SIX Financial Information’s Corporate Actions Reports Service (“CARS”) provides advance notifications of events taking place on specific portfolios. This allows clients to plan ahead and to cut down on the number of potentially missed announcements. CARS provides customers with a highly flexible tool and reports can be provided in a number of different formats. The service monitors an agreed number of event types and outputs an agreed number of data fields, ensuring that you receive only data that is relevant to your needs. CARS is delivered to clients in a flat (csv) file and combines instrument identifiers with human-readable information. This allows the report to be either uploaded easily into workflow systems or opened as a simple spreadsheet for manual processing.
