What services does Total Compliance Management offer?
DFIN is leveraging two existing, proven systems to offer Total Compliance Management—ArcDigital for content delivery and ArcPro for content creation. These are integrated systems that feed common finalized information. The DFIN service team manages all program fluidity (fund lineups, new products, product-to-fund relationships, filings, book combos), confirms validity of linking and ensures final versions are all correct. 

ArcDigital is DFIN’s multi-channel content delivery solution. It provides access to DFIN’s digital asset repository to house your compliance materials, which can then be distributed via eDelivery and automated workflows, or ordered via DFIN’s intuitive storefront. DFIN is also a market leader, providing web hosting of graphic-rich documents—with no reformatting required—to more than 200 sites for insurance and asset managers. DFIN’s ArcDigital will help modernize and solve 30e-3 and 498A delivery challenges.

We service over 10,000 funds and 2,000 variable products, heavily investing in it to automate and update regularly.
