Envision Financial Systems and U.S. Bank Global Fund Services have collaborated to bring financial intermediaries a new approach to managing mutual-fund-only investor accounts. Traditionally, intermediaries have either opened and held these accounts directly with mutual fund families—and suffered business inefficiencies and lack of control. Or, they’ve been forced to “go to conventional brokerage” with accounts unsuited to conventional brokerage’s fees and complexity. FundKeeper is an alternative to both these options. FundKeeper integrates with intermediaries’ existing software to provide comprehensive, centralized account management—with the potential to change shareholder servicing from a cost center into a new revenue stream.

What is FundKeeper?

FundKeeper is a mutual fund platform that can deliver to a broker dealer—from a single servicing point—all services currently provided at the mutual fund family level. Essentially, Fund Keeper consolidates existing direct-at-fund accounts onto a single platform, which is branded for the broker dealer. In this way, FundKeeper enables the broker dealer to execute on new accounts, suitability and compliance, commissions, level load, web access, statements and more—in an single, automated way across all fund families. FundKeeper leverages omnibus accounts to eliminate multiple contacts points and data sources at fund families.
