The IntegraLynx | CTI Cost Disclosures Engine enables Asset Owners and Asset Managers to consume large-scale datasets from various sources, perform cost calculations, and allocate those costs on a look-through basis through multi-tier investment hierarchies to client accounts.
The output is company-branded CTI Cost Disclosures ready for dissemination.
IntegraLynx delivers an end-to-end automated solution, in one platform. Reducing operational risk, and helping your organisation to comply with the reporting standards in a timely manner.
Our solution enables quick and agile compliance with the standards outlined in the PLSA's Cost Transparency Initiative (CTI) - a set of templates and tools which together form a framework investors can use to receive standardised cost and charges information from asset managers..
This framework presents a significant data engineering challenge to Asset Owners/Managers in the UK. They must gather cost data from multiple internal and external data sources, combine this data with investment holdings (often involving multiple tiers/levels), and then calculate the costs incurred by each client. Ultimately, this involves processing millions of rows of data and creating client-specific disclosures.

IntegraLynx’s built-in workflow manager automates data collection and follow-on processing swiftly. A user-friendly drag-and-drop interface enables business users to import/validate/enrich input data from any file format (including .pdf).
CTI requires costs collected from internal and external sources to be allocated to investors. IntegraLynx performs the look-through cost allocation, pushing costs up through multi-level investment structures, to determine each investor's exposure to various costs on a daily basis.
An easy-to-use template builder allows for any customisation required through a simple user interface. Business users can add and alter company logos and colour branding as required. Ensuring CTI Cost Disclosures are consistent with other annual communications provided to clients.
Cost disclosures require information on a number of entities, including investors, internal investment vehicles, and external service providers. IntegraLynx allows business users to easily extend the out-of-box data model to store additional static/transactional data bespoke to their organisation/products.
A roles-based User Access Management (UAM) framework allows for targeted system lockdown. Data change is permissioned and subject to a four-eyes checks. All system processing is recorded in an extensive event log.
