"With the hedge fund market expected to grow steadily over the next five years, the demand for easy-to-use, packaged investment management solutions will increase," said David Palten, Eagle president and chief executive officer. "By continuously enhancing Eagle PT-Plus, we are offering the hedge fund and alternative investment community a comprehensive solution to handle its current partnership and tax accounting needs, as well as future initiatives."
Locally installed or hosted via Eagle ACCESS, the firmâs ASP service, Eagle PT-Plus handles all aspects of a participant recordkeeping system, including income allocations, fee calculations, and tax processing. The new version also supports a variety of fund structures and, when integrated with an investment accounting system, offers alternative investment firms an integrated architecture. Because of its flexible architecture, Eagle PT-Plus can be used by funds, other than alternative investments, that require specialized income allocations and fee processing.
This latest release of the software offers several key new features, including:

By offering both tax lot layering and aggregate tax methodologies, Eagle offers a comprehensive partnership and tax accounting solution to meet the changing needs of todayâs global firms.
Integration with the Eagle Performance: By integrating PT-Plus with the Eagle Performance calculation engine, firms can calculate investor level returns, taking into consideration significant cash flow processing.
