Investment Fund Management Reports

The quality of the investment management reports is a crucial aspect in attracting and maintaining clients. Investors want to gain a clear understanding of the investment goal of a portfolio cost, risk and risk levels as well as performance metrics and holdings details.

Depending on the type of business investors will also need to have detailed information about the fees in dollars that they owe in their annual or semi-annual shareholder report. In the case of mutual funds, this might include a breakdown of total fees paid by each individual shareholder and an explanation of how the fees were allocated to the performance of the portfolio.

However, providing this information as part of the overall performance report can be a challenge for a lot of companies. For one thing, the majority of investors keep their money in the broker-dealers’ omnibus accounts. In order to provide personalized fee information, a brokerdealer will need to establish interfaces with the owners of these omnibus accounts to calculate and distribute the data to each shareholder.
