AQMetrics Limited

The Challenge

Regulatory reporting and risk monitoring are now both considered high priority for most firms in the financial industry. Yet despite the growing reliance on quality data, analytics and insights to remain compliant in both of these areas, the tendency is still for them to be run on separate systems and monitored individually. Firms that are still collating their data in this manner are not only making it more time consuming and difficult to respond to regulatory queries, but are also missing out on rich data insights which could prove beneficial to their business as a whole. We take a unified approach in this respect and provide a consolidated platform that delivers data management, risk profiling and monitoring, compliance workflows and reports all in one cloud based solution. The AQMetrics platform seamlessly integrates multiple sources of data into a common golden data standard. A central, ‘golden data’ source means all your information is available in one place, making responding to regulatory queries a much simpler task.

The Solution

AQMetrics enables simple, reliable and cost effective risk management and regulatory compliance through the use of technology. Our cloud platform uses smart technology to integrate risk and regulatory solutions, allowing our clients stay compliant with existing and emerging regulations. We are focused on delivering trusted solutions to leading asset managers, investment managers, and fund administrators globally. The AQMetrics Global Regulatory reporting hub provides regulatory reporting for AIFMD Annex IV, Form PF, CPO-PQR, Form 13F and MiFID II Transaction Reporting (2018).

The AQMetrics cloud platform serves both global fund administrators and the individual asset manager. AQMetrics takes a unified approach for existing and emerging regulations, by providing a consolidated platform to deliver data management, risk profiling and monitoring, compliance workflows and regulatory reporting all in one cloud based solution. The AQMetrics platform seamlessly integrates multiple sources of data into a common golden data standard. By using a common data source, the quality of the regulatory reporting improves and risk insights can be aligned with the regulatory reports.
