Consolidated Accounting (with 100% of property operations)

  • We support a broad range of accounting methods, including full consolidation

  • Using the financial data submitted by property managers and once property financial results have been reviewed, our proprietary roll-up engine populates different levels or entities within a fund structure up to and including consolidating results at the fund level

  • Levels include asset, venture, investment and portfolio — allowing us the capability to report at each of these levels. Additional levels can be added regardless of the fund structure

  • Our roll-up engine has a unique ability to roll data to the side and convert to different accounting methods for the same portfolio of assets utilizing logic-based rules. This allows us to maintain multiple sets of books (where necessary) for a fund and its investments from the original transmissions submitted by property managers
