ConceptONE Offers Regulatory Enterprise Risk Management Solution for AIFMDs Annex IV

New York, NY (PRWEB) July 01, 2013

ConceptONE, LLC, a leading provider of risk analytics, data management and regulatory reporting solutions to the investment management industry, is pleased to announce the expansion of its Reg ERM platform to the European Unions (EU) Alternative Investment Fund Management Directive (AIFMD). ConceptONEs holistic approach to regulatory reporting incorporates the multi-discipline expertise of risk and data management, operational infrastructure, and global regulatory proficiency, providing clients with the requisite platform to meet the challenge that AIFMD reporting presents.

ConceptONEs Annex IV solution is a logical extension of the firms efforts to support similar regulatory reporting mandates already in place in the United States, including the Securities and Exchange Commissions (SEC) Form PF, and the Commodity Futures Trading Commissions (CFTC) CPO-PQR. ConceptONE, has facilitated the successful completion of hundreds of these filings and is in a unique position to assist investment management firms in meeting the nuanced and comprehensive AIFMD reporting requirements as they are finalized by the EU and its Member States. Based on the most recent Consultation issued by European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA), we expect Annex IV reporting to commence no later than January 31, 2014. While many of the specific details of AIFMD enforcement will unfold over the coming months and quarters, it is a matter of near-certainty that the Directive will impose yet another substantial reporting burden on nearly all established alternative investment firms, for which the introductory deadline is fast-approaching. ConceptONE has anticipated these developments and built its regulatory and risk reporting offerings in such a way as to ensure the fluid integration of AIFMD into operational workflows, including, but not limited to, US regulatory reporting. The firm has an optimized, holistic solution, which addresses the myriad set of reporting challenges confronting alternative investment managers. These challenges are likely to grow over time as investors and regulators seek greater transparency and firmer assurances of soundness of operation.

We believe that the only effective way to approach the formidable challenge presented by multi-jurisdictional regulatory and other reporting, is to offer clients a RegERM solution that facilitates the development, implementation and maintenance of a system to align all of their third-party reporting, said Gary S. Kaminsky, ConceptONEs Managing Director, Global Regulatory and Compliance and a former SEC Enforcement Attorney. Most funds are still working on defining robust Form PF reporting procedures. But fund managers who are not addressing AIFMD issues assertively may be placing avoidable difficulties upon themselves said ConceptONE CEO Mike Rosen. Our experience and analysis strongly suggests that ALL of these enterprises need to start looking at, planning for, and working on AIFMD immediately or in the very near future. Our systems and processes are designed to remove enormous resource allocation and financial burdens from our clients. We stand ready to work with those impacted to attack these challenges efficiently, comprehensively and in a cost-efficient manner said Rosen. We look forward to the opportunity to share our thoughts on the implications of AIFMD, and the entire regulatory/investor reporting landscape with interested parties at their earliest convenience.
