Montreal, August 30, 2022 – Equisoft, a leading global provider of digital business solutions to the financial industry, today announced that Portfolio Strategies Corporation (PSC), one of Canada’s largest independent Mutual Fund and Exempt Market Dealerships, subscribed to its Fund Compare module of Equisoft/analyze. The subscription will streamline the portfolio analysis process for PSC’s 300 financial advisors, and help the company fulfill the new Know-Your-Product regulatory requirements as mandated by the Canadian Securities Administrator (CSA).
“Fund Compare is an innovative online tool that enables our advisors to easily conduct due diligence and achieve compliance by automatically comparing investment fund key metrics, such as historical performance, volatility, product risk, fees, and asset allocation,” said Jason Bobee, Vice President of Business Development at Portfolio Strategies Corporation. “It’s great to have a tool that makes the process easier for our financial advisors.”
While the concept of an application that compares similar funds isn’t new, the automatic selection process enabled via the solution’s FundAdvantage feature differentiates it from other solutions. Unlike many other tools, it doesn’t require users to manually select all the products to compare. The new Equisoft/analyze functionality simplifies and automates the fund analysis process without compromising on the details needed to ensure compliance.
“With a crowded marketplace and constantly changing regulations, it can be expensive, confusing, and burdensome to keep up with the information required to provide informed advice to clients and determine the suitability of investment products,” said Robert Chaoui, Vice President of Account Management Canada at Equisoft. “The implementation was completed in a record time using the configuration capabilities of the new platform. We are pleased with how this turned out.”
