CompositeHub™ is CAPS' cloud-based composite management and reporting solution. The integration enables clients to import portfolio-level data (attributes and performance) into CompositeHub, where a rules engine automates the construction of your composites for easier GIPS® and SEC reporting.

Required access level
You’ll work with members of both Addepar and our partner’s services teams to install, configure and test your integration. To get started, contact an Addepar representative.View Configuration Guide
Before setting up the integration, you'll need a subscription to CompositeHub.
Contact CAPS and request the integration
CAPS will kick off the process of setting up and customizing the integration to meet your firm's specific needs.
Set up views
Then, CAPS and Addepar will help you create integration-specific views in your Addepar instance.
Run the integration
After you create an API Key and Secret, CAPS will work with you to connect the integration and make sure everything runs smoothly.
Does your integration use a bi-directional data transfer?
No, it currently only takes in data from Addepar.
Does the system provide the ability to generate GIPS-required presentation charts and disclosures for each composite?
The CAPS system includes a GIPS Report for reporting all GIPS-required metrics (annual returns, number of accounts, ex-post standard deviation, internal dispersion, etc.) and specific disclosures for composites and pooled funds. Users can customize the text for disclosures and apply a ranking-level for each. Revised disclosures are tracked by the system. The way, it's easy to see if a disclosure is ever updated or changed, which helps in the verification process. The system can create GIPS Reports for a single or multiple composites or pooled funds. GIPS Reports can be produced in PDF format, and exported to Word or Excel. Alternatively, the data can also go into an internal data warehouse with firm-created presentations.
Is your system able to support a firm that claims compliance with GIPS?
The CAPS system is integral to the GIPS compliance process for firms that utilize it. It allows all portfolios to be easily tracked from their inception to termination, and to identify which composites each portfolio belongs for any given month. Additionally, the system identifies portfolios that should not be included in any composite, and the reasons why, such as the portfolio being non-discretionary or being below a minimum size requirement. The system facilitates composite inclusion requirements established by the firm as well as other composite-specific evaluation criteria. Beyond the system itself, the representatives from CAPS are extremely well-versed in performance measurement, GIPS compliance and risk measurement.
Does your system have the ability to calculate internal dispersion within a composite on both an asset-weighted and equal-weighted basis?
Yes, both asset-weighted and equal-weighted measures can be calculated and reported. The system also includes a setting to specify sample or population when calculating dispersion.
