ARC is the insider management solution from HWC. ARC allows you to centrally control your permanent and project insider lists, devolving responsibility across the business where required.
ARC is web based software, securely hosted and all your data is held here in the UK.
ARC includes everything you'd expect to help you comply with the Market Abuse Regulations:
Available on desktop, laptop, tablet and smartphone, you and your users can use ARC on any device, anywhere, anytime.
ARC has been developed with an eye to the ever changing regulatory environment. The underlying architecture has been specifically designed to enable rapid reaction to any changes in the requirements for the data that needs to be captured.
As a hosted software solution, any core updates, upgrades and enhanced features are included in the licence fee.
As well as your permanent insider list, ARC can handle confidential and project insider lists. There are no limits to the number of projects you can manage and converting a confidential list to a project insider list is as simple as changing the status, which triggers all the relevant workflow processes to request acknowledgements etc. automatically. Completed lists are simply toggled to inactive and all data is held for the required five year period.
The project owner/list manager functionality lets you devolve ownership of projects throughout the business. A project owner/list manager has access to the software so they can create and update project lists as required. There are workflow options to let you decide on an approval process that's right for you.
We configure your request to deal form and process in line with your way of working. The timers around granting clearance and time to trade can be configured to match your needs, based on the exchange they intend to trade on.
ARC holds nearly 80 email templates covering the full range of activity, from requesting clearance to confirmation of which project list you're on or notification that a closed period is coming up. Emails can be automated but you can also create ad hoc emails to be sent to any combination of employees in the database.
You can also write on-screen message prompts and make them available to any combination of employees.
ARC gives you total control and view of all your insider communications and all messages are tracked in the audit trail. You can view all messages (whether on screen or actual emails) that have been sent, check if they've been sent, undelivered, opened and bounced.
Every action in ARC is captured in the audit trail and can be reported on. We supply a set of prebuilt reports, including the required MAR reports, to get you started and a report builder tool so you can create your own. Reports can be saved so you can use them again as needed.
