Launch of New Corporate Events Diary

We are very pleased to announce the upgrade of the Corporate Events Diary (CED) on to the newest version of our UnaVista platform on Monday 19th November 2012.

What does this upgrade mean for CED users?

The upgrade to UnaVista will retain all the key elements you enjoy today but in addition, dependent on your license type, will offer you additional benefits such as:

  • Improved efficiency– faster processing speeds and a more intuitive user interface create a faster environment to work in.
  • Increased visibility – additional functionality such as summary dashboards, dynamic filtering and portfolio management enable you to view and manipulate the data however you want.
  • New data content – introduction of the Corporate Action Event Reference (COAF)
 

Corporate Action Event Reference (COAF)

Additionally, we will commence allocation of the Official Corporate Action Event Reference (COAF) after being appointed by the National Market Practice Group as best placed to provide COAF for the UK Market

COAF is the official and unique reference assigned by an appointed entity within each national market at the beginning of a corporate action event. The COAF is globally adopted as the standard for corporate action identification and provides recognition that we are considered the primary source of UK corporate actions data.

MT564 Messages

As part of the upgrade, we will also be updating our MT564 Corporate Action messages to be in line with the new Standards that come into effect on 17th November 2012.

User Migration

To ensure migration to the new Corporate Events Diary is as seamless as possible, user profiles will be automatically transferred. Registered users will receive an email notification during the weekend of the upgrade which can be activated on Monday 19th November.
