Automated framework to support the fees management, billing and reconciliation operations in asset and wealth management
Today, transparency is high on the private client agenda and enshrined in the MiFID II regulations. A simple, transparent charging structure and a frank ongoing dialogue about what is being charged, when, how and why is not only required by the regulators, but it is also essential to maintaining client confidence.
Contemi Wealth Intelligence's fee processing module is a flexible and automated framework to support the calculation and charging of any fee type or structure. It provides wealth managers, stockbrokers, asset managers and intermediaries with a viable solution to easily manage the complex sharing of fees and reduce the level of manual processing.
The system is scalable and can easily support new business while simultaneously maintaining all existing and often complex arrangements with clients, advisors and other stakeholders. With the choice of a hosted or deployed setup, the system can be seamlessly integrated with any third party application.
