InvestOne Enterprise holds a leadership position within the global investment accounting segment, processing diverse assets across an array of fund types including hedge funds, pension funds, mutual funds, and specialized funds. In June of 2005, SunGard announced the re-branding of the product, previously called INVEST ONE, to reflect significant functional and technical enhancements being delivered as part of a multi-year development program launched in 2003. The product has also been adapted for the processing of alternative investments through a broad development effort which has addressed areas such as strategy reporting, additional derivatives functionality, and expanded reporting. Today, InvestOne is used by hedge fund managers and administrators alike for portfolio accounting and NAV reporting purposes.
Integrated with InvestOne Enterprise as part of SunGard's HedgePower platform, InvesTier supports the investor accounting and reporting needs of the alternative investment industry and serves customers ranging from leading global third-party administrators, domestic and off-shore hedge funds, funds of funds and other vehicles in North America, Europe and Asia. Recent development has enhanced product scalability in line with the forecasted growth of the highest volume processors in the industry. In 2006, SunGard will move to strengthen the product's position in Europe and offshore by completing development to meet the requirements for performance fee equalization.
