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.

December 19, 2019 | ARTICLE | BY KELLY LYNCH Advisors serving clients investing solely in mutual funds often prefer to do this business direct rather than through brokerage, despite the operational and regulatory inefficiencies inherent in doing so.

September 26, 2019 | ARTICLE | BY KELLY LYNCH They say that no good deed goes unpunished. For many registered reps with only a Series 6 license (the classic example is a rep working in an insurer-affiliated b/d), their daily experience of the maxim is when they help clients model out a simple, fund-based asset allocation and then construct a portfolio out of mutual funds.
