Institutional Investors

Unbiased and independent performance and risk analyses are essential for institutional investors monitoring their portfolios. For them to make effective and profitable investment decisions, they need access to high quality, timely and accurate information about their investment and portfolio space, as well as vital compliance data.

We can act as the master record keeper for institutional investors. We also offer a range of tailored reporting and analysis, so that institutional investors not only benefit from a totally independent organization, but also from our specialized and in-depth reporting and analytics tools. Our ability to provide our clients with a single point of access for all their information needs results in a seamless, integrated data environment that reduces the risk of compromising data integrity through multiple sourcing.

Compliance

The major shareholding reporting includes a web application, called compliance cockpit, featuring data quality management, regulatory market data and predefined regulatory rule sets. It supports compliance officers in satisfying international regulatory reporting obligations regarding relevant voting rights/investment discretion and thus reduces the risk of breaching local supervisory regulations.
