October 9, 2018
Pittsburgh, PA, October 9, 2018 – Confluence, a global leader in investment data management automation for regulatory, financial and investor reporting, has won Best Data Management Solution at the 2018 Mutual Fund Service and Technology Awards. They were also shortlisted as a finalist for two other categories: Best Technology/Infrastructure Initiative and Best Technology Provider Overall.
Sponsored by Fund Intelligence and recognizing the achievements of the full spectrum of service providers, the Mutual Fund Service and Technology Awards are given annually to firms that provide a vital function for the US mutual fund sector.
Nominees were determined by an independent panel of industry experts, and for each category, applicants had to demonstrate outstanding client satisfaction and growth over the past 12 months.
“We are delighted to have won for Best Data Management solution,” said Todd Moyer, COO at Confluence. “It is a huge honor for our technology and data management solutions to be recognized, and we are particularly excited to have been acknowledged for three categories this year. We at Confluence pride ourselves in providing technology to bring greater efficiency and automation to our clients’ operations.”
Helping to bring back-office operations into the digital age by eliminating manual processes and spreadsheets, Confluence’s suite of solutions enables asset managers and third-party administrators to consolidate and leverage data across business operations. It was recently announced that Confluence’s clients - fund administrators and asset managers servicing or managing over 75% of all ’40 Act funds - have selected the Unity NXT® platform to file their Form N-PORT and Form N-CEN filings.
Both Form N-PORT and Form N-CEN require certain registered investment companies to compile fund data and report it to the SEC in a structured format on a regular basis. The SEC adopted temporary rule 30b1-9(T) postponing, until April 30, 2019, the need for funds in larger fund groups to file Form N-PORT but still required those funds to maintain the information that is required to be included in the form, which is subject to examination by the SEC.
The Mutual Fund Service and Technology Awards recognize the service providers – including administrators, custodians, legal specialists, accounting groups, and technology providers – who provide a vital function for the U.S. mutual fund sector. Winners of the 2018 Awards were announced on October 4th during a ceremony in New York.
