Donnelley Financial Solutions Integrates Bloomberg Data to Help Firms Comply with SEC Liquidity Regulations

CHICAGO—(BUSINESS WIRE)—Donnelley Financial Solutions (NYSE: DFIN) and Bloomberg, today announced a joint regulatory reporting solution that integrates Bloomberg’s liquidity data with Donnelley Financial Solutions’ ArcFiling platform to help mutual funds comply with new requirements mandated by the SEC’s liquidity and reporting modernization rules.

“With the integration of our ArcFiling platform and Bloomberg’s Liquidity Assessment tool (LQA), firms can now automate custom monthly reporting for the SEC through the use of innovative techniques in big data and machine learning to provide portfolio-level market data and liquidity risk analytics,” said Eric Johnson, president of Global Investment Markets at Donnelley Financial Solutions.

Cloud-based application, ArcFiling, enables firms to create, package and submit their documents directly to the SEC. The platform is designed to provide firms with a single source for the data, validation and filing capabilities to meet the N-PORT requirement.

Bloomberg’s data includes all three areas of the modernized Form N-PORT filing: reference data, risk data and liquidity, and covers an expansive range of asset classes, including equities, bonds, municipal securities, structured products and more.

“Bloomberg’s multi-disciplinary team is experienced across finance, artificial intelligence and distributed technologies to ensure delivery of accurate and consistent data that when combined with the ArcFiling platform, provides firms with a complete reporting workflow solution," said Naz Quadri, Head of Liquidity Analytics at Bloomberg.
