FIRST - Financial Instruments Reporting Services Tool

The brand new multi-functional reporting tool called FIRST – Financial Instruments Reporting Services Tool – is our answer to all ongoing issuer obligations in terms of OAM, filing documents to the financial regulatory and disseminating information to the public.

An integrated tool

FIRST is the latest solution in multi-functional reporting, filing, and storage of documents.

Via FIRST you can simultaneously distribute announcements to the market, to the Officially Appointed Mechanism and to the regulator, all through a single portal.

Advantages of using FIRST

  • A single portal for publishing, disseminating and filing of regulated information
  • Faster and easier completion of your reporting obligations via a drag&drop function and an automated ISIN scan of all documents 
  • Status tracking of your publications and view of all past submissions and announcements
  • Access the platform directly or pass control to your agent or law firm
  • Fully compliant with all regulatory requirements
  • Available 24/7

FIRST addresses the industry’s challenges

FIRST allows you to fully comply with your three reporting requirements under the Transparency Law:

  • Publish regulated information and disseminate any other announcements
  • Make information available for storage in the Officially Appointed Mechanism (OAM)
  • File regulated information with the financial regulator

A cutting-edge technology

Filing regulated information is time sensitive and the involved stress can lead to human errors. To minimise the chances of mistakes, FIRST performes a document scan of all uploaded files in search of ISIN codes. This technologically-advanced procedure adds an additional layer to reassuring that the information being reported corresponds to your securities.
 

Using FIRST is easy
