Platform solution for managing mutual funds and exchange traded funds (ETF)

Our multiple series trust platforms provide a cost-effective means of operating a mutual fund or ETF.

A multiple-series trust is an open-end mutual fund authorized to create an unlimited number of series, or separate portfolios, within the trust. Portfolios in the trust enjoy a variety of benefits compared to standalone mutual funds, including lower costs as a result of shared expenses across funds in the trust.

Whether you have an existing fund or are planning to start one, our experts will help you capitalize on the benefits of participating in a series trust.

  • Focus on managing your money, growing assets and maintaining your brand, while the trust’s administrators coordinate service providers, handle board and chief compliance officer (CCO) communication, and serve as trust secretary
  • Access cost-effective means to manage funds with lower overhead due to sharing a board of trustees, CCO, independent public accountant and fund counsel, etc., at pre-negotiated rates
  • Enjoy the simplicity and convenience of having your board of trustees, fund auditors, legal counsel and other service providers already in place

Three tough questions to ask fund administrators

As the landscape of the asset management industry has changed, so has the shape of the fund services industry that serves it. Perhaps the only true constant in asset servicing right now is this: ultimately, the work has to be done.



The benefits of converting to a series trust

Some mutual fund complexes with standalone structures may find greater internal efficiencies and cost savings by adopting a series trust model. In today’s complex compliance and regulatory environment, the professional, dedicated oversight associated with a series trust structure can help to navigate these challenges.
