One complaint we frequently hear from UHNW individuals and family offices is that most portfolio management technology platforms only report on settlement date – not trade date. This methodology frustrates operations and investment teams alike because it makes it difficult to accurately report on liquidity, exposure and risk for the date the trade was made.
