WebPortfolio Tips: Running Report

By Jim Miesel on Thursday, November 18th, 2010

WebPortfolio includes several built-in reports that allow you to see the data for a specific client in an easy-to-read format. To run a report, you first select a client from the main advisor screen in WebPortfolio, and then press the “Client’s Financial Info” button. If an alert window pops up, close it. Next, press the button near the bottom of WebPortfolio that looks like a printer. You’ll have the option to either “Create a report” or “Export to a file.” Let’s say you choose to create a report. 

You should now see a window with several options, including, near the top of the window, a listing of the different reports you can run. When you click on a report, you will see its description to the right. These are the different reports that are available in WebPortfolio:

·         Asset Allocation Composite: Summarizes composite allocation across multiple portfolios or accounts.

·         Asset Allocation Detail: Shows your target and actual asset allocation for individual portfolios or accounts.

·         Net Worth Allocation: Shows details of net worth, including valuations and asset allocations.

·         Net Worth Detail: Itemized breakdown of net worth by asset class, portfolio, account and/or holding.

·         Portfolio Holding Appraisal: Shows cost and value information for your holdings.

·         Risk & Return: Shows the beta and returns of your holdings. Click on the “Charts” tab to specify which charts to include.

·         Summary: Shows a summary of portfolios, accounts and holdings. Also shows assets, liabilities and net worth.

·         Transactions: Shows a detailed transaction history. Click on the “Sort” tab to specify grouping and sorting options.

On the Data tab, you can choose what data you want to include in the report. You can also choose to run a report based on a single account, a group of accounts, or an entire portfolio. If you have any archived accounts, you can view a report of the historical data for that account. You can also choose a period if you would like to view transactions for a specific date range, for example.

When you have all the options set, press the “View” button to bring up the report in a new browser window. You can also press the “Save” button to save a copy of the report to your computer.
