Corporate actions may not be the most exciting function in the back office, but their importance is growing in the front and middle office. This is especially true in volatile market conditions, such as when the Covid-19 pandemic hit and thousands of dividends were canceled or postponed, which had never happened before.

Occurrences like these can indicate the challenges an issuer faces, or can be used as insight for other purposes, such as governance.
