Asset servicers must enable their clients to satisfy stringent regulatory enforcement across many jurisdictions. Implementing a comprehensive, technology-based compliance solution is vital to an organization’s strategic planning process and will further differentiate them in the asset servicing market. Driving efficiencies will differentiate and better position firms to deliver value-added service to clients.
Linedata Compliance offers best in class rule coverage along with maker/checker functionality for rule management which will require four eyes review before new or modified rules become effective. A new compliance module offering ‘as-of’ compliance allows clients to store historical data and run post-trade investment compliance for any selected effective date recreating that portfolio situation at that point in time. Expanded pre-trade compliance API allows for easy integration across platforms to provide a comprehensive and consolidated view of compliance events.
