Investor reporting is more complex today than ever before, for a variety of reasons. Governments are creating additional investor tax regimes while redeveloping existing ones; distribution models are broadening with new investor markets being identified by the investment management industry; and the role of the transfer agent and development of blockchain/AI ledgers adds new dimensions to today’s investor reporting model.
In addition to the compliance obligations of the manager, houses are looking more closely at delivering fund reporting services to their investors in order to maintain a competitive edge. There is only ever one set of true data for a fund holding, distribution, or accumulation of income at any given point in time. This data may need to be sliced a number of times in different ways to address each investor market reporting needs. Keeping up to date and aware of how that data needs to be cut, enhanced, transformed, or cleansed for global investors is critical, but is low value add work for the tax function.
Our global team have designed and developed a single fund reporting service for all main fund ranges for global distribution models. The underlying data is extracted through our connections with fund administrators, removing the need to request this data from clients. Our algorithms then cut, enhance, transform, and cleanse that data to address these individual market reporting needs.
