In Webfolio, a report is a formatted document providing information about a portfolio, an operation, or a product. Reports are produced for internal and external purposes. Webfolio also has many screens of information which can be copied or printed.

Portfolio and product reports assemble charts, graphics and data to describe the portfolio or product performance. They are generated on your local disk and are available in multiple formats (MS Excel, PDF and HTML), and natural languages. Portfolio and product reports can be:

  • Printed
  • Emailed
  • Stored in the Electronic Document Manager (EDM) so that they can be shared with other users
  • Stored in Webfolio's dedicated file system

Report Templates:
A template is a model used to create portfolio and product reports. Report templates are used for consistency in report production. A report template consists of:

  • An ordered list of customizable pages with parameters
  • A general layout
  • A disclaimer field

The page order as well as the page parameters is saved in the template. By default, all the pages in a template are selected so that they are produced in the corresponding report.


Webfolio gives you the ability to duplicate templates and to deselect any of its pages so that you can create new sub-templates. This functionality may be very useful when you have to send your reports to customers or contacts and you want to customize and save the layout.


Report templates are created from the Templates Browser which also lets you view, edit and remove templates.  You can also create a template “from scratch” by adding any existing report page to a report template. The general layout of the template lets you choose the paper orientation and format, as well as the export format.

Report Management:
Report validation is an intermediate step between the report set-up and compilation. The report validator checks the accuracy of the products data used in portfolio reports. It is based on the creation of system-configured validation rules attached to the report pages. You can check, for example, if the currency or the style of a fund is missing; you can also check that the cash contribution in the overall performance contribution is included between two given values. Rules can also be set at the portfolio level.

The management of report usages is linked to Webfolio’s mapping function, which allows you to anonymize your reports or disguise some of the original data. You can disguise:

  • Names (for the portfolio, the accounts, the securities and the indices)
  • Fund styles
  • Investment strategies
  • Portfolio contacts
  • Management types

MSCI classification for investment groups and investment processes will be used in your report instead of the regular classification used in Webfolio for styles and strategies. 

Portfolio Reports:
A portfolio report provides detailed portfolio summary and statistical information at a given date.
Because they are based on portfolio evaluations, the reports display the situation at the date of the evaluation. 

Standard portfolio reports include:

Analytical Report: Intended for clients, the analytical report contains thirty pages of information focused on displaying risk/return figures. It is the most complete portfolio report available in Webfolio.

Compliance Report: Intended for compliance officers, the compliance report shows portfolio constraint execution results. 

Estimate Report: The estimate report shows the estimated portfolio performance. Even though it is most of the time linked to an estimated valuation, an estimate report can also be produced based on an official valuation.

Info Sheet: The info sheet report shows general information about the portfolio such as the client, the account contacts, the fee structure or the accounting plan. It is intended for clients and client relationship managers.

Monthly Report: The monthly client report gives a comprehensive view of the portfolio monthly returns. It shows the portfolio activity, portfolio funds and cash holdings, portfolio asset under management, portfolio expenses, portfolio forex and pending operations, portfolio overview and performance as well as the portfolio liquidity analysis. It is intended for clients.

Simulation Report: The simulation portfolio report is derived from portfolio simulations. It shows, based on the portfolio current weightings, a pro forma summary of the portfolio including net performance, risk analysis, rolling performance, distribution of returns, scatter and estimated overview.

One page Report: The one page report is used for funds of funds, master / feeder portfolios or multi-share class funds (i.e., investment vehicles managed within Webfolio). It shows the portfolio details such as: breakdowns, performance, risk analysis and performance comparison in a summarized way. It is intended for investment vehicle sponsors and end investors.

Product Reports:
A product report provides detailed information about the performance of a security or a comparison between the performance of a security and one or more indexes at a given date. Because they are based on a security (funds only), product reports are created from the Products Browser

Here are the standard product reports:

  • Comparison Report: The comparison report shows the product’s total return and cumulative performance in comparison to the performance of the other elements (e.g. indices, other funds, stocks, portfolios, composites, etc.) of the peer group to which the product belongs.
  • Quant Fact Sheet report: The quant fact sheet report is the most complete product report available in Webfolio. It shows the product’s annual, latest and historical performance, risk and drawdown analysis, benchmark analysis, returns, correlation charts, rolling Sharpe ratio and risk return analysis.

A ticket is an electronic form showing all the relevant information about an order.
By default, the ticket shows:

  • The type of order
  • The trade number, which is linked to the bank and is customizable
  • The portfolio name
  • The ticket number, which is linked to the portfolio and is incremented
  • The name of the bank
  • The security name
  • The amount or the number of shares
  • The transaction date
  • The trade date
  • Special instructions.

Trade tickets are generated automatically in PDF format whenever an order is placed. By default, tickets are also saved in EDM. They can also be accessed from the EDM tab of the portfolio or from the general EDM Browser.
