Are you facing ever-changing regulation on a global basis?
Does your firm rely upon error-prone, manual self-interpretation or outdated and expensive proprietary software?
We ensure that compliance professionals can reduce the time and cost associated with shareholding disclosure, prove adherence to regulation, mitigate reputational risk and avoid fines.
Our outsourced, managed service combines a powerful rules engine with a dedicated team of compliance experts and legal information from aosphere (an affiliate of Allen & Overy) and other regulatory data sources.
We automate disclosure requirements such as major shareholding, 13F reporting, short selling (EU Short Selling Rules, Hong Kong, Japan, etc.), takeover panels, issuer limits, issuer requests (such as Section 793) and more.
400+ RULES, 90+ JURISDICTIONS, 150+ DISCLOSURE FORMS
Our Shareholding Disclosure service is used to analyse over US $8 trillion in AuM every day. There is no need to restrict trading activities because of complex shareholding disclosure regulations. With FundApps' integrated workflows, custom alerts and notifications, you can trade globally without concern.
We help our clients be more efficient and save time by eliminating the need for complicated spreadsheets and risk of human error; and reducing the need for costly legal counsel. We help them save money as they have no need for expensive proprietary systems, no infrastructure costs, no per-user fee.
Our service lets you connect, communicate and share regulatory know-how with compliance professionals around the world, providing community support in the validation of unreliable market data (such as denominator values).
Our content team interprets and translates legal information into algorithms, creating and maintaining 400+ rules. Furthermore, feedback on rules from our client community supplements and enhances our rules package.
The system models complex company hierarchies in a variety of dimensions, including how they might differ in regard to management discretion, the power to exercise voting rights, and other considerations relevant to how beneficial ownership is defined around the world.
We automatically source the latest in regulatory information by scraping multiple websites to provide our clients with takeover panel data, issuer limits and more. If more detail is needed, we reach out to regulators to get a better understanding directly from the source.
Room-In-A-Name calculates how much can be traded ("Room") in an issuer ("Name") before reaching the next reportable threshold. Having this information readily visible in the system, as well as exportable to your OMS, ensures compliance and front-office teams are connected with time to anticipate upcoming filings and are able to make data driven decisions.
The Automated Community Denominator Check highlights the differences between denominator values (e.g. total shares outstanding) uploaded by clients. This reduces the volume of manual checks within compliance teams’ workflow - increasing both efficiency and confidence.
For compliance professionals around the world who constantly need to source up-to-date company information, GCD provides a single golden source of all company information, powered and verified by the FundApps Compliance Community.
