Featured Releases

COVID-19 STRESS SCENARIO – HYPOTHETICAL P&L IMPACT ON PORTFOLIO
IN SIMILAR MARKET CONDITIONS

Covid risk

We have introduced a new historical scenario for the COVID-19 sell-off of 2020. As with other historical scenarios available on the Vidrio platform, the objective is to estimate the PnL impact on a fund or portfolio should it encounter similar market conditions as the ones experienced during times of stress. As always, this scenario is available for time series risk and position level risk.

NEW TRANSACTION TYPE: DIVIDEND TRANSACTION

To accommodate increasing use of dividends as part of multi asset class fund structures, a new transaction type, Dividend, has been added to the Vidrio platform.
Dividend Transaction can be used to record a dividend issued by a fund to a portfolio as well as a dividend issued by a portfolio to an investor.

When there is a dividend, the NAV of the investment will decrease by the dividend amount without impacting the performance of the investment.

NEW CLIENT PORTFOLIO CAPABILITIES NOW AVAILABLE

We have released new Client Portfolio capabilities that enable Vidrio users to see an aggregated view of each of their individual client’s investments across all their portfolio products.

This new enhancement provides a unified view of an individual portfolio client’s investment transactions, related valuations, etc. Client Portfolios include all of the core analytics and functionality :

• Analytics (performance, attribution, allocations, etc.)
• Statistics (Standard Deviation, Alpha, Beta, Sharpe Ratio, etc.)
• Exposure and Risk (Time Series based & Positions based)
• Daily Account Valuation
• Portfolio Planning, Order Management, Cash Management, FX Management
• Workflows, Reports, Guidelines, etc.


NEW GRANULAR GUIDELINES ON SHARE CLASSES

Account Level Guidelines
Users can now query or filter for actual share classes to identify specific parameters that they are responsible for monitoring.

Portfolio Position Level Guidelines
This is a new capability for Vidrio users who are managing portfolios and may have investment clients with explicit requests for a particular fund or position to be added to their portfolio on certain conditions. Users can now keep track of these positions on behalf of their investment clients.

ENHANCED COMMUNICATIONS SYSTEM: EMAIL CONNECTIVITY

Email

Users can now send internal/external emails directly from the Vidrio platform via a single, designated platform account (e.g., notification@yourcompany.com). The new feature enhances users' ability to share meeting and call notes, reports and other authorized communications from within Vidrio to internal and external stakeholders who might not have direct platform access.
