For securities which are unit trusts, authorised representatives of issuers can generate and distribute a periodic statement for investors holding a security/unit as at the end of a financial year. The statements contain the transaction history and performance of the investment over the financial year selected.
Once generated, the representative can view a PDF document containing all the statements to be issued. Upon review, if their is missing or incorrect data, the data can be updated and the reports regenerated as often as required. Once satisfied, the system allows the representative to email the reports to all security/unit holders whose email is recorded. For security/unit holders whose email is not recorded, the system generates an additional PDF document containing the statements for these holders for posting or other action by the issuer.
