DIAMOS-CeF

Your share and shareholder registry management solution for closed-end funds

Fund managers face increased challenges when dealing with closed-end funds and in particular with mutual funds. Due to the large amount of shares and number of shareholders involved in many mutual funds, tasks by far exceed conceptual design, prospectus publication requirements and fund administration. Manual procedures and Excel-based solutions and workarounds often require increased work force and can lead to operational risks.

Through its unique flexibility, the system enables reliable coverage of current and new requirements and regulations such as the AIFM Directive. DIAMOS-CeF helps you set new standards in providing professional, high-quality and transparent services to investors while increasing innovation and building competitive advantage.
