The SS&C CAT Reporting Portal is a secure, web-based service that aggregates and enriches broker data across broker’s platforms and translates it into FINRA-compliant CAT reports. The Portal also provides an interactive front-end to enable customers to manage exceptions.

FINRA CAT certified more than 70 firms before the June 8th certification deadline with SS&C as the CAT Reporting Agent.
