Asset Management Software

What is asset management software?

Asset management software enables professionals such as portfolio managers, chief investment officers, corporate treasurers, and accountants to analyze their institutional investments. By aggregating key information, asset management software helps investors easily understand their portfolio’s performance. Information including purchases, sales, dividends, capital gains, and price data are available in real-time to help investors understand their portfolio’s health and make fast decisions.

Asset management software also helps investment managers with time-consuming or difficult tasks by automating data aggregation, reconciliation, and reporting. Best-in-class solutions provide comprehensive, real-time views of assets under management.

The main benefits of asset management software can vary across industries. Here are some examples of how businesses might use asset management software:

  • Asset management firms use investment statements to provide their end client with a clear picture of their portfolios.
  • Insurance institutions use investment statements to understand portfolio risk, exposure, and compliance with regulatory standards.
  • Corporations use asset management software to aggregate their accounts into a single view, providing a single source of truth to view their positions while meeting their corporate goals for liquidity and yield.


Why is asset management software important?

Asset management software is increasingly important to help investors track their investments across all asset classes. This applies not only to traditional stocks, bonds, and mutual funds, but also to alternative investments such as real estate, private equity, or bank loans. The average organization has thousands of investments, across many accounting regimes, spanning various tax jurisdictions, that require multiple accounting bases. Managing these processes manually can take up a large amount of manpower and resources, but asset management software can make it easy.

Since asset management software automates reconciliation, it can compare data from various sources and identify any discrepancies. With automated aggregation, asset management software automatically downloads data from various sources and compiles it into a single report.

Additionally, asset management software is invaluable for regulatory compliance. The regulatory landscape is constantly evolving, with new regulations being passed every year. These regulations require transparency, and asset management software can help ensure teams have the resources they need to maintain compliance.

Furthermore, the evolving regulatory landscape puts a spotlight on transparency and reporting. It is essential for asset managers to have this sort of technology to keep track of the rapidly changing data flows.
