by Manu Aggarwal, Robin Jain, Nikita Agarwal

The corporate actions space, marked with various risks and challenges at multiple life cycle stages, has so far been considered to be an inefficient, unstructured process that is hard to automate. But with the volume and complexity of corporate actions rising exponentially, their efficient processing has become a priority.

This paper sheds light on some of the complexities and risks characterizing this space and their related implications. We highlight the key areas in which issuers and market participants should invest and take a closer look at the third-party support that enterprises can leverage. Finally, we take a look at the pandemic’s transformative impact on corporate actions processing, with the role of technology and digital levers in solving some of the biggest organization’s challenges intensifying more than ever before.
