Terrapin Provides Insights To Brokers Processing Mutual Funds
The company’s first Industry Perspectives paper discusses the choices managing mutual fund transactions
MINNEAPOLIS, MN., November 15, 2012 — Terrapin Technologies has released the first in a series of “Industry Perspectives” papers that evaluate topics of note for financial services organizations. “Fund Direct Mutual Fund Management” is a review of mutual fund transaction processing options available to bank-owned broker-dealers. The article is free and can be viewed and downloaded at www.terrapintech.com/fund-direct. The series of Industry Perspectives papers is available for subscription at www.terrapintech.com/contact.
The paper provides a description of fund direct mechanisms and compares them to traditional clearing services. “We want to make clear a broker-dealer’s choices for managing the processing of mutual fund transactions,” said Kristefor Lysne, President, Terrapin Technologies. “This paper helps operations managers look at fund direct processing from an independent perspective and ask the right questions.”
Fund direct processing of mutual funds was a subject that generated a robust conversation at a recent roundtable sponsored by Terrapin Technologies. “We came to realize that many back office operations managers may not be aware that options besides clearing houses are available to them. This Industry Perspectives paper is the result,” said Lysne. “In the competitive world of financial services, understanding options is critical to managing costs, margins, and regulatory requirements.”
