WINDSOR, Conn., Feb. 17, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SS&C Technologies Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq:SSNC), a global provider of financial services software and software-enabled services, today announced the completion of Annex IV filing for over 50 Alternative Investment Fund Managers (AIFMs) and 300 Alternative Investment Funds (AIFs). SS&C GlobeOp filed with multiple Nationally Competent Authorities (NCAs) across Europe, including the key jurisdictions of Luxembourg, Ireland and the United Kingdom.
"We use extensive regulatory reporting expertise and infrastructure to help customers overcome the immense challenges of data aggregation, jurisdictional differences, complex calculations and short time periods," said Michael Megaw, Managing Director, Regulatory Solutions Group. "This approach has given our clients the ability to meet their Annex IV deadlines without significant drain on internal resources."
Annex IV is the main reporting element of the Alternative Investment Fund Management Directive (AIFMD). The report covers a very broad dataset designed to help regulators monitor systemic risk. In effect, it is the European equivalent of the systemic risk reporting that began in the United States – such as Form PF and CPO-PQR. SS&C GlobeOp urges managers who have not yet made filing arrangements to do so as soon as possible in order to avoid missing the mandate's future filing deadlines.
"Managers should evaluate their ability to produce this complex data internally versus the capabilities of proven regulatory reporting service providers who can pass through knowledge, expertise, technology and significant economies of scale," said Tom Kirkpatrick, Managing Director of Alternative Assets, EMEA.
SS&C GlobeOp's AIFMD web-based Annex IV reporting service leverages web-based workflow technology to automate the reporting process and to ensure that data is captured and aggregated in a consistent way. A portal oversees user permissions and security and provides a full audit trail to track changes, allowing for a controlled, informed and transparent report production process.
SS&C GlobeOp's Regulatory Solutions Group assists funds of all types with AIFMD, Form PF, FATCA and other compliance and reporting rules. Recent wins in the first quarter of 2015 takes the total number of customers to more than 300.
