Regulation

In an ever tightening regulatory environment risk and compliancy data is assuming a new and elevated status. SIX Financial Information provides you with the information required to adhere to latest EU and International Financial Services Regulations.

End investors value transparency concerning risks, costs and the earning potential of their investments. Strengthening regulations now extend to taxation, the application of official sanction lists for politically exposed persons (PEP), anti-money laundering requirements and international terror prevention.
 
Our collaboration with Dun & Bradstreet delivers corporate hierarchies and the identitity of ultimate asset owners. Within the funds space, our work with Morningstar provides full transparency of fund holdings. This data enables a detailed estimation of exposure arising from a particular company, industry sector, region or asset category. We have developed specialized tools for providing transparency on specific types of investments including complex equity derivatives and indices.
 
These and a number of other data partnerships round out our data portfolio in the area of risk and compliance. The data is delivered through our reference data and real time market data delivery services. Customized databases and display environments for risk and compliance applications are available as part of our Solutions offering.
