Digitalise end-to-end Corporate Actions processing to mitigate risks and improve productivity
Research shows that corporate actions continue to be an area of significant risk and poor automation. The historic high cost and inefficiency of systems has led to the utilisation of mature, manual processes, which over time have been accepted as the norm.
Contemi's Corporate Actions solution is designed to break this norm by providing a complete, automated solution which will be cost effective for the smallest financial institutions, but able to scale to the largest.
It will improve your corporate actions data, ensuring no event is missed or erroneous information provided to and acted upon by internal decision makers or external clients. It will provide processing visibility against workflows specific to any event type, ensuring compliance to best practice and adhesion to internal/market deadlines. It will manage the dissemination of information to those who make the decisions, especially voluntary events, recording the resulting instructions, allocating and reporting them correctly across multiple custodians.
The Corporate Actions solution, with its highly configurable and modular architecture, can deployed either as a hosted service or on premise.
