The introduction and evolution of the Undertakings for Collective Investments in Transferable Securities (UCITS) set of directives for pooled investment funds has created a standardized brand that is driving growth across the European investment fund industry. By complying with UCITS, fund administrators are inherently proving to regulators that they have the infrastructure, processes and procedures to effectively meet transparency targets. Yet, each newly created fund or reporting requirement brings added pressure on administrators to meet the added workload while, at the same time, mitigating the risk of error and operating with high levels of efficiency. As a result, traditional processes that rely on error-prone spreadsheets and manual processes are proving inadequate for the task at hand.
Confluence solutions provide flexible options for automating UCITS regulatory and statutory reporting. Additionally, Unity NXT Expense Processing provides fund administrators with the efficiency, risk control and oversight they need to effectively monitor the funds expenses.
Our solutions support the reporting and oversight needs for funds domiciled and administered across the EU and offshore -- including Unit Trusts and OEICs in the UK; CCFs, Investment Companies, QIFs and Retail Funds in Ireland ; and SICAVs and FCPs in Luxembourg, as well as open and closed ended Cayman and Bermuda structures.
They also support multiple fund types, including Umbrella funds, Fund of funds and Master / Feeder funds.
