To prove alpha, funds need to calculate the price of every position in the portfolio. Pricing involves a great deal of time-consuming work, from data collection to rules application to pricing tests. For more exotic asset classes, highly illiquid securities, or mark to model securities, pricing can be a much more complicated endeavor.
IVP Price Master provides an end-to-end pricing automation solution. It efficiently retrieves data from vendors and brokers, applies waterfall pricing rules, and ensures prices meet threshold checks. This helps funds apply valuation policies consistently and deliver prices that executives, investors, and auditors can review with confidence.
