Corporate Actions Overview


Simple Fund 360 now removes many of the friction points associated with processing Corporate Actions. The dashboard will alert you to which ASX Corporate Actions have taken place during the year and provide the required calculations and data to action these.

Simple Fund 360 receives and stores the corporate action data received from the ASX. Clicking process will pre-fill the Corporate Action calculator screen.

Simple Corporate Actions such as Returns of Capital, Share Splits and Consolidations require no further user input and can simply click process.  Some more complex corporate actions will require you to enter additional information such as the number of units purchased in share purchase plans.

The Corporate Action calculator will currently support:

 

 

The following Corporate Action types will currently display information only and the calculator screens will be made available in a future release:

  • Attaching Options
  • Calls
  • Merger / Takeover
  • Options – Exercise or Lapse
  • Share Buyback

Manual corporate actions can still be completed. See Corporate Actions (Manual) for more information.

The Corporate Actions screen is a Fund view screen - if a corporate action is applicable to more than one fund you will need to process this for each fund individually.

 

Corporate Actions Dashboard:

The dashboard is the landing page for the corporate actions screen and provides you with all the information you need to manage a fund's corporate actions.

  • A notifications system using ASX information will display announcements that need to be actioned;
  • Manual corporate actions can be processed from this screen;
  • Existing corporate actions can be viewed and deleted/reversed from the dashboard;
  • Corporate actions that have already been processed manually or are not applicable to the fund (for example share purchase plans not taken up) can be ignored and removed from the screen.

Corporate Action Required


Under the Status column, the icon Process will appear for recent ASX announcements that apply to the fund. Selecting the icon will present the edit screen, with pre-filled information allowing you to quickly process the action.
