With the Christmas holidays fast approaching, there are some things we'd like to remind you of as a Nordkap customer. In this article, we've put together a user checklist so that you can be prepared for the holidays.
Make sure your positions are correct
Do you have a good overview of when future payments and final maturities will occur? We recommend using the Reminders function to send you a reminder directly in the system or to your email inbox. The Maturity Report will allow you to review all upcoming events that are connected to the end of the year, such as interest payments, amortizations and final maturities.
Is everything in place with your accounting exports?
Please gather all positions in the export file and configure your accounting rules adequately, especially those that are tied to the end of the year.
Do your staff have the right access?
Who will be working during the holidays? Please get in touch with us to register new users and permissions. In Nordkap, there are two user levels; admin and read-only. There are also three levels of accounting permissions, which are accounting admin, the ability to assign accounting templates and generate accounting files.
Bank holidays and interest rate swaps
Keep in mind that bank holidays will affect which dates the market rates will be fetched, this is particularly important when swap valuations and interest rate fixings are planned.
Our support during Christmas and New Year's Eve
Please contact our support if you have any questions. We're happy to assist you, though our ability to provide phone support will be somewhat limited during the holidays. Our opening hours are 9-16 on weekdays.
