SCORPEO selected for PLSA Investment Conference in Edinburgh


SCORPEO Value Capture Programme™ technology creates significant opportunity to increase fund performance and improve returns for Pension Fund beneficiaries.

London – Friday 4 March 2016

SCORPEO, the financial technology company and market leading service provider for capturing value from corporate actions will be showcasing their Value Analysis™ and Value Capture Programme™ at the PLSA Investment Conference in Edinburgh on 9-11 March 2016, services that are designed to help Pension Funds, Asset Managers and Global Custodians.

SCORPEO has created enabling technology to evaluate and capture the intrinsic value available in investment portfolios. “Pension Funds are looking for cost savings and incremental performance gains across the value chain and SCORPEO Value Capture Programme™ provides a unique and transparent platform to capture the value available in corporate actions.” says Chris Barrow, Head of Business Development at SCORPEO.

“SCORPEO is developing a growing reputation as a service provider with compelling products to help tackle the missed value that can arise in corporate action elections. This has undoubtedly become a high profile issue for beneficial owners, investment managers and custodians, and SCORPEO can deliver something of real value to investors.” adds Matt Ruoss (UK CEO).

Pension funds and investment managers seek to maximise returns for beneficiaries whilst minimising risk. SCORPEO helps them achieve this by adding significant revenues whilst providing full transparency throughout the process. Historically capturing value from corporate actions has not always attracted much attention from investors but as SCORPEO Value Analysis™ demonstrates the missed revenues in corporate actions are worth over $1 billion annually in European scrip dividends alone, and this should be a major focus.

Corporate actions are becoming more numerous and complex, requiring investment managers to analyse volumes of documentation and make considered elections to capture the economic value on behalf of their investors. Managing these corporate actions and eliminating sub-optimal decisions is difficult; requiring time, expertise and understanding. However, it is an essential role for investment managers in terms of aligning fiduciary responsibilities and performance so that investors are not disadvantaged. SCORPEO provides the solutions to address these areas and maximise returns.


SCORPEO is an independent FCA registered service provider based in London and Boston that captures and delivers the value embedded in corporate actions for global investors using robust processes and technology. The business was incorporated in 2012 to combine industry leading expertise in corporate actions, operations and technology. For more information please visit:
