Increasingly stringent regulatory requirements mandate that asset managers monitor and report any breach in a threshold of ownership of the share capital or voting rights of a given issuer. But calculating percentage ownership creates a significant challenge due to the complexity of rules, high volume of disclosures, and the availability of accurate data on outstanding shares.

Thomson Reuters data includes 15 different types of total shares and total voting rights, allowing you to monitor your positions by providing an accurate denominator. In addition, we provide a comprehensive set of reference data integral to the numerator calculation process. Our data helps you meet the challenges presented by globally diverse regulations relating to Major, Short, Takeover and Industry Specific disclosure rules and thresholds. 

Our Shareholding Disclosures alllows you to monitor the threshold of ownership of a given issuer by providing you with accurate, quick and reliable access to:
