DIAMOS-F for depositaries

Your best-practice package for depositaries

The duties of a depository include both technical settlement and safekeeping of investment assets and performing a variety of control functions.

When performing these control functions, each depositary chooses which audit model to follow based on its strategic orientation. Depositaries can choose the basic audit model (called model 1 in Germany), which gives them access to the investment management back office systems, or the extended audit model (model 2 in Germany) to use their own (shadow) accounting system.

DIAMOS-F offers a fund accounting system already pre-configured to conform with best practices under model 2. With its existing interfaces, this model guarantees optimal integration into depositaries’ back office system landscapes. The solution is based on many years of expertise in all relevant fields, and offers an optimized framework for lean, cost-efficient and audit-proof processes between depositaries and investment management companies.

  • Price supply interfaces (in & out) for various asset types
  • Market conformity and corporate action checks
  • Market data reporting
  • Fully automated data supply from all relevant sources
  • Audit proof booking and reporting
  • Documentation of violations
  • Saving auditing data and results
  • Interface control and fund accounting
  • NAV validation, calculation, reconciliation, release, customer reporting

With the EU-wide harmonization (OGAW V/UCITS V guideline) of national legislation, and efforts to implement uniform EU-wide framework conditions, the fundamental control functions performed by depositaries do not differ widely from one another. This means the DIAMOS depositary solution is flexible enough to apply in various jurisdictions and can be expanded according to client specifications as needed.

  • All DIAMOS solutions are based on our proven DIAMOS system platform, with a flexible architecture and configurable
    interfaces. This speeds up system integration and allows functional scalability at any time. Basic functions – such as 
    multi-lingual / multi-currency capabilities and 24/7 system accessibility – are available at any time.
  • Short implementation periods ensured by tested procedures from our system integration experts
  • System deployment includes “ready to use“ standard configuration
  • Future-proof investment that consistently employs established open standards
