Collective Reporting

In order for a portfolio management tool to be effective, it is essential to thoroughly provide a collective understanding of how your portfolios are integrated, and how the overlap.  This information will allow you to analyze important questions:

   Collectively, am I over/under allocated?
   Am I diversified?
   Do I hold concentrated positions?
   Are the securities I own held in the right accounts – i.e., in deferred vs. taxable?

Investment Account Manager allows users to track an unlimited number of portfolios, each in its own unique database file - transactions are segregated by account.  This provides the user the ability to design portfolios by objective, and to track by individual investment account. 

From collective perspective, IAM allows the combination of portfolios on the program’s many reports.  This powerful ability keeps the user focused on how multiple investment accounts interrelate.

If for example, you are interested in an overall view of value, gains, projected income -the select IAM's Appraisal Report and select the portfolios to combine on the report. Or, if  you are interested in deeper understanding of the overall asset allocation of all of your holdings, you would select Investment Account Manager’s Asset Allocation Report and include all of your portfolios on that report using the report setup screen.  Within seconds, Investment Account Manager will produce a report showing your combined portfolios’ allocation by asset class (cash, bonds, stocks and other), by stock industry sector, and by stock size (large, medium or small cap).

Within Investment Account Manager:
1)   Select the report that is of interest to you from IAM’s Reports Menu. For instance, the Appraisal to see overall value, to review asset allocation, select that choice.

2)   On the Report Setup Window, select which portfolios you wish to include on the report. If you notice a Blue Hyperlink, click on it to provide information (i.e., allocation objectives for the combination – by asset type, size and or sector).

3)   Then, generate the report.
