Bloomberg Unveils Covered Funds Identification Tool

Bloomberg has introduced the first tool in the marketplace to help banks and other financial institutions identify covered funds under the provisions of the Volcker Rule. More than a dozen banks are using Bloomberg's Covered Funds Identification (CFID) tool to automate the process of detecting and tagging covered funds ahead of an upcoming compliance deadline. CFID uses nearly 30 data fields to automatically extract relevant details from offering documents to classify securities against the requirements of the Volcker Rule covered funds regulations. CFID also provides details about ownership structure, deal type, tranche type, and collateral, as well as an industry-defined decision tree that addresses the Volcker Rule covered fund requirements. When one of more than 200,000 securities incorporated in the tool is viewed on the Bloomberg Professional service, a tag appears indicating whether the security "is a covered fund," "is not a covered fund" or "legal review required." The tool can also help buy-side firms discover market liquidity and price discrepancies for covered funds.
