“With Linedata Compliance, we have complete confidence in the controls we apply to our clients’ regulatory and statutory constraints. All our funds are automatically monitored with a full audit trail. Passive breaches are managed using structured workflows reflecting each client’s unique processes, ensuring they are able to satisfy their mandates. This way, using daily post-trade compliance, we are proactive in managing our breaches up front as well as mitigating breaches that could have a material impact.”
Jean-François Fortemps, managing director, MUGC Luxembourg Management Company


ESG Strategy Compliance Monitoring (SCM): Linedata’s latest offering combines Arabesque’s ESG data and scoring with flexible rule packs, mitigating greenwashing concerns.

Data Management Service (DMS): Linedata’s DMS integrates the ‘fuel’ that feeds the compliance engine, addressing a significant workflow pain point, reducing risk and ensuring firms’ ability to leverage critical systems like their automated compliance solutions.

Crypto currency: Linedata onboarded the first of several multi-asset crypto clients.

Linedata Analytics Service: Machine-learning models use clients’ own data to identify transactional data anomalies. Models deliver continuous insights to processes, pre-emptively forecasting operational failures and spurring preventative actions. To mitigate compliance breaches, the service applies ML techniques to historical breach data, identifying the resolution pathway by analyzing historical trends, reducing escalation time, and improving stakeholder service.






Integrated business intelligence: Linedata is creating alerting tools to interact with meaningful, accessible time-series data. Directly integrated into Linedata Compliance, this business intelligence uses visualizations to convey broader compliance “health” and early warning signs of risk.






Since 2020, Linedata has embraced microservices and the cloud. Linedata Compliance is designed to support interoperable portfolio compliance, which clients say is easily scalable and integrates quickly with data and systems. The company has responded to the explosion of ESG funds by adding to the product new offerings for ESG monitoring, combining with Arabesque’s ESG data to address buy-side concerns about greenwashing.
