Broadridge Financial Solutions, Inc. (BR) today announced that Credential Securities Inc.'s conversion to a self-clearing IIROC (Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Canada ) brokerage firm will be powered by Broadridge's Dataphile securities processing and advisor desktop platform.
Broadridge's unique, customizable and scalable solution provides Credential with greater control over their online and full service businesses and facilitates their continued growth.
Credential's move to self-clearing provides greater control and more flexibility to expand their investment product offerings to their partners.
"Self-clearing provides Credential with a competitive advantage by enhancing our service offering to clients and maximizing revenue opportunities," said Doce Tomic, President and CEO, Credential. "Broadridge brings deep bench strength in brokerage technology services and domain expertise along with an already robust client base, which provides the necessary level of scale from day one - they provide their expertise so we can execute on ours."
Broadridge's solution can be deployed in its entirety or in key strategic components on a turnkey basis.
"Broadridge is committed to partnering with our clients and providing them with the technology and processing solutions that will help them grow their businesses. Credential is a great example of a company evolving their business model to gain a competitive advantage," said Michael Dignam, President, Broadridge, Canada.
