Fund management is becoming an increasingly challenging task. From the Chief Financial Officer on down, the pains of many fund managers have a common theme. Using QuickBooks and then using Excel to do the required quarterly consolidations. This can take from 10’s to 100’s of hours and is an error prone process. The use of multiple dashboard systems, having to deal with different period ends as well as multi-currency scenarios all add up to a very time consuming task that is fraught with danger when done manually. This is the reality of today’s world. The graphic below is a stark illustration of the pressures managers face.
Fund managers of today have an immediate need to quickly produce or have access to accurate consolidated financial and management reports. The Chief Financial Officers and Chief Investment Officers of fund management organizations need the ability to drilldown into the data in order to help them make good decisions quickly and thereby grow and drive their investment business. They need full Multi-Entity and Multi-Currency support. They need access to integrated management and financial reports, across their holding and operating companies…essentially they need continuous consolidation. And in more cases than not, they need it in minutes, not in 10’s or 100’s of hours.
