Matrics - Report Real-Time Portfolio Results
Choose Between a Variety of Pre-Configured Reports

Matrics provides an easy-to-use and highly flexible reporting engine.  Reported values include realized- and expected profit/loss, cash flows, positions (tonnage balance), fuel positions, value-at-risk, and more. A number of standard displays can be selected from a simple drop-down menu. All results can be viewed in a numeric or chart display. Results also can be copied to the clipboard or the entire report can be exported directly to Excel by a single click of a button. All calculations are so fast that the results can be presented in real-time with no need for off-line batch processing.

Easily Check Details and Explain Changes

The aggregate result in a report cell can be completely drilled-down to individual contract/voyage/month simply by clicking the cell. If you manage a large portfolio, this will save you a lot of time when you need to explain the results.

Historical report results are normally stored in the data base. This can be used by Matrics to present the current report results together with corresponding report values for a previous date in a difference display. For large portfolios this is an indispensable tool for tracking changes in positions or P/L and understanding the reasons for gains and losses. The difference display includes all the same layout and break-down possibilities as the report itself. (The layout used for the historical report at the time it was stored does not matter. Results are stored in an intermediary format that allows new break-downs to be applied at a later time.)

Customize Your Own Reports with a Few Clicks

If you are not happy with the pre-configured report displays, you can easily design your own. There are almost endless possibilities for organizing and breaking down the results, e.g. by portfolio, counterparty, broker, trader, vessel, contract type, index, time, etc.

Reports are easily filtered to show only the results of interest. Results can for example be limited to specific portfolios, counterparties, contract types, brokers, traders, etc. Filters are set easily using simple click or drag/drop operations.

Break-downs and filtering can be defined via the folder structure. This provides a flexible and efficient way to specify your requirements. For example, suppose that folder ‘Short Term Trading’ contains portfolios ‘A’ and ‘B’. Filtering on folder ‘Short Term Trading’ would include both portfolios ‘A’, and ‘B’. If portfolio ‘C’ where later added to ‘Short Term Trading’, it would automatically be included in the report. In contrast, a filter explicitly specifying portfolio 'A' and 'B' would not include portfolio 'C' when it was later added. Since almost all object types in Matrics are organized in hierarchical folder structures, this is a powerful feature that makes it easy to do filtering and break down with different granularities.

You can customize reports for your own personal use or store them in the database to be shared with the rest of the organization.

In addition to the general report engine, illustrated below, a number of special reports are provided for specific purposes, including clearing, settlement, counterparty exposure, voyage performance, and more. Click here for some examples.
