Enhanced post-trade solutions to tackle your 2022 challenges
This year saw increased regulatory hurdles, a push for sustainability and accountability, and the continued specter of COVID-19 shape the corporate actions and securities processing world. IHS Markit listened to the needs of our buy-side and sell-side communities to enhance our products to help your firm grow in 2022 and beyond.
UX upgrade delivers enhanced workflow & responsive design
Our Corporate Actions and Securities Processing platforms provide a state-of-the-art, low-code, configurable user experience, with risk and control dashboards to enable efficient management of the exception-based workflow. We've enhanced the user experience with a graphical toolkit, which assists users and team leaders in understanding immediate and longer-term priorities. The UX was built using the latest web standards and technologies, incorporating an enhanced API suite.
Additionally, as mandated by W3C regulations in Europe, our platforms support responsive design across a range of key UI's, to ensure platform screens render on a variety of devices, windows or screen sizes and support high-contrast changes.
Streamline your corporate actions onboarding
Our pre-configured, standardized, cloud-based Corporate Actions SaaS solution enables buy- and sell-side firms to onboard within a four-month period, providing a low TCO and the ability for clients to realize tangible business benefits within a very short timeframe. This platform delivers direct connectivity towards the DTCC SMART network, eliminating complex integration efforts while enabling clients to utilize corporate actions automation via the latest ISO 20022 messaging standards.
Stay on the right side of new disclosure rules
Within our Integrated Proxy Voting solution, our platform delivers the SRDII requirements for shareholder disclosure and communication across meeting lifecycles, disseminating meeting agendas and capturing voting preferences and confirmations with the ISO 20022 format for shareholder identification and proxy voting.
Manage cash penalty regime fines
Our Securities Processing platform supports the cash penalty regime of the CSDR regulation, in which penalties for settlement failure will drive market participants to ensure settlement finality is implemented. These fines, calculated and levied by the depositories for late matching and settlement, can be posted to a client's account periodically on a net basis within our platform, while all communication can be managed via the SWIFT 15022/20022 message protocols.
Gain transparency through real-time corporate actions data
Our Managed Corporate Actions solution provides unlimited access to corporate action data and allows customers to view full details in real-time, including event-level data, dates, options, terms and conditions, and restrictions. We offer access to a variety of data vendors through our platform, allowing customers the flexibility to select the vendors they want to work with, which can provide them further control over cost. Our portal and real-time file deliveries allow our customers complete transparency.
Evolve beyond manual validation
Our Agent Validation Service provides a managed service that delivers rigorously reviewed and validated golden-source corporate actions data based on your firm's requirements, eliminating time-consuming and error-prone manual reconciliation and validation of agent messages for corporate actions. Our people, expertise, and robust technology help your team to deliver with exceptional accuracy, speed, and regulatory compliance.
