Boise, ID (PRWEB) September 9, 2008 - Clearwater Analytics, a leading provider of web-based investment portfolio reporting, today announced its participation in the Association for Financial Professionals (AFP) annual conference, October 19-22 in Los Angeles, California. Selected to participate in three separate presentations, Clearwater has partnered with other industry leaders to discuss tax considerations for investment portfolios, opportunities to improve transparency into money market funds, as well as increase operational efficiency in corporate treasury investment reporting. Along with leading discussions on current financial and investment topics, Clearwater will also be demonstrating the industry's most advanced investment reporting solutions at booth number 1351.

"AFP is the marquee event that brings together the brightest financial professionals and industry visionaries in corporate treasury," said Clearwater's CEO Courtlandt Gates. "Clearwater is recognized as the leader of on-demand reporting and analytics for investment portfolios, and we have worked with our partners and customers to identify and present on today's pressing industry issues and provide recommendations for the future. Turmoil in the financial markets is changing the landscape and Clearwater is excited to share strategies that will enable companies to respond to market dynamics rather than be paralyzed by them."

Clearwater will be involved in three separate presentations at this year's AFP conference. Specific presentations include:
