Insider trading law was tightened up significantly when the new EU Market Abuse Regulation (MAR) entered into force in early July. The increased number of insiders, the larger volume of personal data and the timely documentation of projects – in addition to instructing insiders – immediately present a major challenge to legal departments and compliance managers. In Germany, over 300 issuers are therefore already using INSIDER MANAGER from EQS Group AG to maintain their insider lists securely and conveniently.
The EQS-Insider database is a workplace-independent, web-based solution which meets all the legal obligations under Article 18 MAR. “We have fully aligned INSIDER MANAGER with the requirements of compliance departments and largely automated complex processes. Our customers appreciate this because we are making their day-to-day work easier for them,” says Stephan Däschler, Head of Account Management of EQS Group, who is delighted about the high demand for the database which is optimally integrated into the EQS COCKPIT.
Over 300 companies in Germany and other issuers in the UK, the Netherlands and Italy are now benefiting from the integrated workflow guaranteed by the INSIDER MANAGER – and are playing it safe in every respect: Thanks to the innovative EQS solution, they can work in a private secure cloud which meets the highest data protection requirements.
Verena Fehling, Investor Relations Specialist at Basler AG, says: “The EU Market Abuse Regulation meant we were confronted with completely new challenges – particularly in terms of insider law. Since we want to safely meet these requirements, we opted for INSIDER MANAGER from the EQS Group. We were able to use the tool, which perfectly fits into our platform and is also easy to handle thanks to the intuitive user interface, directly after activation to maintain our insider lists – and when a question did come up, our EQS Customer Advisor was immediately on hand to offer support.”
