Morningstar and Density Make the Funds’ Transparency Easier within the Solvency II Framework

Density Technologies, a French software vendor dedicated to asset management professionals, and Morningstar France, a leading provider of independent investment research, today announce the automatic integration of Morningstar market data feeds into DT Suite, Density Technologies’ software solution.

Morningstar provides one of the biggest and most complete databases in terms of funds with over 400,000 investment offerings. Institutional asset management professionals (Insurance, Pension funds, Asset Management companies, etc.) which use the DT Suite solution can now easily access European funds’ portfolio inventories. More than 90% of funds in fact regularly communicate their full inventories to Morningstar. These data are then automatically imported into DT Data Platform, DT Suite data management module, taking into account the investors’ and managers’ portfolios’ compositions. This service thus enables their clients to save time and resources for the collection of data and to have access to a complete “look-through” of the funds in which they invest.

DT Suite is a completely integrated, modular and real-time portfolio management solution, managing all French insurance specificities. Being entirely integrated with the other DT Suite modules, DT Solvency II offer – including a Market SCR computation, simulation and reporting engine – allows insurance companies investment executives to easily tackle the new challenges of the Solvency II regulation.

This solution allows its clients to compute the Pillar 1 requirements every quarter (both with standard and internal models), to regularly evaluate and daily monitor their own funds requirements within the ORSA framework (Pillar 2) and soon to generate the upcoming Pillar 3 reports (QRT reporting) with an end-to-end and complete audit trail.

The two companies today bring a perfectly complementary offering to Institutional Asset Management professionals in France and all over Europe. It does not only meet the new regulatory requirements, but it also allows them to monitor their investments thanks to easy funds “look-through” capacities and thus to develop their businesses soundly.
