Its detailed analytics and modelling functionality enable fund managers to make better-informed decisions and mitigate reinvestment risk.
Through its sophisticated cash ladder, thinkFolio enables users to view future cash amounts across accounts, while taking into consideration bond and loan projected cash flows, redemptions, unsettled trades and other cash flows. These capabilities are complemented by sweep, roll, hedging and overlay tools, which have been specifically designed for managing short-duration instruments and FX exposures and strategies.
thinkFolio includes an integrated compliance engine that enables firms to perform pre- and post-trade checks to ensure compliance with customer guidelines, regulatory restrictions and inhouse mandates.

Users also have the ability to slice and dice portfolios according to any criteria and to perform what-if scenarios and rate shocking analysis.
Ease of integration
thinkFolio’s flexible and extensible architecture makes it is easy to integrate into a firm’s existing environment. The solution can be deployed as a comprehensive cross-asset-class portfolio modelling and order management system or used to address specific capability gaps in incumbent systems.
