Welcome to Data Agent’s Form PF Portal

DATA AGENT Announces Global Form PF Reporting Service

Are you prepared?

The SEC’s Form PF is a new, onerous 42 page form required to be filed by SEC registered investment advisers with over $150 million in gross private fund assets under management (“AUM”), either annually or quarterly, depending on the size and type of private fund adviser. The compliance phase-in starts as early as June 15th, 2012. Form PF will require the adviser to report on a wide range of data including strategy, asset classes, VaR, beneficial ownership, counterparty credit exposure, leverage, performance, ASC 820 Levels, and much more! See Data Agent’s Form PF White Paper  for more detail.

Data Agent’s Global PF Reporting Service will provide the following functions:

Data Extraction, Transformation and Loading (“ETL”):

Data is extracted from the various sources required to complete the form, including fund administrators, prime brokers and the investment adviser’s internal systems. Since 2003, Data Agent has been extracting data from dozens of sources and generating complex customized reporting for large institutional investment advisers. Data Agent’s pre-built data loaders and defined procedures to scope, define and debug data ETL are critical component of our service.

Data Mart:

A data mart is created with unified data architecture, including Form PF specific categorization, and a security master. The underlying data loaded into the Form PF reporting platform can be reviewed, tied out and adjusted if necessary, with an audit trail created along the way.

E-Filing:

Once completed, your Form PF can be automatically filed by you to the FINRA system.

Key Benefits:

  • Data Analytics: All of the required Form PF calculations are performed, including VaR.
  • Form PF Reporting: A secure, web based Form PF front-end is populated with the completed Form, including the following features:
  • Clear Layout: The web-based Form organized by Form PF sections and sub-sections.
  • Validation: The application includes a series of alerts, checks, validations and approval procedures.
  • Flexibility: The adviser has the ability to make topside adjustments to the Form.
  • Audit Trail: An audit trail is provided for all changes made, including a record of the original entry, the override, the editor, and date.
  • Collaboration: A share function is provided, allowing the user to send a portion of the Form for review or completion by an employee or other advisor.
