FundApps Shareholding Disclosure Pre-Trade API

Shareholding pre-trade disclosure checks can mean tight deadlines, low thresholds, ETF hard stops, pre-merger notifications and more. Examples that come to mind are European short-selling rules, 12D and HSR and monitoring on a pre-trade basis is often a time-consuming mix of manual workarounds, manual rule coding and cross-checks.

The FundApps Pre-Trade API for Shareholding Disclosure automates all your pre-trade checks, does them in real-time and can aggregate across your whole portfolio.
