Search mask Corporate Actions

The search function performs a limitation of the corporate actions to be selected by means of a timeframe. The definition of the timeframe depends on the type of measure and is as follows:

  • Income: Ex-day (ED007)
  • Conversions: Ex-day (UD025) as well as conversion period (UD016)
  • Capital changes: Ex-day (KD018) as well as subscription period (KD014)
  • General meetings: HV/GV date (HD008)
  • Final maturities: Maturity date (VD009)

As a matter of course the relevant query profile for the five segments within wmView can also be used for a targeted search for a particular corporate event of an instrument.

Besides the search criteria the WMACCESS user can also select the order of the following search results. The hit list can be sorted by the relevant date in ascending order (EX-day, HV/GV date, maturity date, conversion or subscription period) or by type of measure (action).

Search mask Corporate Actions. Each checkbox defines the inclusion / exclusion of a measure type in the search for corporate actions for the desired period.
