As the securities industry moves further towards total de-materialization, new avenues of communication with affected populations involved in a corporate action or related event are becoming more relevant.
Providing a web interface for holders to respond to an event allows for seamless access to terms and requirements, a facility to enter instructions as well as a higher level of accuracy by recording all responses in an automated and systemic digital environment.
Websites should be customizable to each transaction and include all relevant documents posted for easy access to holders. The layout of site should be friendly and familiar to the shareholder with the aim of promoting a higher rate of participation. The site should also provide regular reporting to your team of all participation and be easy to update in case the event materially changes.
