Many Investment Managers find it extremely challenging viewing consistent, transparent investor-level information held within platform sub-registers. Data, when it is available, is provided at inconsistent levels and content, and variable degrees of data quality.
This makes it hard to aggregate information across platforms and internal registers for compliance and sales reporting. This therefore leads to an onerous operational overhead for firms to comply with FCA regulatory requirements.
Sales teams are similarly affected - significant time is spent attempting to mine investor level information from many different sources resulting in poor analytics on the current investor base to support sales efforts. Solving this problem internally typically requires high levels of investment and technical expertise that many Investment Managers don't possess in-house.

Built specifically for the Investment Management sector, Kinaesis Clarity "Know Your Register" (KYR) provides Investment Managers with the capability to view all their Investor holdings information, from all sources, on one single dashboard.
Our service delivery model allows everyone in your organisation to have a specifically tailored user experience depending on their individual role, via graphically defined dashboards and drill-downs.
Your compliance team can also review liquidity, concentration and exposure risk, whilst your sales, account management and marketing teams can undertake trend analysis of significant subscriptions and redemptions, allowing them to target specific IFAs for additional sales activity.
Availability across a range of mobile platforms gives users outside of the office access to up to date information about IFAs and their holdings. Advanced self-service reporting using the latest technologies, also allows users to create their own “what if” scenarios, graphical outputs and detailed analysis.
The “Register Summary” dashboard shows an overview of all activity within the time period selected (i.e. Month, Quarter or Year). The user is able to use the sophisticated and instantaneous dashboard analysis capabilities to further filter or cross-filter by Fund and / or register type. From here, further analysis is available using the detailed drilldowns to Fund, Platform and Investor reports.
The enrichment process during the data population brings in significant additional information around underlying IFA’s. This data is then additionally cross referenced with other sources to provide a much fuller picture of the IFA.
From this data, we are able to not only plot where an IFA is based, but also the size of its holding and whether there have been any significant transactions within any defined period.
This is shown by default, at county level, but the user can drill down to town and then to individual IFA. The size and depth of colour of each plot demonstrates both the size of holding and activity.
Geoplots are provided and they cover Holdings, Subscriptions and Redemptions as standard.
Concentration, Exposure and Liquidity Risk:
The standard report also provides a breakdown of IFA concentration risk at a high level. More detailed analysis is also provided at IFA and Share Class level, which allows for the differentiation in types of holder.
Insights – Correlation and Forecasting:
One of the many benefits of having consistent, trustworthy data is the ability to run sophisticated analytics for better insight into Investor behaviour.
"Know Your Register" insights functionality provides Investment Managers with the ability to identify clusters of investors transacting in a similar manner, over time. This can be due to a number of factors, but ultimately allows sales teams to identify “leaders” in this cluster behaviour.
In addition, with the historical data available in the system, sales teams can predict likely future investment patterns, for investors with different levels of variability.
Kinaesis liaise closely with your operational team and the external parties who hold the sub-registers on your behalf, to obtain all the necessary initial input data and subsequent monthly data required by us. This data is then enriched through our investor matching engine using additional information from the UK, Jersey, Guernsey and Isle of Man FCA Registers, GeoLocation Services and Companies House. Following this, there is a monthly data quality review process to ensure that all data is matched and mapped correctly, before consumption by end users.
All data is accessed through an analytical model, with Microsoft Power BI providing the visualisation capabilities via its rich and intuitive front end. Historical data is loaded to client requirements and held online to permit trend and forecasting analysis. This ultimately facilitates the reporting of geoplots, risk assessments, targeted marketing and other IFA focused activities.
Our technology platform is delivered through a scalable, highly secure service model, hosted by Microsoft who are fully ISO 27001:2015, CSA STAR and CDSA Content Protection and Security Standard Certified.
