Collective Investment Vehicles (CIV) diagram

Collective Investment Vehicles (CIV) is the canonical term for pooled investments offered to private, institutional, and individual investors. Examples of CIV, a.k.a. Funds depicted in the diagram are Equity Funds, Open-ended or Closed, SICAF, Sovereign Wealth Funds, SPV, Unit, and Umbrella Funds. The package is one of the fourteen main subject areas of the Financial Industry Business Data Model, FIB-DM 2020/Q1 Informative version. For Investment Managers and Servicers, the new data model derived from the Financial Industry Business Ontology (FIBO) provides packages for corporate actions, market data, securities, and derivatives.

The package diagram contains all CIV entities. In other words, all entities with the code starting fibo-civ.

  • Base Entities, in yellow, derived from FIBO classes, are things of interest to the fund.
  • Associative entities, blue, derived from FIBO object properties, connect two or more base entities. Note that the associated second entity may be in another package and hence not depicted in the diagram.

The Fund, Fund Unit, Terms entities are oversized to accommodate the numerous relationships. Textboxes point out clusters of entities modeling fund specifics:

  • Legal – the fund structure and legal entity
  • Characteristics are the fund type, properties and further information
  • Servicing Parties associate roles, such as manager, advisor, auditor, provider to the fund. Notice the side-by-side subtype hierarchies of associative entity and Thing in Role, typical for Semantic Data Models.
  • Investment Policy and Restrictions are modelled in another cluster of entities.
  • The Portfolio and Processing have their definition in the lower right corner.
