Donnelley Financial Solutions Integrates Bloomberg Data to Help Firms Comply with SEC Liquidity Regulations

Share:

Donnelley Financial Solutions (NYSE:DFIN) and Bloomberg, today
announced a joint regulatory reporting solution that integrates
Bloomberg's liquidity data with Donnelley Financial's ArcFiling platform
to help mutual funds comply with new requirements mandated by the SEC's
liquidity and reporting modernization rules.

Under the new regulation, open-ended mutual funds are subject to more
rigorous reporting requirements for data and liquidity risk in their
Form N-PORT filings. Gathering and synthesizing this data into a
compliant format can be challenging without the right reporting platform
and data source.

"With the integration of our ArcFiling platform and Bloomberg's
Liquidity Assessment tool (LQA), firms can now automate custom monthly
reporting for the SEC through the use of innovative techniques in big
data and machine learning to provide portfolio-level market data and
liquidity risk analytics," said Eric Johnson, president of Global
Investment Markets at Donnelley Financial Solutions.

ArcFiling, Donnelley Financial's cloud-based application, enables firms
to create, package and submit their documents directly to the SEC. The
ArcFiling platform is designed to provide firms with a single source for
the data, validation and filing capabilities to meet the N-PORT
requirement.

Bloomberg's data includes all three areas of the modernized Form N-PORT
filing: reference data, risk data and liquidity, and covers an expansive
range of asset classes, including equities, bonds, municipal securities,
structured products and more.

"Bloomberg's multi-disciplinary team is experienced across finance,
artificial intelligence and distributed technologies to ensure delivery
of accurate and consistent data that when combined with Donnelley
Financial's ArcFiling platform, provides firms with a complete reporting
workflow solution," said Naz Quadri, Head of Liquidity Analytics at
Bloomberg.

LQA is part of Bloomberg's Enterprise Data suite of regulatory and
accounting data sets that help compliance professionals at banks, asset
managers, insurers and other financial organizations navigate an
increasingly complex and data-intensive requirements. To learn more
