Data Management Highlights
The Eagle data management solution consists of a number of modules, including a reference data management workflow and consolidation tool, a core data hub/warehouse, and information delivery tools. One new development in the V8.0 release of Eagle’s data management solution is an Eagle Data Mart that enables clients to leverage the unique capabilities and power of the data management solution to generate information for access using third-party report and query tools. Eagle’s highly anticipated process manager represents the next level of easy-to-use, rules-based automation for as-of processing in data management and performance measurement workflows. It also enables users to define and monitor system events at a granular level, to view the complete layout of their daily events cycle and to report on run time and feed result statistics.
Performance Measurement Highlights
The Eagle Performance Suite consists of portfolio performance, GIPS composite management, performance attribution and mutual fund performance. With the V8.0 release, Eagle offers a performance toolkit that reduces the time and effort of implementing the solution by providing clients with a standardized configuration of end-to-end loading, calculations, attribution analysis and reporting. The increasing complexity of Eagle’s clients’ analysis requirements also led to several functional enhancements that include:
• Expanded equity attribution to support additional algorithms;
• Further streamlined support for fee schedules and carveouts; and
• Expanded mutual fund performance reporting capabilities, allowing for the display of numerous statistics related to the performance calculation.
Investment Accounting Highlights
Accounting enhancements include expanded support for new instruments developed in the evolving financial markets. With V8.0, Eagle’s accounting solution now provides robust accounting for inflation-protected securities that have been issued by several countries. Eagle’s accounting system expanded its processing of derivatives, with considerable functionality added to support credit default swaps. In addition, the Eagle accounting solution accepts vendor-provided cash flows to be used for calculating yields for amortization on fixed income positions. Corporate action and fixed income processing were also enhanced to streamline processing and improve efficiency.
