Delta Data Software today announced that Edward Jones has selected Delta Data's FundViews service to maintain operational rule changes to the mutual fund security master tables within their brokerage platform.
FUNDViews is a Web-based service from Delta Data that delivers and enhances the usability of mutual fund rules-based compliance data available through DTCC's redesigned Mutual Fund Profile Service II ("Profile"). Profile was reengineered to help solve the longstanding issue of disseminating vital information about fund securities and has become the dynamic central source for rules-based processing and information. Since it's reengineering, Profile has achieved an accuracy rate of 99.9% across some 140 fund groups, representing more than 19,000 securities, who provide critical operational data for some 120 distributor firms.
Edward Jones will use FUNDViews to receive Profile data and track changes for mutual fund securities on its platform. "With FUNDViews, we have an efficient and cost-effective way to track the accuracy of information provided through Profile by our mutual fund partners," said Lisa Klassen, Group Leader, Edward Jones. "The notification of daily changes and future-dated changes and the comprehensive audit trail on all rule changes are key benefits of the FUNDViews service that are critical in maintaining our security master tables."
"We are pleased to add Edward Jones to our growing list of FUNDViews clients," said Don Beck, CEO, Delta Data. "We applaud the fund industry's work to achieve unprecedented data quality in the Profile service and its acceptance by the broker/dealer community that has made it the de facto standard repository it was designed to be, improving operational processing efficiencies for the good of the industry and fund shareholders."
