A Message to Our Esteemed Customers

Kindly advise should you be interested and we’ll revert with a more exact time-frame based on your setup.

Fixes and Enhancements in the Application:

INC NoTitleDescription
#972Facility Undrawn AmountFix in the Undrawn Amount in the FACS which was sometimes was not being refreshed correctly.
#917Flows – Column Exchange Reval LCYSetting of the column as an optional for clients who’s base rate is EUR
#907EOPB – Column ProductTypeValidation for column when client’s license is FINREP and not Core.
#909EOPB – New Field APRCInclusion of a new column APRC in EOPB as part of core license
#915Flows Data SourcePerformance improvements on the flows data source
-EOPB.RelatedParty Fix in auto Retrieval from CLTS
#914ReclassificationsIssue when multiple dimensions change e.g. ResidencyStatus.
This should not disallow reclassifications from being calculated
#918Flows Reclassification change in LogicChange in Logic for reclassification calculations:

Reclassifications on CALCULATED FLOWS:
Internally to remove: To Remove the following fields from Flows:
Rating, Exposure Nationality, Exposure Party as these are not required

• On change of ANY dimension, keep splitting of flows on two rows (previous month vs current month), as per old logic
• If reclassification flag is enabled, populate the reclassification measure on the movement records
• For calculated flows (i.e. not file), then deduct the reclassification measure from the movement

To add a new dimension called Reclassification Type, which points to the Measure Type table. This will flag on which dimension reclassification has occurred:
E.g:
RECF_I Industry
RECF_IN Industry + Nationality
RECF_N Nationality
RECF_S Sector
RECF_SI Sector + Industry
RECF_SIN Sector + Industry + Nationality
RECF_SN Sector + Nationality
RECF_T TCM
RECF_C Convenience
(Makes use of the new dimension)


As per incident #911, reclassification is to consider Sector, Nationality, TCM and Industry, as well as ACCS.Convenience


Reclassifications on FLOW FILE:
As per calculated
NOTE: If the GL or VALUETYPE is changed from one month to the other, no Reclassification is calculated, otherwise this would require a change in the Movement value in order to match with the regulation’s formula of:

Ft = (St-St-1) - Ct - Vt – Et

Where Ft = Flow
St = Stock end of period
St-1 = Stock end of previous period
Ct = Reclassification adjustment
Vt = Revaluation adjustment
Et = Exchange Rate adjustment
#916Flows on EOPFIssue on calculated FLOWF - Resolved
#911Reclassification Convenience MarkerReclassification of Convenience Marker, similar to Sector / Nationality / Industry / TCM. To pull Convenience from on ACCS file in flows data sources, and to reclassify accordingly.
#913TransactionDate in FlowsRemoval of column from file as this was not being used by ETL.
#883Preparation for LD7 changes in Joint CustomersNew functionality to assist customers in filling in LD7 related to JointCustomers. The product file currently remains as is for the time being.

New field JointCustomers added to the ACCS file. Optional, length 250, default NONE. This will include all the Joint Customers (comma delimited) including the main account holder.

A new package is required which will go through the number of joint account holders and apportion the data in EOPB accordingly by dividing the number equally between the account holders, saving it in a new fact. Only Liabilities for EOPB need to be picked in the DCS logic. The package does not require any file. The fact will have the following columns:
ProcessID
Time_MemberID
AccountProduct
GLAccount
CurrencyReporting
CurrencyTransaction
Nationality (Update from CLTS)
Sector (Update from CLTS)
ValueType
ValueBucket (To be recalc based on apportioned balance)
Party
Entity
Version
MeasureType (set to DCS)
Balance
AccruedInterest
