PME implementation includes all data management requirements – extracts, transformations, interfaces, database updates.

PME supports any return calculation: daily, true time-weighted, modified Dietz, BAI and IRR.

PME Key Features include:

  • Custom System Components
  • Scalable Web Based Architecture
  • Selectable Calculation Methodology
  • Performance specific data correction facility
  • Multiple Return Types
  • Batch and online recalculation capability
  • Flexible Parameterized Reporting
