To address the nuanced investment reporting needs of insurance companies and private wealth investors, Clearwater Analytics, a provider of Web-based reporting and analytics for corporate treasury departments, announced two new offerings—Insurance Analytics and Private Wealth Analytics.

Each solution harnesses Clearwater’s scalable technology platform to provide visibility and transparency across multiple portfolios, asset classes, security types and currencies. Investors have access to a view of their entire investment portfolio to monitor risk exposure, compliance violations, financial accounting statements and investment performance. Investors have the ability to drill down to the tax lot level information underlying the reporting and analytics to view specific security characteristics. Clearwater’s platform provides investors with the technology tools and the business intelligence they need to:

• Automate inefficient manual processes and free-up resources

• Identify and assess risk exposure across a broad range of criteria, including issuer, security type and sector

• Proactively track compliance against investment policies to identify violations

• Implement consistent assumptions across portfolios to generate accurate financial reports

• Track investment performance against custom-defined benchmarks to measure investment manager results
