Sophis has announced the launch of VALUE 4.1, its investment management solution. The culmination of more than 10 years’ development, the company says that the solution provides a single integrated investment platform for asset managers with complete cross-asset coverage ranging from equities, fixed income, foreign exchange (FX), commodities and energy to all types of derivatives, over-the-counter (OTC) contracts and structured products.
Designed to make navigating the challenges posed by cross-asset portfolio management significantly easier, this release incorporates key developments in investment decision support, order origination and compliance management as well as powerful new reporting capabilities.
Denise Valentine, senior analyst at Aite Group, said: “Spending priorities remain at a conservative level for asset managers and hedge fund firms. However, they are keen to gain momentum in time for the recovery, and so investment management systems that improve people and internal processes will remain central to budget decisions.”
The new compliance module in VALUE 4.1 provides a single framework for regulatory compliance incorporating internal, risk management and client specific rules. It provides the ability to perform pre-trade compliance checks at any step of the investment process and to schedule post trade compliance sessions. Its flexible administration system has an intuitive rules builder, enabling users to implement a compliance programme quickly and easily. Alert workflows are matched to the compliance programme to warn about breaches and enable efficient exception handling.
iReporting is a fully integrated client reporting application, designed to meet high volume, industrialised reporting processes, as well as ad hoc report requirements. It provides a powerful and flexible data visualisation tool along with a large set of pre-canned reports. Functionality includes analytics consolidation, results storage and drill down capabilities.
