The new tool offers improved customization, efficiency and visualization for complex asset allocators.
As part of its initiative to deliver customizable solutions, Northern Trust (Nasdaq: NTRS) has launched an enhanced liquidity management data tool in its Front Office Solutions platform. The web-based tool gives asset owners with significant allocations to private market assets better control over their liquidity through unified and customized reporting.
The new web-based Liquidity Management module offers users a comprehensive view of their portfolio's liquidity based on several factors, including private equity real-time data and expected cash flows as well as complex hedge fund contractual terms and conditions.
“Private market exposure is growing at an increasingly fast pace across allocators and managing liquidity has for far too long been an onerous and manual process,” said John Turney, head of Northern Trust Front Office Solutions. “This tool is central to our focus on supporting the Whole Office by delivering solutions that are customizable and visual to give complex asset owners a holistic view of their liquid and alternative asset classes.”
The tool allows asset owners to monitor and assess their cash flow pacing across private and public markets through a custom time horizon feature, removing the burdensome manual steps that investors often take. Adding a visual element, the tool gives users the ability to view their cash flow pacing through bar charts, providing an enhanced perspective for evaluating highly complex liquidity scenarios.
Front Office Solutions is an integrated, cloud-based service and data platform that enables investment offices to view data from disparate sources across all asset classes in one central repository. It serves complex asset owners including foundations, endowments, family offices, pensions and outsourced chief investment officers (OCIOs) with the data they need, in the format they need it, enabling them to make informed investment decisions that help them achieve their strategies.
