What is the FundLifeCycle Monitoring all about?

The purpose of Fund Life Cycle Oversight is to give all Management Companies a view of all the activities done on their funds by themselves and/or by their providers.
Management Companies will have views on :

  • Registration/Distribution matrix,
  • NAV’s loaded,
  • Regulatory Reports
  • Their Library,
  • The different Disseminations,
  • And finally on the Order Management Services



This document provides “a Useful Tip”, on some views, which will lead you to different reports available on the Dashboard Module on your e-file light application.

A Dashboard report exists for most of the views in your Dashboard module. Those reports are easy to interpret.


Dashboard

General Information

The “Dashboard” is the entrance screen showing the following five main parts of your activities :

  • Funds universe 
This view represents the number of active funds/sub-funds/share classes you are working on.
  • E-file filing 
This view represents the number of all documents sent to each of the authorities in the last 12 months.
  • Your top distribution countries 
This view lists the countries with the highest distribution of your funds. The list contains the top 10 (if there are 10 or more countries where your funds are distributed).
  • Documents loaded in library 
This view represents the number of documents loaded in Fundsquare library for the corresponding funds.
  • Providers 
This view lists all your providers who are using Fundsquare services and the number of corresponding funds they act on. The different roles the provider has are indicated :
  • Reporter : Entity which can publish NAV’s and sends Reportings (O, U, S and TPT)
  • Transfer Agent – Fundsquare routing hub: Entity which uses Fundsquare order routing system.
  • All other workflows (FATCA sending, KIID update, …) : Entity that can create and transmit the corresponding documents for the funds of the management company (possible also for ALL the funds where the management company is also library owner)

You @ Fundsquare

General Information

The view “You @ Fundsquare” shows your contractual situation, in other words : the subscribed services.
50 .png
The details of the services can be found in our “Product catalog” pdf document available on : www.fundsquare.net under menu “Services”, section “Presentation”.

Registration/Distribution Heatmap

General information

The “Registration/Distribution” heatmap gives a quick global oversight of your shares in different possible status (to register, registered, distributed, …) and their quantity.
60 .png
In the example above, we can see that the funds of the ManCo are mostly distributed in Western Europe but also a few other countries (Peru, Chile, South Korea, …).

Interact with the map

By moving the mouse over the top left corner, you have different options available to interact with the map:

61 .png

Magnifying glass : To search a country or any part of the world (Asia, Europe, Luxembourg, …)
+ and - : To zoom in/out.
Home (house): To return to the initial view

62 .png

Zoom / Selection options:

  • Zoom on a rectangle area
  • Select countries in a rectangle
  • Select countries in a circle
  • Select countries with a free pattern

It is possible to navigate on the map by holding a click and navigate with the mouse.

Apply filters

The following filters can be applied :

  • Fund Name : This filter is useful when dealing with a large number of funds to quickly select a subset of them, or to visualize the status for a specific fund.

Example : you want to select only SIF funds and all your specialized funds contain the word “SIF”.

  • Status : 5 status about the registration and 3 status about the distribution exist. Each fund has a registration status and a distribution status. By default, the distribution view is visible.


63 .png

In the example above, we can see that the ManCo stopped a lot of distribution of shares in Greece.

NB : If several statuses are selected, the view will sum up the number of entries. For example, if the “registered” and “distributed” statuses are selected, all the share classes that have both status will be counted twice.

Useful tip : To have the details of all the classes registered and distributed per country, you can go to the Dashboard and select either the report 2_3-Export csv of the Registration Matrix either report 2_4-Export excel of the Registration Matrix

Fund distribution by country

General information

The view “Fund distribution by country” illustrates how many share classes are distributed by fund by country.

70 .png

This view can help the ManCo to realize where some funds / share classes are distributed (or not distributed). For example, the fund 8831 seems to be distributed in most countries in Europe, and we saw in the “Registration/Distribution Trend” view that Liechtenstein was one of the ManCo’s hot country. The ManCo can therefore wonder if they shouldn’t also distribute the shares of the fund 8831 in Liechtenstein.

Useful tip : To have the details of all the classes registered and distributed per country, you can go to the Dashboard and select either the report 2_3-Export csv of the Registration Matrix either report 2_4-Export excel of the Registration Matrix

Registration/Distribution Trend

General information

The view “Registration/Distribution Trend” indicates a global trend on how many shares have reached the different possible status (to register, registered, distributed, …) .

80 .png

Example : In the view “Registration/Distribution Map”, we saw that Luxembourg and Switzerland were the two countries where the greatest number of share classes is distributed for the Management Company. In this view the timeperiod is now set to display last year only; we can see that, in the past year, Liechtenstein was the country were the greatest number of share classes have been distributed.

Useful tip : To have the details of all the classes registered and distributed per country, you can go to the Dashboard and select either the report 2_3-Export csv of the Registration Matrix either report 2_4-Export excel of the Registration Matrix

Share registration incoherence

General information

The view “Share registration incoherence” illustrates the registration issues of your funds in Fundsquare’s database.

90 .png

An incoherence is detected if share is distributed in a country but not registered : it means that this share is marked as “distributed” (D) in the matrix but has not as “registered” (R or RX). This either means that the share should not be distributed anymore in the country, or that the share should be logged as “registered” as well.

To check the list of ISINs impacted, you can apply a country filter first if necessary and then use the “Download” button to the check the extract in excel format.

Useful tip : you can also check this issue (classes distributed per country but not registered) going on the Dashboard and select the report 2_1-Incoherence between REG and DIST matrix (D and not R). In order to solve them, we propose you either to change these Distributed statuses by putting a DX or insert a Registration status (R)

NAV’s loaded – Hourly view (3 months)

General information

The “NAV’s loaded – Hourly view (3 months)” view represents the number of NAV’s received by Fundsquare for each fund at each hour of the day.

100 .png

In the example above, we can see that, for the “Fund 4209”, 62375 NAV’s have been loaded at 7 PM during the last 3 months.

Under the number of NAV’s received by hour, a cumulated view of the NAV’s received till the specific hour (from 0 am to the hour selected) is available in a lighter color.

Below that graph, a global view of all the NAV’s received for your funds is available (“Your funds”). This view gives a quick overlook of all the NAV’s loaded for your funds in the past 3 months.

NAV’s transmitted to Fundsquare – Details

General information

The “NAV’s transmitted to Fundsquare - Details” view represents the number of NAV’s received by Fundsquare for each share class every day.

110 .png

Apply filters

The following filters can be applied :

  • Fund Name : Useful when dealing with a large number of funds to quickly select a subset of them.
  • CSSF Fund Code : This code is given to a fund by the CSSF upon registration of the fund at the CSSF.
  • Sub-fund Name : Usually used after the Fund Name is selected, to make a quick subfilter.
  • ISIN : Useful to quickly search a specific share class.
  • Frequency : Useful to distinguish the expected delivery frequency. By default, “daily” funds are selected.
  • Last Month/Last 3 Months : With this option it is possible to either select the NAV received during the past month (31 days-to-date) or during the past 3 months-to-date.

Status

Six different types of entry exist :

  • Leftward pointing green filled triangle : this entry means that it is the first NAV received for the share class (same date as the launching date of the share class).


111 .png

  • Green filled square : this entry means that one NAV was expected that day (standard situation)


112 .png

  • Green star : this entry means that several NAV’s were received that day. If the NAV date is selected, it means that several NAV’s were received for the same value date. If the reception date is selected, it ould also mean that the NAV of different days were received on the same day.


406.PNG

  • Rightward pointing green filled triangle : this entry means that it is the last NAV received for the share class (same date as the end date of the share class).


114 .png

  • Rightward pointing empty triangle : this entry means that the NAV was received after the share lass was closed (this could most likely be a data quality issue or a case of liquidation).


115 .png

  • Leftward pointing empty triangle : NAV received before launch date : this entry means that the NAV was received before the share class was launched (this is a data quality issue).

NB : If this entry is an excuse (orange), this is most probably an excuse indicating “Waiting for initial subscription”. If this entry is missing (red), it means that there are excuses or prices missing between the constitution date and the date when the first NAV was received.
116 .png

117 .png

It is possible to filter on a specific entry type by clicking on the status in the legend (top right corner) and clicking on “keep only”.
118 .png

Exclude entries

It is also possible to exclude entries : specific dates, specific currencies, specific funds / sub-funds / share classes.
Example : you know that for your funds, the NAV is sent the day after its value date. Therefore, all value dates of your NAV will be missing today. Therefore you want to exclude today’s NAV’s in the view.

Regulatory reports

General information

The “Regulatory reports” view represents the percentage of different regulatory reports that were either sent on time, late or were not sent yet.

120 .png

Only the monthly O1.1/U1.1 and the yearly O4.1 are available so far in this detailed view. The table gives a periodic KPI (monthly for O1.1/U1.1, yearly for O4.1) for each fund and a global periodic KPI for all the funds your Fund Administrator(s) is/are working for. The table shows you all the active sub-funds. A global periodic Market KPI is also available to benchmark your performance against the market.

Apply filters

The following filters can be applied :

  • Sender : This filter is especially useful for Management Companies working with a lot of different Central Administrations.
  • Sending Date : This filter determines which reception date is used to determine if a report was sent on time or late : with the “First sending date”, the date of the first report sent is considered (even if a correction on this report is sent later); with the “Last sending date”, only the date of the last version of the report is considered.
  • Report Type : This filter is used to choose to visualize either the O1.1/U1.1 (“Monthly 1.1”) or the O4.1 (“Yearly 4.1”).

Line types

Four different information types exist :

  • On Time : This entry indicates that the report was sent on time (Before the 10th of the month for O1.1/U1.1 reports and before 10 days and 4 months after the reference date (end of accounting year) for O4.1 reports).
  • Late : This entry indicates that the report was received, but after the deadline indicated above.
  • Missing : This entry indicates that the report was not yet received.

Data history

For the O1.1/U1.1, reports received in the last 12 months-to-date are taken into account. For the O4.1, reports received in the last 4 years-to-date are taken into account.

Regulatory reports - Details

General information

The “Regulatory reports - Details” view represents, at sub-fund level, the percentage of different regulatory reports which were either sent on time, late or were not sent yet. These are the detail of the view of “Regulatory reports” explained in the chapter before.

  • Sender : This filter is especially useful for Management Companies working with a lot of different Central Administrations.
  • Sending Date : This filter determines which reception date is used to determine if a report was sent on time or late : with the “First sending date”, the date of the first report sent is considered (even if a correction on this report is sent later); with the “Last sending date”, only the date of the last version of the report is considered.
  • Report Type : This filter is used to choose to visualize either the O1.1/U1.1 (“Monthly 1.1”) or the O4.1 (“Yearly 4.1”).

Line types

  • On Time : This entry indicates that the report was sent on time (Before the 10th of the month for O1.1/U1.1 reports and before 10 days and 4 months after the reference date (end of accounting year) for O4.1 reports).
  • Late : This entry indicates that the report was received, but after the deadline indicated above.
  • Missing : This entry indicates that the report was not yet received.

Status

Six different types of entry exist :

  • Leftward pointing green filled triangle : this entry means that it is the first report expected/received for the sub-fund.


131 .png

  • Green filled square : this entry means that one report was expected/received for that period..


132 .png

  • Star : this entry means that several reports were received for that period. This is usually because corrections were necessary (e.g. because all the information were not available before the deadline).


133 .png

  • Rightward pointing filled triangle : this entry means that it is the last report expected/received for the sub-fund due to the closing of the sub-fund.


134 .png

  • Rightward pointing empty triangle : this entry means that the report was received after the sub-fund was closed.


135 .png

  • Leftward pointing empty triangle : this entry means that the report was received before the sub-fund was launched.

The donut displays the total of your ISIN’s created, split into a “routable” part – that can be used by distributors to send orders via our order routing platform – and a “non-routable” part – that can not be used within our order routing platform (yet).

The graph shows all instruments (Luxembourgish and Non-Luxembourgish) split in 2 parts :

  • OMS : instruments are part of the Order Management Service and are routable;
  • FSQ : all instruments created in our database which cannot be used for Order Routing (yet).
