Franklin Templeton Investments will use Silverfinch to address look-through data requests resulting from Solvency II capital adequacy regulation
Franklin Templeton Investments has retained Dublin-based financial regulatory compliance and data utility services provider Silverfinch to address look-through data requests generated as a result of Solvency II regulation, according to a Silverfinch official.
Solvency II is the European capital adequacy reporting regulation taking effect in January 2016.
"What's concerning is the number of those in the asset management industry still unsure as to how they will deal with the hundreds, potentially thousands, of requests for very granular look-through data from their insurer clients," says John Dowdall, managing director, Silverfinch. "Unless asset managers can provide the necessary information, in the right format and within regulatory deadlines, these insurers will be in great difficulty.
"Forward-thinking asset managers like Franklin Templeton are increasingly alive to the seismic impact this legislation is going to create," he adds.
In November, Silverfinch partnered with Luxembourg-based Fundsquare to build a Solvency II look-through and data utility.
