For every Asset Management Company (AMC), the primary intention behind generating factsheets is to give a gist of the Fund/Strategy’s performance to Investors, Potential clients and distributors. In Portfolio Management Services, as much as Registered Investment Advisors (RIAs) take care of the fund allocation in different PMS Strategies, it is important for investors to know if and where their money is working its magic.
The needs for Factsheet generation arose based on the difficulties faced by the Investors when it came to keeping a tab on all the numbers and minor details of their Investments. In a broad sense, a Factsheet is a consolidation of all the details with regards to a PMS Strategies’ performance that an investor should be aware of on a periodic basis.
When it comes to factsheets, each AMC has its own style and way of presenting. While some AMCs publish it monthly, others limit it to a quarterly, semi-annual, or annual basis. The style of the factsheets also varies from a simple one-pager to a comprehensive factsheet running along with several pages.
At Fintuple, we wanted to introduce a standard to this system and hence the Fintuple Standardized factsheets were created. These factsheets are generated and made available for all PMS strategies across all AMCs on our platform as a single- Page document with key details that are relevant to the stakeholders involved, in an easy to understand, interactive format. This innovation not only helped financial advisors and distributors using our platform to compare the various Strategies at a glance, but also provided the AMCs that didn’t have enough manpower to publish factsheets on a monthly basis, with the opportunity to do so. Thus, enabling investors to easily keep a tab on the Strategies they have invested in.
Over time, we came across a few fast-growing AMCs which were ready to adopt the latest technology innovations to redefine how customers interact with them. In the process, they are looking to go digital which makes the process more efficient, brings automation, reduces errors and better resource utilization to send out their monthly factsheets. One of our growing partner AMCs, Emkay Investment Managers, acquired a large audience over time and the manual process of generating factsheets monthly, felt like an arduous task. When presented with the idea of automating this process, Emkay Capital jumped on this opportunity to enhance their investors experience with innovative experience and increase their internal efficiencies by accessing various analytics around the same.
