FA Fund Management 1.8 - Release notes

Released: July 15, 2022

FA Fund Management 1.8 provides new functionality for creating and managing funds. The NAV calculation and acceptance is made more verbose: you can check the process status in case there are problems. In the fund reporting, new indicators depending on benchmark are now available.

Creating and managing funds

FA Fund Management 1.8 introduces the new Fund wizard to create and manage funds. You can now go through all the steps in setting up a new fund in the FA Fund Management app without a need to navigate through different settings and windows in FA Back. The new Fund wizard makes it easy for you to set up a new fund - Fund wizard contains only the fields that are relevant for funds and it guides you through the relevant selections, such as Basic info, NAV schedules, Fee structure, Fund reporting, Order execution, and so on.


The fund wizard guides you through all relevant selections related to creating or modifying a fund. Fields are named intuitively, and you can find more detailed explanations behind question marks.

You can modify fund portfolios in FA Fund Management, also the ones created in FA Back. After creating a new fund, it is easy to add share classes in the same application.

Monitoring and canceling NAV processes

FA Fund Management 1.8 allows you to follow calculation and acceptance status to determine if they are progressing as they should. You can monitor these processes through the information button in the Fund details pane.


If your NAV calculation or NAV acceptance are taking too long and you think the processing might be stuck, you can now cancel the calculation or acceptance process in the Fund details pane. The system will automatically rollback your fund to the previous stage.

  • Cancelling NAV calculation deletes the calculated data and sets your fund back to status "Pending NAV".

  • Cancelling NAV acceptance rollbacks your fund back to status "Calculated".

Calculation, acceptance, and rollback errors shown in NAV status

NAV status view now shows if there were any errors during NAV calculation, acceptance and rollback. If there were errors, you can see the red info icon in the list of funds. Hover your mouse over the icon to see more details about the error.
