CSS Successfully Facilitates Form N-CEN Filings for Clients

NEW YORK — Compliance Solutions Strategies, a leading global RegTech platform that supports financial services firms in navigating complex regulatory requirements, is pleased to announce it has successfully assisted its clients in filing Form N-CEN.

The filings were made on Sept. 13 through Consensus, an award-winning CSS regulatory reporting and filing platform. Clients are also supported by CSS Best Practices, a team of regulatory attorneys, fund accountants, and data specialists who leverage their expertise and industry relationships to deliver comprehensive regulatory solutions, answer client questions, and communicate with regulators.

“We are delighted to have led a successful filing of a leading asset manager with hundreds of mutual funds and over $500 billion in AUM,” said CSS CEO Jim Casella. “The complexity of the filing and its resounding success assures our client base that we are well prepared for live filings of Form N-PORT when they commence in April 2019.”

Form N-CEN replaces Form N-SAR, and requires annual reporting of certain census-type information by registered investment companies to the SEC. Form N-CEN filers must submit their reports in a structured XML data format, which enables the SEC to more effectively collect, aggregate, and analyze the reported data. The compliance date for Form N-CEN was June 1, 2018 for all funds.

CSS will be filing Form N-CEN for numerous clients who continue to face increasing regulatory requirements under the SEC’s Reporting Modernization. Using Consensus, clients can file Form N-CEN and Form N-Port filings to the SEC in the required formats.
