Broadridge Automates Corporate Actions Managed Through Euroclear CREST

Subscribe to our newsletter

Broadridge Financial Solutions has fully automated corporate action and dividend events managed through the Euroclear CREST platform. The service includes event creation, instruction management, and payments processing and settlement, and is designed to reduce risk associated with human error and provide cost savings for clients.

Members of both CREST and Broadridge Global Asset Servicing are able to source CREST event data as part of the announcement capture process, in turn facilitating the automation of instructions, increasing straight-through-processing rates, and minimising risks associated with manual instructions. This includes handling the time-sensitive buyer protection process or ‘ACON’, which is specific to the UK market.

The systematic management of transformation and payment provided by the CREST platform is also supported, providing full control over the booking and settlement of entitlements across event types for Broadridge clients.

“This is the latest example of Broadridge driving market innovation through automation across the corporate actions industry,” says Michael Wood, head of asset servicing at Broadridge. “The solution provides full end-to-end processing automation, real time connectivity to clients’ position management systems, market data sources, and now direct market infrastructure connectivity.”
