Unity Financial Reporting®

As part of the Investor Communications platform, Unity Financial Reporting lets you automate the creation of critical financial reports to let you gain control over the processes associated with production of shareholder documents and their regulatory disclosures.

In today's era of increased transparency, financial reporting is extraordinarily demanding. Not only do investors, regulators and internal fund stakeholders require additional reporting, they want it more often and with faster turnaround times -- and there is zero tolerance for error. These demands have rendered brittle, error-prone spreadsheets and manual processes obsolete.

Traditionally the process of collecting the data, creating draft reports, verifying accuracy and then producing multiple drafts and a final, stylized report takes days or even weeks. By automating the process with Unity Financial Reporting, however, it takes fewer employee hours to deliver reports, risk of human error is reduced, service levels are elevated, and scalability is improved. Most importantly, the time to first draft is reduced to just hours and users have greater control over reporting processes.

Unity Financial Reporting lets you establish user-defined permission controls and provides you with audit trails to record changes and updates, noting which user made the update and when. Validated data is stored in a centralized database and reused for multiple purposes, giving you peace of mind that the data in each report has been validated and controlled. And, because footnotes are created and maintained automatically, you can be assured that they are consistent and accurate.

Unity Financial Reporting is designed to support the full array of managed investments, including '40 Act Funds, UCITS, non-UCITs, ETFs, Closed-Ended Funds, Insurance Funds, Pension Funds, Variable Annuities, and Hedge Funds.
