Setting Up - Aggregation
Below are steps to defining the hierarchical relationships between your firm’s portfolios and entities within the FundApps environment. For information pertaining to the conceptual framework behind FundApps aggregation functionality, or to learn how to create and edit portfolios/entities, please see these useful articles:
Creating Portfolios **recommended prior to defining portfolio/entity hierarchy
Accessing the aggregation tab
Login to your environment and navigate to the Portfolio menu (the folder icon located in the top right corner of your navigation bar).
Click into one of your existing portfolios, entities, or umbrellas. Select the Aggregations tab on the left side.
The Aggregation tab allows you to adjust the aggregation structure.
Through the drop-down menus on the aggregation tab users can create and alter the firm’s internal hierarchy structure, which is used to determine reporting obligations. FundApps offers two methods for providing your company’s corporate hierarchy info: UI and Import. Please select the method that best suits your firm depending on the complexity of the firm's structure.
* As portfolios, umbrellas, and entities can be part of multiple aggregations, clients are responsible for correctly choosing a parent for each.
UI Method (for simpler aggregation structures)
The UI Method is a manual method for linking existing portfolios, umbrellas, and entities to depict your firm’s internal hierarchy structure. For each entity, portfolio, and umbrella, access the Aggregation tab and select a parent entity in the drop-down menu.
Import Method (for complex aggregation structures)
In cases where it is not prudent to manually create aggregation structures, you can import a portfolio file with your aggregation instead. If your firm is utilising the Import Method, please complete the appropriate PortfolioId in each applicable column of the Portfolio Upload File Template and upload to FundApps via the Import button.
