The first thing any investment company must do in response to the new SEC Investment Company Reporting Modernization is evaluate its current state of readiness. Chances are you have started a compliance program. However, we can help you understand your gaps, including areas where you need immediate action and longer-term changes to support the program.
Immediate action areas may include any of the following:
- Planning: Review of project governance, project plans, and risk logs to identify red flags
- Analysis: Identification of critical data gaps, implementation or reinforcement of data governance processes, and documentation of requirements
- Implementation: Technical services to acquire and integrate new data sources, develop data quality checks and approval workflows, and make website upgrades
- Quality assurance: Develop test plans and test cases, and provide test automation
Longer-term measures may be necessary to shore up existing data and reporting platforms and calculation engines. The outcome of these measures would be quicker turnaround with reduced manual intervention, and greater confidence in the reports’ accuracy.
