What is an object?

An object is a set of data (fields or documents) that relate to each other and form a logical whole.

For example, a contact is a type of object that typically includes data elements such as first name, surname, phone, email and qualifications. Other objects include firm, strategy, fund, share class and performance.

AssetLogic works by keeping these datasets manageable in size and creating valuable links between them. Therefore, the information you might associate with, say, a fund might be broken down into several different objects, such as fund (its description and components), contacts (the people responsible for it), strategy (the strategy it is part of), firm (the company that owns it), share class (the share classes that apply to it) and performance (returns and other data).
