF, AIFMD calculated and reported market factor changes
  • Standard daily risk reports including PowerBI dashboards for portfolio management groups
IMPACT DELIVERED
  • Cost effective: access to highly skilled quants resources at affordable prices
  • Freeing up bandwidth: portfolio manager’s bandwidth was released to focus on higher-alpha-generating activities by us handling portfolio monitoring and maintenance tasks
  • Seamless strategy reporting support to portfolio managers: while our analysts initially handled time-consuming, recurring tasks, they quickly went on to assume the complete responsibility of reporting on all client strategies
  • On hand to help with ad hoc tasks so client could meet deadlines
