Confluence, the global leader in investment data management automation, today announces that BlueBay Asset Management, a leading specialist manager of fixed income and alternative investment products, has chosen Confluence's Unity NXT™ regulatory reporting solutions to automate its data reporting processes, both to comply with current regulatory demands and in anticipation of future ones. BlueBay will use Unity NXT AIFMD Transparency Reporting, Unity NXT Form PF Reporting and Unity NXT Form CPO-PQR Reporting to collect its data and file the required reports.
Unity NXT regulatory reporting solutions solve complex data aggregation and reporting challenges, including those associated with AIFMD, Form CPO-PQR and Form PF reporting. These solutions are designed to provide asset managers with completeness, accuracy and control over each respective reporting process, assisting them in the collection of data, answer calculations, approval of the report form contents, and transmission of the filings.
Commenting on the appointment, Simon Lumsdon, Global Head of Technology at BlueBay Asset Management said, "As part of our drive to automate our regulatory reporting solutions, we wanted a platform that would allow us to fulfil not only our current AIFMD, Form CPO-PQR and Form-PF reporting obligations, but also allow us to meet future obligations. We chose Confluence because of their expertise and their known track record in helping the industry adapt to changing regulatory requirements."
