The system provides investment companies easy access to exchange trading data with more than 230 distributors using FundWeb Transfer, thus helping the investment companies to expand the client base for their mutual fund products.
Likewise, distributors can easily exchange trading data with more than 90 investment companies using FundWeb Transfer, which enables the distributors to increase their line-up of mutual funds to cater for the needs of beneficiaries.
2. A solution easy to implement
FundWeb Transfer is a web-based SaaS solution offering system functions operated and managed at data centers. Since this is web-based, there is no need for clients to back up data or update the version of software/systems, thus minimizing the burden of system administration. In addition, FundWeb Transfer only requires office PCs with Microsoft Windows instead of special terminal devices.
3. Effectively streamlining back-office operations
By connecting trading information online between investment companies and distributors, FundWeb Transfer makes their communication quicker, easier and more convenient with better accuracy. This also prevents operational accidents by monitoring subscriptions on a date on which non-acceptance of subscription is set for each mutual fund and checking inadequate trading data.
By leveraging FundWeb Transfer, the users can carry out their back-office operations efficiently and accurately even if the number of trading funds increases.
4. Adoption of STP with other financial IT solutions
By using FundWeb Transfer, the users can gain additional straight-through processing (STP) by connecting with NRI's BESTWAY/JJ (a mutual fund account management system), STAR-IV (a comprehensive back-office system for securities companies), T-STAR/TX (a back-office solution for asset managers and trust banks) and other solutions, thus reducing their manual operations and increasing the accuracy of data.
