Broadridge Financial Solutions, Inc. (BR) has expanded its wealth management and U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) Fiduciary Rule compliance capabilities with the acquisition of M&O Systems, Inc., a leading provider of advisor compensation management solutions that help broker-dealers and wealth management firms support advisors and grow their businesses. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

With this acquisition, Broadridge expands its wealth offerings to include advisor compensation and incentive management, advisor commission portal, account opening and client books and records solutions. These solutions offer an integrated approach to compensation across asset classes, including assets held-away, facilitating commission-based, asset-based and other innovative and compliant compensation approaches. M&O Systems' technology complements and extends Broadridge's suite of DOL Fiduciary Rule solutions, which support firms in making suitable investment recommendations, producing, distributing and disclosing documents, and monitoring compensation levels.

"The acquisition of M&O adds best-in-class, back-office agnostic compensation management solutions to Broadridge's market-leading product set," said Charlie Marchesani, President, Global Technology and Operations at Broadridge. "As a result, Broadridge can now offer broker-dealers and wealth management firms a more complete suite of front- and back-office solutions ranging from advisor marketing and practice management capabilities to mission-critical brokerage investment platforms."

"These capabilities complement Broadridge's overall DOL Fiduciary Rule strategy by allowing us to provide a timely solution to help facilitate clients' compliance with the Rule by calculating, monitoring, and reporting on compensation and tracking of Best Interest Contract Exceptions (BICE) and grandfathered accounts," Mr. Marchesani added.

"Broadridge's market-leading securities processing capabilities, operational expertise and commitment to serving its client base will enable us to bring greater value to our customers," said Sean Haggerty, Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer of M&O Systems, Inc. "I am excited about the opportunities this acquisition will bring for our team."

M&O Systems will be rebranded as Broadridge Advisor Compensation solutions.

Marlin & Associates acted as exclusive strategic and financial advisor to M&O Systems.
