Created by Erik Åkerlund, Modified on Mon, 20 Feb 2023 at 02:30 PM by Erik Åkerlund

Portfolio codes are necessary components in the system. This article will show you how to set up a new portfolio code. As an example we describe how to set up a new Entity. The procedure is the same for all other portfolio codes such as Counterparty, Strategy, Deal Type etc.

Here's how it works:

  1. Go to Register > Portfolio Codes > Entities (this example)

  2. Enter the new legal entity code by clicking on the Create new button. The code is limited to 10 positions. Write as one word.

  3. Fill in the entity's local currency and press Save.

Portfolio Groups

If there are portfolio groups available when a new code is entered you will be asked if you want to add the code to a portfolio group. If the answer is 'Yes' the tree structure will be opened displaying all existing portfolio structures of the specific type. Right click on the portfolio to which you want to add your new code and choose 'Add'.

Portfolio Codes Details

More information regarding the Entity can be entered under Register > Portfolio codes > Portfolio codes Details

Note on bank accounts

If you send payments and reconcile bank accounts you must also enter Bank accounts under Portfolio Codes Details. More info in this article here: How to: Set up a new bank account
