JPMorgan Worldwide Securities Services, a leading global provider of custody and securities services, today announced the launch of its new VIEWS Portfolio Reporting technology, a best-in-class system for institutional investors to report custody, accounting and securities lending activities.
The new and enhanced JPMorgan VIEWS Portfolio Reporting technology gives executives, accounting and operations staff at banks, money management firms, mutual funds, insurance companies and pension funds one of the industry's most comprehensive, flexible and powerful sets of reporting, research and analytical tools.
The VIEWS Portfolio Reporting technology is the only system in the industry that enables clients to integrate and access data across multiple disciplines including custody, accounting, securities lending, and compliance. VIEWS also provides a link to performance measurement.
Users can easily search and access a database with extensive information across all of their holdings, trades, transactions activity, corporate actions and loans. Supporting this client-specific information is a full history of more than 4 million issues and multiple public indices. In addition, the system supports the creation of client-customizable investment ledger and cash forecasting reporting.
"We call it VIEWS because our clients can see any view of information they want at any time," said Neil Henderson, Senior Vice President and head of Securities Services for JPMorgan Worldwide Securities Services. "This is the best system in the industry today because it integrates the extensive depth and breadth of JPMorgan's global business knowledge with the most advanced technology available."
JPMorgan's new VIEWS reporting applications contain a powerful "Report Wizard", enabling clients to fully customize reports using the extensive field selection, filter, sort and output format capabilities. Clients will have greater access to data and a much more flexible report-writing capability, being able to choose and order data elements within reports. The system also offers a Report Scheduler that enables clients to run reports as frequently and regularly as desired, whether it be hourly, daily, weekly or monthly.
"Our clients expect and need to have the highest level of customization, flexibility, depth and speed and the new JPMorgan VIEWS provides all that and more," said John Galante, Chief Technology Officer for JPMorgan Worldwide Securities Services. "VIEWS Portfolio Reporting is incredibly user friendly. The system is simple and intuitive, enabling clients to easily and quickly get what they need, when they need it," Galante added.
With just a few clicks of a computer mouse, JPMorgan clients can:
- Access real-time intra-day, close-of-business and historical reporting with true-time series reference data
- Run, view, print or export reports simultaneously into a variety of formats
- Query the client reporting data hub for investigative research on portfolio activity
The enhanced JPMorgan VIEWS Portfolio Reporting also gives clients the ability to make sophisticated long range cash forecasts over an unlimited timeline. The system has sophisticated mathematical estimates of future payment streams on asset and mortgage-backed securities. In addition, clients can develop their own "chart of accounts" and investment ledger, so they can create on-demand interfaces to a local general ledger.
JPMorgan VIEWS is available via the JPMorgan ACCESS portal. The custody, accounting and securities lending reporting applications are the latest in a series of VIEWS technology innovations including JPMorgan E-Tax, JPMorgan Performance Measurement and related services such as JPMorgan's electronic distribution of corporate action materials.
