Introduction

Asset Management and Fund Administration is an area where in-memory reporting tools can finally deliver full data transparency across the flow of funds.

Asset Management Transparency Analytics: Pomerol has successfully implemented a suite of applications to help analytics switch between Assets under Management and a hybrid view where intrafund flows are stripped out. In-memory reporting helps analysts switch between these views whilst still viewing common business dimensions like invested industries, funding source, client type etc.

Challenges

  • Little flexibility to implement Pomerol best practice/design approaches.
  • Hostile approach from client and little collaboration effort/interest in the beginning.
  • Difficulty with data validation, inconsistent sources to test against.

Solutions

  • Standardization of views/hierarchies/metrics.
  • High to low level data visualization approach and flow.
  • Step-by-step application build and knowledge transfer with client

Benefit

  • Transparency of assets under management with high level detail of capital flows.
  • Enhanced portfolio and capability analysis.
  • Simplified user experience and navigation.

Impacts

  • Improved client relationship/trust.
  • Streamlined analysis of gross, net managed, net sourced and investment positions.
  • Enhanced communication between fund manager, customer and business.
