Corporate Actions Processing—Data Quality and Automation Are Key

Corporate actions processing is a critical function that capital markets firms need to get right, and that—as this whitepaper illustrates—remains manually intensive for firms whose data quality and processing capabilities are suboptimal. Conversely, for firms that have invested the time and money to optimize their various corporate actions processing functions, the benefits are significant, given that accurate and efficiently processed corporate messages feed a number of downstream business processes.

This survey and whitepaper follows on the heels of last year’s SIX corporate actions whitepaper, Corporate Actions Processing – The Iterative Revolution Already Underway,1 and confirms a number of its key findings, while introducing a number of new themes.
