A steady increase in regulatory requirements coupled with growth in data provisioning mean that comprehensive and detailed information on capital investments is required 24/7.
Using a stringent governance process, Universal-Investment ensures data consistency for investors and provides support in the preparation of data.
PowerPortal is the web-based technological platform for all types of reporting: flexible and modular reporting and analysis options, central access to tailored reports, more than 200 standard reports from a wide range of modules and asset classes, including real estate-specific stress tests. Around-the-clock reporting – including via a smartphone or tablet.
Advantages at a glance:
Whether you want to highlight your carbon footprint, your attribution analysis, your ESG score or provide details on sectors and individual companies, our ESG-Reporting tool supplies the visual format you require – transparent, detailed and dependable.
Universal-Investment adopts a convincing top-down approach for its ESG-Reporting: After general information follows an analysis of individual portfolio positions which are performing particularly well (The Top 10) and which are performing particularly badly (The Flop 10). Business involvement evaluations and impact monitoring indicate the proportion of controversial industries, countries and practices represented in the portfolio. A carbon footprint calculation can also be provided for each individual industry.
MSCI®, a leading global research group, delivers the data required. The MSCI® database leverages its aggregated ESG scores of global investments (MSCI® is a registered trademark of MSCI Inc.).

The PowerPortal enables consolidated reporting across all asset classes and vehicles, including direct investments.
The Reporting includes documents from investment committee meetings, updated standard reports on valuation dates, ad-hoc evaluation options and fact sheets.
Asset class specific reports are available for alternative investments and real estate (including shareholdings). In the case of private equity investments, for example, overviews on commitments and capital calls, internal rate of return (IRR) performance presentations and return multiples can be provided.
In the real estate sector, the PowerPortal contains data on market values, how properties are used, debt financing, occupancy levels, regional focus and real-estate-specific stress tests.
The analysis tool PerformanceAnalyse+ provides a detailed insight into a portfolio’s performance as well as independent information on the evaluation of the respective asset managers. Performance drivers can thus be identified and asset managers’ active investment decisions that led to for out- or under performance are made transparent.
PerformanceAnalyse+ is based on a modular structure and addresses the following frequently-asked questions on fund performance:
Supervisory requirements for reporting systems are growing in line with the increase in regulatory requirements. One example is the EU fund data sheet, which details solvency capital requirements (SCR) implemented under the Solvency II directive for insurance companies. We conduct reporting in line with the Insurance Supervisory Act (VAG) for client groups subject to the Ordinance on the Investment of Restricted Assets of Insurance Undertakings (AnlV). The ABV stress tests for investments, among other things, are available for occupational pension schemes.
New provisions under the minimum requirements for risk management (MaRisk) require comprehensive provision of data. We support credit institutions in general with a comprehensive reporting system in accordance with:
In addition to the HGB annual financial statements, our range of services also includes reporting in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS).
In order to more accurately assess the market risk of future potential losses, the risk-adjusted performance should take the ex-ante risk into account. With the introduction of the qualified approach in the German Derivatives Ordinance and in MaRisk, the measurement of potential losses was established with quantitative methods in supervisory law. Universal-Investment is therefore expanding this regulatory framework and through RisikoAnalyse+, offers – among other things – the following components to assess market risk:
RisikoAnalyse+ identifies which asset classes or risk factors (such as interest rates or currencies) contribute the most to measured risk. Analogous to the top performers, the top risk securities can also be identified.
Flexible stress test options, which are also applied in RisikoAnalyse+, are offered to assess how a portfolio reacts to extreme market changes. In so doing, possible effects from political shifts or market events, such as changes in interest rates and stock market crises, can be analysed. Scenario analyses answer the standard “What would happen if…?” questions and provide investors with a clearer assessment of their portfolio’s risk content.
Senior Management Reporting facilitates the focused and concise presentation of key information from the multitude of standard reports stored in the PowerPortal, ensuring “everything-at-a-glance” reporting.
