Management Information

Participating STAR members are required to provide MI that will form the basis of their accreditation. This will enable STAR to gather information that will help customer transfer journey time expectations to be set.

STAR’s current focus is collecting Initial MI that will provide a view of a firms current performance. This reporting will focus on those transfers that have been initiated “electronically”.  “Electronically” is defined as initiated using an electronic messaging set (not, for example by email) at a portfolio level or asset manager transfer instruction.

Further Full MI requirements have been documented that allows the reporting of all in scope transfers, at a level that best reflects an individual organisation’s performance within the Transfer Journey.  The STAR Steering Group has agreed a checkpoint in Q1 2022 to consider the Full MI.    

These requirements are set out in the following MI documents.

STAR manages the administration of third-party access to the portal, rather than the member firm. This allows for a smoother transition for the member firm and allowing immediate access to the supplier to submit MI on their behalf. STAR will hold an approved list of users per supplier, which will be allocated to your account at the point of registration. This ensures each ‘external’ user has the same access across all their client accounts. Supplier access is restricted and they do not have any ability to see any company information for any client other than what they submit on your behalf. You as the member control access for any other users within your organisation. We will include a more detailed description about the user access on your welcome email and it is clearly defined as part of the User Guide.
