Grow, Innovate, Integrate!

Bring issuers closer to exchanges

Our targets for next year in terms of deal numbers are even more ambitions than this year. We will be working more closely with regulators and exchanges – something we have been preparing for throughout the year. It will allow us to offer our clients an even easier and speedier way to issue their securities, and also help the expansion of our services to the post listing environment.

In 2022 we will be supporting issuers with their ongoing reporting obligations, including regulatory news items and annual reports. Issuers kept asking us to give them a single tool to manage the whole lifecycle of their securities – well, it’s here now J!

ESG reporting

We will be rolling out our ESG reporting solution allowing issuers to use their ScribeStar environment to collaborate, produce, externally assure, and publish their sustainability reports in line with best practices and standards.

Our support for green and sustainable securities

All through 2022 ScribeStar will support the drive towards more environmentally and socially conscious public markets with special green pricing for our services for all transactions that clearly support the transition to a more sustainable economy.

These can be green and sustainable bonds, primary and secondary issues of shares by companies that bring forward sustainable technology and innovation (e.g. renewable energy, battery production, clean transport, sustainable agriculture, green buildings…), and any other investment vehicles or structured products with robust ESG integration. Expect a separate announcement on this in the coming weeks!
