UCITS Eligibility Classifier
Assisting compliance tasks with NLP
When applied to Undertakings for Collective Investment in Transferable Securities (UCITS) funds’ prospectuses, the UCITS Eligibility Classifier can be used to speed up fund managers’ compliance checks.
This solution works by selecting sentences from the fund’s prospectus that answer the conditions of criteria outlined by the CSSF. This enables automatic tracking of evidence and the storage of proof for decision making and auditing purposes while the end user retains the final say on the classification.
Key features of our UCITS Eligibility Classifier product
Reduced workload: Containing, on average, around 150 pages, the manual processing of a prospectus can be time consuming. Our model analyzes a prospectus much faster than the human equivalent procedure, increasing the efficiency and freeing up valuable time.
Minimized errors: Due to the length of documents and the different interpretation of the regulation by reviewers, the manual process is error prone. This product offers a standardized process, automated by a pre-trained model that makes consistent decisions, thereby reducing errors and removing human bias from the process.
Hybrid system: Leveraging the power of “with”, the product accelerates the compliance task by providing a subset of sentences to the human decision maker. The four-eye compliance check is augmented with technology.
User friendly interface: The product is packaged to ensure optimized usage. The user friendly interface enables the processing of multiple prospectuses one after the other, stores the results in a centralized database, and allows confirmation or rejection with comments seamlessly.
Traceability: The solution is integrated with a database of prospectus documents that should be assessed. After classification, all metadata (including relevant sections extracted by the algorithm), the user’s confirmation, a timestamp, and any comments are documented and stored. This decision trail can be used for auditing and compliance purposes.
AI can help optimize regulatory processes
With the help of Natural Language Processing (NLP) and machine learning, the UCITS Eligibility Classifier can assess whether a prospectus is, for instance, compliant with the following criteria:
- The Law of 17 December 2010 or the Directive 2009/65/EC; and
- A limit of 10% investment in transferable securities or money market instruments.
NLP enables the machine to read and understand human language and subsequently derive meaning from it. Our UCITS Eligibility Classifier product has ‘learnt’ the linguistic pattern of relevant texts for UCITS eligibility from a training on official prospectuses.
