- Bonds such as fixed rate, floating rate, zero coupon, convertible and others
Various loan scenarios can be managed with complex schedules with varied time segments, rates and conditions using custom or pre-set amortization profiles. Payment history can be tracked to calculate late payment interest and manage accruals.
