Axioma, Abel Noser Create Regulatory System
Axioma, the leading provider of enterprise risk management, portfolio management, and regulatory reporting solutions, today announced a partnership with Abel Noser Solutions, a leader in the campaign to lower costs associated with trading, to provide an end-to-end solution that supports compliance with the SEC’s Investment Company Reporting Modernization Rules and Rule 22e-4 on liquidity disclosure.
This partnership benefits registered investment companies and other financial institutions affected by the SEC’s reforms. The new regulation will enable the SEC to better evaluate risks to particular funds or sectors, as well as risk across the fund industry. The SEC’s Reporting Modernization Rules, which require filing Form N-PORT, Form N-CEN, and Rule 22e-4, introduces Form N-LIQUID, which increases the complexity of calculations, data sourcing and aggregation compared with current reporting requirements. Investment firms will need an integrated, seamless reporting process to address these challenges.
To help firms eliminate the burden of these rule changes, Axioma and Abel Noser have combined their expertise with an integrated solution that allows registered investment companies to focus more time on their core business priorities.
Axioma’s expertise in Forms N-PORT, N-LIQUID, and N-CEN reporting and its strength in portfolio and risk data analytics, paired with Abel Noser’s market-leading liquidity and benchmarking services, will help customers address all aspects of their regulatory reporting and compliance requirements. The partnership also facilitates streamlined vendor management.
“As registered investment companies grapple with the complexity and burden of the SEC rule changes, it’s crucial that risk technology providers step in with powerful, integrated solutions that help simplify the reporting process,” said Sunay Shah, Global Head of Partnerships at Axioma. “Our cloud-based, front-to-back solutions and 20 years in risk analytics, combined with Abel Noser’s leading position in trade analytics, will expand our capabilities and help our customers address these challenges.”
“This exciting collaboration with Axioma will offer clients a complete regulatory solution,” said Peter Weiler, President of Abel Noser Solutions. “Our liquidity measurement, TCA and regulatory reporting expertise, combined with Axioma’s extensive reporting library and advantage in analytics, will reduce the burden on customers and enable greater preparedness for the substantial regulatory reporting changes that lie ahead.”
