CSS & aosphere Collaboration Takes Global Threshold Management to the Next Level

Staying informed and responding to changes in shareholding disclosure obligations across multiple jurisdictions is a formidable challenge facing global investment institutions. Since its launch in 2015, Signal – CSS’s shareholding disclosure solution – has grown its roster of clients to include leading hedge funds and global asset managers in Europe and North America. Today, the solution addresses a breadth of requirements including substantial shareholding disclosure and position limit monitoring in addition to compliance with restrictions attached to issuer-specific limits, sensitive industries and takeover panels.

Signal is already the leading rules engine solution for both global ownership threshold management and position limit monitoring, but now, CSS proudly announces its next evolution. On Wednesday, we officially entered a collaboration with aosphere LLP, which allows CSS to leverage the detailed legal memoranda and reports on global shareholder disclosure legislation contained in aosphere’s online legal service Rulefinder Shareholder Disclosure (SD).

This enhancement clearly takes global threshold management to the next level. Through CSS’s collaboration with aosphere, Signal users are assured of accurate disclosure compliance and transparency, incorporating the most comprehensive set of legal data on shareholding disclosure obligations in the market and supplemented by the expertise of CSS’s internal team.
