About ADS

ADS is a division of Alpha Group (see information about Alpha below) which provides a market leading data solution to Asset & Wealth Management to address the challenge of 'messy data' that makes it hard for asset managers to get a clear view of the Client Book of Record – i.e. the economic data (flows, holdings, revenue & profit) about clients & fund investors.

Client Book of Record™ Industry Challenge

Asset & Wealth Managers still face substantial challenges – inconsistent, volatile transaction data volumes and a lack of master data - to establish a clear ongoing picture of client performance.

Industry leaders are building robust, scalable, cost effective enterprise Client Book of Record™ (CBOR) solutions to process to assign flows, holdings and revenue accurately to clients and underlying investors at an atomic or granular level.

ADS CBOR Solutions provides a best practice strategic solution for Asset Managers which matches transaction data to enterprise Master Data and provides daily CBOR outputs to consumer groups and business processes across the firm including: Finance, Sales, Marketing, Client Service, Compliance, Product Management and Front Office as well as external consumers including Investors and Regulators.
