FundGuard: Creating a Unified Book of Record for Investment Managers

State Street Alpha has partnered with FundGuard, a leading provider of fund and investment accounting systems and software, to co-engineer a solution specifically for State Street Alpha and our clients. It’s designed from the ground up to streamline your accounting processes and get the right information to the right stakeholders at the right time.
Supporting the Whole Investment Operation

An enterprise fund and investment accounting solution should be connected directly to the information sources that capture trading, pricing and corporate actions data to support the wide range of functions that rely on it: portfolio management, client, tax and regulatory reporting, risk management, and trade life cycle compliance.

However, many asset managers still rely on a patchwork of systems and processes to feed the same data to different areas of the business.

This is further complicated by the variety of ways in which inputs are generated. Some will be digital and cloud-based, while others originate from older, on-premise legacy systems serviced by asset managers’ internal operations teams. These systems are difficult to maintain and integrate, hampering a firm’s ability to scale up and innovate. Fortunately, there is a solution to this problem. What if you could get outputs for all of your teams from one solution? What if you could access a single digital book of record for trading, performance and portfolio management data? What if your system could seamlessly connect with all the disparate data sources required by your fund and investment accounting engine?


This is where State Street Alpha‘s partnership with FundGuard can transform your asset management operations. The integration of FundGuard with State Street’s Alpha Data Platform (ADP) enables broad coverage of asset classes and security types – giving your front office timelier perspectives on their holdings, exposures and investable cash. A seamless integration with the front office and back office ultimately speeds up the flow of data, ensuring pricing and trading data is immediately available for portfolio management, risk analysis, and client and regulatory reporting.
