Depositary Banks, Fund Management Companies and others need to protect investors' data and assets by proactively monitoring their service providers. Regulations such as AIFMD and UCITS V require banks to perform due diligence over a fund's organisation, procedures, and controls, as well as its service providers. At the same time, UCITS Management Companies and Alternative Investment Funds (AIFs) are under increasing pressure in Europe to monitor delegated activities such as transfer agency, fund distribution, administration, accounting, investment management, IT services and others. Increasingly, Fund Platforms are a service providers of interest, responsible for the safekeeping and administration of securities under custody. Given the wide range of services they can provide, a comprehensive assessment is essential.
Thomas Murray's Fund Platform Monitoring solution eases the burden on banks and funds by administering a managed service to collect data, generate a report based on a standardised proprietary methodology and maintain data in a structured form. Thomas Murray generates a detailed assessment with overall and sub-risks rated AAA to C.
