Asset Control Expands Tapmaster’s Instrument and Securities Coverage

Asset Control has enhanced its data management product Tapmaster by introducing support for portfolios, swaps and money market derivatives, as well as support for Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID) reporting data.

Phil Lynch, Asset Control’s president and chief executive officer, says: “The need to provide support for a firm’s own portfolio data is becoming increasingly important to buy side institutions.” Tapmaster’s support of portfolio data includes ownership, security and cash positions over time, transactions and associated trader information, distributions, and accounting valuations. The new release also includes enhancements to currency exchange deals and derivative contracts, interest rate derivative contracts, forward rate agreements, swaps contracts, swaptions contracts and credit default swaps.

The vendor has also added data connectivity to Princeton Financial Systems’ PAM portfolio accounting system and allowed the capture of real-time tick data from the Reuters pricing data network. This connectivity to PAM gives Tapmaster the ability to provide security master, market and corporate actions data directly to the PAM system for use in portfolio management and valuation, as well as allowing the system to store portfolio position and trade information created in PAM for portfolio analysis and reporting.

TAPMaster now captures securities price data from the Reuters network using the Reuters 3000 Feed Manager, which allows firms to capture prices in real-time from all asset types from hundreds of worldwide pricing sources and share that data throughout the firm in a consistent manner, according to the vendor.

Asset Control has also been recertified by Microsoft for the third consecutive year as a Gold Certified partner.
