About this talk

Corporate actions processing is one of the last bastions of partially manual activities in the realm of securities operations. Yet as the pandemic lockdown is showing full automation may become necessary sooner than later. Firms are assigning more staff to handle the increasing volumes of corporate action notifications that need to be processed. But that is an expensive solution riddled with operational risks. In addition, firms need improved data capture, better internal and external communication, a final exit from spreadsheets, and end-to-end management of elections. What will make corporate actions processing cross the line and become part of a digital transformation?

What you will takeaway from this session:

  • In 2021, how much of corporate actions processing is still manual?
  • Are firms starting to transform the manual aspects of corporate actions processing?
  • Are the bottom-line savings of automation enough to justify the transition away from manual systems?
  • Can new ways of cleansing corporate actions data be part of a digital transformation? Which cutting-edge technologies (A.I., RPA) could ease firms into automation?
  • What role will APIs and other integration technologies play in facilitating automation?
  • What changes need to happen to improve data input? How can cloud computing assist in the automation push?
  • How would full automation impact corporate actions workflows?
  • Have you got yours yet?
