Front Office

Comprehensive portfolio and risk management for alternative asset fund managers

Support Deal Origination, Credit Research, Trading and Direct Lending efforts

The Front Office focuses on deal structuring, investment research and selection, trading, risk and performance.  Timely and accurate information is paramount to making the right investment decisions.  Alternative asset managers need to be able to execute strategies across multiple asset classes.  Legacy systems are often siloed making viewing data across portfolios a laborious and time consuming task. Virtus Partners offers critical technology and managed services to support a wide variety of alternative assets and deal structures.  A Virtus implementation frees traders, portfolio managers, lenders and deal structurers to do what they do best.

Virtus can connect proprietary client or third party front office platforms to our Middle and Back Office solutions.  Essential information for supporting Front Office activities such as available cash, upcoming loan activity, trade settlement status, and more are all integrated and tailored to meet the specific needs of each client as part of a Virtus implementation.
