First Rate has over 80 report objects that can be combined into a report package. These schedules range from basic allocation and return information like ‘Cowboy Math’ all the way to risk statistics, attribution and contribution reports. This helps advisors create the right package of information for each investor. Better yet, within our partnerships, we have a tiered solution that helps you right-size the reporting to the investor. The investor may only need a Total Portfolio return, or if you’ve been discussing diversification into different styles of assets you might want a single page report of style performance within a statement. From there, the sky is the limit, with trend analysis, basic risk and advanced risk reporting and then attribution, both domestic and multi-currency. Assigning the right tier of reporting to each account’s needs helps you ‘right-size’ your service and adjust when necessary.
