Functionality relates to revaluating securities

This menu is visible only if your user role has a permission to revaluate securities.

The Revaluate all securities menu items allow you to recalculate the discount factors for a specific time period on all your securities with the base type DISCOUNT and other relevant information. Discount factors on a security are never calculated before the beginning of the position or after the maturity date, and all calculations are done until yesterday. Revaluating securities will always trigger a report recalculation to update the effect of the new values to your portfolios - report recalculation will affect all portfolios that contain the securities that receive a new valuation. More details on the options available in the menu through Valuation of forward cashflows.

The Import menu allows you to import data into the system: select the data you want to import and import your file in the Import window.
