Geneva Project Description:


Geneva is an industry-leading portfolio accounting system licensed from Advent Software. It is
used by many Investment banking Systems in the Prime Brokerage space (Goldman Sachs,

Citigroup, Deutsche Bank, Bank of America, UBS, etc.) as well as many Fund Administrators
(Globeop, Fulcrum, Citibank AIS, HSBC, UBS, US Bank, etc.) to provide portfolio accounting
services to their clients. Geneva is also used directly by many Hedge Funds and Asset Managers.
The Geneva engine itself provides portfolio accounting services it calculates and values positions
& balances, maintains the cost basis of positions, and calculates profit & loss. It also calculates
dividend and coupon accruals, which are otherwise unavailable from core systems. Geneva offers a
powerful user interface and large suite of reports for internal purposes. It is noteworthy that while
Geneva maintains a permanent record of input reference data and transactions in its Advent
Global Area (AGA).
One of the main differences between Geneva and a traditional accounting system is that Geneva

derives all Positions, Cash Balances, and P&L information on the fly in memory. This will enable
to provide on demand report re-runs instead of having to wait for the next overnight batch. It does
this by reviewing all persistent data that falls within the report parameters selected at the time of
the request to calculate these values.
