Fixed income portfolio management introduces modeling and reporting challenges often unaddressed by equity-oriented software. Years ago, fixed income portfolios were sufficiently managed using stacks of paper and years to maturity as the primary analytic measure. As complexity increased spreadsheet solutions evolved, but these proved unwieldy and unscalable. Today’s fixed income reporting requirements may encompass everything from portfolio analysis, to operational integration, to client presentations, transactions reporting, total return, and even compliance-related issues.
Investortools’ software addresses the demands of long and short maturity fixed income portfolios, and support tasks such as credit analysis and risk attribution.
total return contribution, both “by bond” and within your portfolio structures

realized and unrealized gain / loss analysis at the tax-lot level
portfolio presentations for oversight boards, clients, and prospective clients

How many software firms have served their industry for a quarter century - or existed for half that time? For over 25 years, Investortools has focused on the unique challenges facing fixed income portfolio managers. Our products and innovations have often preceded the needs of fixed income managers. But we are not sitting still. Much of the technology our clients expect tomorrow is in design and development today.
More than software
Investortools’ business philosophy goes way beyond delivered software. There are several key Investortools advantages:
We are committed to addressing the specific support needs of each of our clients. Each client has its own client relationship manager (CRM), who knows a client’s users and periodically travels to the client site.
Typically users must adapt to a vendor’s software. In contrast, Investortools’ software can be adapted to our clients’ existing processes. This can be accomplished through our existing flexible reporting and graphing engine, or through customization of the software itself. Customization can be as minor as adding a data field, to extensive projects involving legacy system replacement.
We don’t just install our products and leave a phone number for tech support. We offer continual and unlimited product training at no cost. We will provide this at your site with your Investortools CRM, with your salesperson, or with one of our topic-specific experts – whatever is most appropriate for your situation.
