The Entity Assets page lists all asset holdings under a selected entity along with their respective property values. Many clients utilize this page to verify the holdings are included in the positions file. The Entity Assets page is relatively simple but can be a very effective tool if used properly.
Where to Find the Entity Assets Page
Listed below are the steps a client must take to reach the Entity Assets page for a respective Entity.
1. Click the “Portfolios and Entities” under the “Portfolio and Entities” dropdown located in the upper right-hand corner of the page.
2. Once the entity of interest is determined, click the “Assets on…” under the “Last Data Column” located towards the right of the page.
When completing Step 2, it is important to keep in mind that the entity level will display every asset in each portfolio of that entity, while the portfolio level will only display the assets for that portfolio.
Searching Assets and Filtering Properties
Once on the Entity Assets page, you can search for holdings by using any of the text boxes at the top of some columns. These are AssetId, AssetName, AssetClass, ISIN, IssuerId, and Issuer Name.
Similarly, these can also be used to filter results. For example, if you wanted to look at ADR’s under a specific issuer, you would type “ADR” in the AssetClass text box and “IssuerXYZ” in the IssuerName text box.
Filtering can be taken one step further by removing certain columns altogether to get a refined list of properties displayed. This can be done by locating “Select Columns” on the bottom left-hand side of the page, clicking the icon, and then selecting which columns you’d like to remain in view.
Aggregation Structures, Look Throughs, and Changed Positions
When looking at the Entity Assets page, you’ll see “Aggregation structure” in bold with a dropdown menu beside it. As you may have guessed, this is a way to filter the holdings by a specific aggregation structure.
Located directly to the right of “Aggregation structure”, there’s an “Include look-throughs” check-box. By checking this box, all look-throughs will be added to the list. The table is organized in a way where each underlying asset will be listed directly under the parent asset.
Located directly to the right of “ Include look-throughs”, you will see another check-box, “Only show changed positions”. By checking this box, the holdings will be filtered down to only show holdings that have had a change since the previous file upload.
Some of the value cells will be white, some will be orange, and some will be blue. Any cell in white indicates the value has not changed since the previous upload, orange indicates there has been a change since the previous upload, and blue indicates the value is a result of an override.
When hovering the mouse over an orange cell, the previous value will show. When hovering over a blue cell, the original value will show.
