U.S.-based fintech Broadridge Financial announced last week it has formed a new partnership with data collaboration firm Workiva to combine its conventional and next-generation digital delivery of regulatory and shareholder communications and distribution capabilities with the Workiva Wdesk cloud-based platform.
According to Broadridge, Workiva customers will soon be able to securely send SEC Forms 10-K and proxy statements directly to Broadridge for design, printing, and distribution for required shareholder communications. While sharing more details about the partnership, Marty Vanderploeg, CEO of Workiva, stated:
“Our alliance with Broadridge combines the power of our Wdesk platformwith the world’s leading investor communications company. Our partnership will help our customers improve security, save time and reduce risk in their SEC and shareholder reporting processes.”
Dorothy Flynn, President of Broadridge Corporate Issuer Solutions, also commented:
“The strategic alliance with Workiva builds on Broadridge’s commitment to drive the next generation of regulatory communications and to provide corporate issuers with end-to-end integrated solutions ranging from SEC filings to shareholder communications to addressing corporate governance needs.”
Broadridge went on to add that the integration will be available in the first quarter of 2019.
