Automated Outsourcing Services Signs up to SIX Telekurs’ Pricing & Corporate Actions Services

Automated Outsourcing Services (AOS), a Johannesburg-based independent third party fund administration company, has signed an agreement to use SIX Telekurs’ Intraday Pricing Service (IPS) and Corporate Actions Reports Service (CARS) in order to price their clients’ instruments and to support the servicing of their client’s assets: a mixture of equity and forex positions.

Director of Operations at AOS, Mark Baisley, commented, “The two success criteria in choosing the right data provider for our needs were accuracy and data coverage. We are very impressed with the high levels of both of these aspects which SIX Telekurs is able to provide.”

John McManus, Sales Director for SIX Telekurs UK and Ireland, said: “Both services (IPS & CARS) are versatile solutions for companies like AOS who have a very specific need. We are very pleased to be working with such a specialist company like AOS. Our partnership demonstrates our commitment to strengthening our presence in South Africa by offering a high level of customer service and flexible products.”

The SIX Telekurs’ Intraday Pricing Service (IPS) meets back and middle office requirements for portfolio management, custody services, analysis and research, clearing and settlement, fund management, compliance reporting and risk management. Prices can be called up at any time of the day – all you have to do is to choose when you want the information. The world’s top money managers use IPS for precise portfolio valuations because it delivers timely and accurate securities prices from over 850 global sources.

Corporate Actions Reports Service (CARS) helps clients be prepared for upcoming events in their portfolio, as part of the SIX Telekurs’ Reference Data & Pricing product range. Available in different formats, the output is “human readable” and is easily integrated into internal systems.
