Profit Allocation Rule

Profit Allocation Rule

A rule is an essential component to the workflow in ATAS. To manage complex and dynamic revenue splits; ATAS will link a rule to these following properties:

  • Clients
  • Regions
  • Timeframes
  • Traders

Allocation Options

In the Commission Allocation View, profit allocation rule(s) can be set up. ATAS enables the users to setup percentage split of commission to house and traders under the rule(s). Afterwards, this rule can be mapped to clients and later to trades.

These rules can be applied at a specific timeframe. In addition, revenue splits can be amended retrospectively – recalculating P&L with updated information in the process.

A user can apply an existing rule to client(s) in Client View. In this page, the user can select the preferred fund code, region and percentage of CSA fee. Several rules and splits can be mapped to multiple clients and traders in different periods. Detailed information about CSA can be viewed in the CSA view.

Filtering an Allocation Rule

To easily search a specific rule, a user can filter rules based on properties such as fund code, region, or others. For example, to find rules with permission to trade only in United States, the user needs to find rules where region is USD. Hence, the user can filter ‘REGN’ column to show items with value that is equal to USD.

  • Testimonial

    Nectar Capital undertook a broad anlaysis of what was currently available in the market place and we selected Arbor FS for a number of reasons. Primarily, being an Alpha generative organisation we liked Arbor’s ability to present our portfolio in several ways, including fully customisable views for each user. Such functionality allows our portfolio managers to drill down on relevant exposures in the portfolio and helps them make optimal investment decisions.
    From an operations perspective Arbor automates many of our processes and procedures, therefore reduces the time and cost of our middle and back-office undertakings. We liked the platform’s ability to pull data from our Custodian and highlight differences that may exist. We liked the ability to extract historic trade information in a meaningful manner, and we liked the ability to adjust many of the variables in the system to our internal preferences. Additionally the interaction and file upload to our Administrator is fully automated.
    Finally, we believed (and still believe) Arbor to be a client focused business with a client focused structure. These are business oriented people helping us to facilitate our own successful business.
