Notes to editors
AMX centralises, standardises and streamlines the process of investing, making implementation and monitoring more efficient through:
- Reduced duplication of cost, resource and time
- Economies of scale in relationships with other service providers, such as market counterparties, custodians, clearers and prime brokers
- Standardised legal documentation
- Timelier and more accurate reporting through centralised data
- Reduced complexity via standardised infrastructure and a centralised back office.
AMX secures better pricing because of the buying power of the exchange by centralising operating costs, such as custody and administration at the exchange, thereby lowering operating expenses.
AMX also offers enhanced control for investors via an independent risk oversight function and single portfolio interface to centralise and standardise compliance, minimising distractions from the core investment function while providing greater investor confidence.
