Over the past decades, the landscape of the investment fund industry has been reshaping itself, adapting to the evolving needs and expectations of investors and distributors. Along with that shift have come changes in the way the transfer agents operate, organise, manage risk, implement regulations and interact with other stakeholders of the investment funds value chain.

This training is a continuation of the "Transfer agent: processes, risks and controls - Part 1" module as it will focus more specifically on the remaining three out of the five activities related to transaction management: transaction input and processing,transaction reporting and cash reconciliation and settlement.
It will also describe the main processes related to fund events, shareholder services and fund distribution.
Lastly, you will be provided with a view on the main operational risks you might face while performing transfer agency activities.
