DTCC Automates Voluntary Corporate Actions Lifecycle

Subscribe to our newsletter

The Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation (DTCC) has made a further move to fully automate the corporate actions lifecycle with the processing of the US market’s first automated voluntary reorganisation ISO 20022 instruction. The process was carried out by DTCC subsidiary The Deposit Trust Company (DTC) using its newly automated voluntary reorganisation service, which is part of the company’s plan to help reduce the rising costs and risks associated with corporate actions.

The service was tested with Broadridge, which services more than 60 of DTCC’s corporate actions mutual clients, and provides the ability to manage and execute corporate action instructions around time-sensitive events in a more streamlined and efficient manner. DTCC processes over 600,000 reorganisation instructions each year.

Describing the automated voluntary reorganisation service as a ‘a major milestone’, Ann Marie Bria, executive director of asset services business management at DTCC, says: “Having end-to-end automation throughout the corporate actions lifecycle will allow the industry to use fixed data formats and a standardised set of rules, creating new efficiencies while reducing risks and costs.”

Broadridge gains the ability to automate the end-to-end corporate actions lifecycle for users of its cloud-hosted corporate actions solution by incorporating automated and integrated election instructions to DTC in ISO 20022 format. Michael Wood, head of asset servicing at the company, comments: “This service will increase STP rates on voluntary corporate actions, reduce risk associated with manual errors, and provide scalability and cost savings for the industry.”
