Asset Management - FX Cash Management in iRecs

Our client had been using iRecs for two years for market value reconciliation and daily cash reconciliation. These processes had delivered considerable benefit to the company allowing granular verification of all transaction flows on a day to day basis, and the verification of positions, prices and FX rates as required as part of a market value or NAV reconciliation. 

The fund mandate required all foreign currency earnings to be repatriated to the fund’s  domestic currency (usually USD); a common approach in emerging markets asset management. This placed the responsibility for executing foreign exchange trades with the custodian who would aggregate to sweep the currency balances of several transactions into one.
