Timely and accurate tracking of corporate actions and dividend payments makes a substantial difference in your company’s or your client’s bottom line. Always thorough and reliable, Mergent’s Corporate Actions data feed provides the latest information on over 30,000 dividend-paying stocks and mutual funds. Coverage includes the full spectrum of domestic listed and announced Canadian issues – plus significant global securities and their ADRs.

No announcements are transmitted to customers without being verified to the original source documents. Plus, our staff has the ability to transmit over 4,000 payments in one business day. This service is the most comprehensive in terms of coverage, with more mutual fund announcements than any other source.
