Fund Risk Management/Analysis

Fund Management SystemUsing the features detailed in position keeping, our portfolio management system is able to perform fund risk management and analysis for both real time and historical trades/positions, including these features:

  • Exposure (Net & Gross)
  • Exposure Beta / Delta Adjusted
  • Liquidity
  • Market Capitalization
  • Post Trade Compliance
  • Stop / Loss Indicators
  • Exposure (Net & Gross)

Exposure (net) represents the position exposure after offsetting long and short exposures in a portfolio or fund, e.g. net long exposure, net short exposure.

Exposure (gross) represents the position exposure after offsetting the single positions between the same currency pairs, e.g. long and short exposure with different counterparties.

Exposure Beta / Delta Adjusted

Exposure (beta) Beta corrected exposure (net) is calculated based on the weighted average position between all of your positions in the portfolio or fund.

Exposure Delta Adjusted in a portfolio management system uses Net exposure (from position keeping) between other positions in the same currency pairs as the reference level. It represents the new level of exposure after offsetting the individual positions of a ‘base’ portfolio/fund.


Liquidity level in a fund management system calculates the average exposure (net) with a predetermined threshold to determine whether the exposure in the fund (or portfolio) is liquid or illiquid. This allows the user to make sure that a certain fund is liquid enough to utilize it.

Market Capitalization

Market capitalization (also know as market cap) in a fund management system determines the exposure based on market capitalization, which helps the user or portfolio manager determine the exposure of the fund to small and mid cap stocks easily and quickly.

Post-Trade Compliance

Post trade compliance in a portfolio management system helps to integrate with and automate best-in-class third party systems. Users can do fund analysis and compliance with a single solution, dramatically reducing costs and paperwork associated with having multiple software products.

With a third party system, you can automate the processing of post-trade compliance that includes position keeping such as allocation reporting, position revaluation, depreciation and rebalancing.

Stop / Loss Indicators

Stop / loss indicators in a portfolio management system is the easiest solution for trade management. Unlike the solution of majority counterparts, it can be configured with a user-defined threshold and can be expanded to set multiple thresholds. Therefore, you can react more quickly and reduce the potential loss.
