ATLAS prides itself on true flexibility and timely delivery of NAV calculations and financial statements on a daily, weekly, monthly, or quarterly basis.

Fund Strategies & Portfolios

Furthermore, ATLAS’s portfolio module supports all strategies including L/S equities, fixed income, Fund of Funds, options, futures, commodities, swaps, private placements, and CFD's. All trades, cash, and positions are reconciled and processed by automated trade uploads either through direct links or ftp connections with prime brokers and custodians. We partner with Bloomberg, Reuters, and have access to other pricing sources such as IDC for independent pricing.

Partnership Accounting

For partnership accounting ATLAS offers partnership allocation and comprehensive partner performance measurement with the capability to maintain an individual trial balance for each partner in addition to an aggregate trial balance for the overall Limited Partnership (LP), tying each partner's assets directly to the underlying balance sheets and P&L performance.

Atlas’s EMP Matrix includes tools such as a cost-sharing infrastructure, integrated back office, fund structuring & formation, and access to an established network of premier service providers.
