Portfolio management

FA's core is a transaction-based portfolio management system. Positions are calculated based on transactions. When saving a transaction, position data is updated and report data recalculation is triggered.

In this Portfolio Management section, all the relevant portfolio management components are introduced. In addition, this section describes helper tools for linked to these components.



The portfolio usually belongs to one customer. These system operators are called "contacts" in FA (customer, treasurer, custodian and others).

Portfolios and positions

The portfolio in FA is a basket of investments that can hold stocks, bonds, cash, and other items. These positions have amount (units), purchase price and market price. FA is a transaction-based system, so these positions are built on transactions that are recorded to the system.


In FA the term "security" refers to a financial instrument that has some monetary value.
