Investment in Our Solutions: The 19.1 Releases Open the Door 

With spring, comes the first of two releases planned for 2019 across many of SS&C Advent’s solutions. These releases are the culmination of the last six months of dedicated work by a diverse internal team, with enhancements selected and prioritized in collaboration with our clients. We’re excited to share a few highlights with you.

The Geneva Family

Geneva®, relied upon by more than 375 firms globally, ranging from hedge funds and fund administrators to global asset managers, pension funds, and private equity firms, incorporates new accounting and reporting functionality in this release.

Highlights include:

  • Added flexibility to swap processing and related finance calculations
  • Automating calculations for bond amortization to the earliest call date for GAAP compliance
  • Waterfall-style performance fees and management fees based on AUM
  • Notably, we have strengthened Geneva’s bank debt accounting functionality in response to increased growth and activity in the market. Geneva is one of the few solutions in the industry that supports bank debt investments right alongside all other asset classes, including derivatives

 

With the combination of robust rule writing capabilities and the ability to link to non-Geneva data sources, Advent Lumis   now brings a higher level of automation to your daily processes providing state of the art data governance and exception management capabilities to ensure the integrity of data flowing into and out of Geneva. With actionable dashboards, operational oversight and compliance is at your fingertips.  

The APX Suite

This release of the APX Suite, serving over 1,000 asset and wealth managers globally, continues to deliver on a number of integration and technology enhancements to improve the seamless, automated flow of data among its components: Advent Portfolio Exchange® (APX), Moxy®, Advent Rules Manager®, and Advent Genesis. Clients will see the same improvement in front-to-back process flows, whether they have some or all of the suite deployed onsite or in the cloud, via Advent Outsourcing Services. 

Highlights include:

  • Enhancing support for Trade Programs enabling the front office to efficiently implement the programs across portfolios
  • Dynamic realized gain/loss calculations for proposed orders to ensure greater decision making support, using Advent Genesis
  • Enhanced filtering with portfolio access rights, hiding all references to portfolios where users have no access in Advent Rules Manager
  • Continuous enrichment to the near real-time synchronization between APX and Moxy, enabling firms to benefit both in operations and trading
  • Faster data imports and translations and new public APIs for portfolio data in APX
