Corporate Actions


Corporate Actions

The constantly evolving Corporate Action area is one of the most risk prone processes in the securities industry and it is still to a large degree managed manually.

The risks linked to human activity are worsened by the mishandling of information received from multiple parties, the lack of standards across markets, the need to accurately and punctually inform all the parties concerned: clients, custodians, sub-custodians, intermediaries.

The scenario is further complicated by market evolution and its growing complexity, in terms of volumes and the generation of sophisticated events.
