Quantifying the Risks in Corporate Actions

B.I.S.S. Research White paper

Commissioned by Vermeg

Nearly everyone in the world’s capital markets knows that there are significant risks associated in corporate actions processing. Indeed all suppliers with a product in the corporate actions space will say in their marketing and sales documents, that their product reduces risks. What is lacking is what risks are being reduced, from what and by how much!

This white paper commissioned by Vermeg attempts to define the universe of risks in corporate actions and begin to quantify individual operational risks and arrive at an overall risk assessment.
