This Seminar on Fund Accounting will examine how Fund Management Companies record and reflect the range of trades, security movements, cash movements and adjustment activities on their internal accounting system. As part of our focus, we will explore how these internal records are used to satisfy financial and regulatory reporting requirements.

Topics to be addressed include trade life cycle, income processing, pricing and valuation, corporate actions, fund level and investor level management and incentive fee calculation, fee accruals and payments. The seminar will also cover such areas as, subscription and redemption recording, cash and position reconciliation, NAV calculation and will look at how to go from NAV calculation to investor and financial statements. The seminar will not, however, deal with fair value and hedge accounting which is a topic for a more advanced fund accounting seminar coming up soon.
