Why Portfolio+ investment management software?
Portfolio+ investment management software offers reliable connectivity to the FundSERV network for financial institutions, licensed distributors, dealers, agents, and brokers. Real-time access to the FundSERV network allows fund managers to create new mutual fund products, update security pricing, place trade orders, perform valuations, execute confirmations, reconcile statements, and process net settlement.
Our solution enables investment fund intermediaries to provide superior service with instant access to transaction history, settlement records, and pricing information. Our solution accesses data from the FundSERV Transaction Forwarding System (TFS) to generate daily uncommitted trade report(s) for review and settlement.
Our advanced reporting system improves asset management by generating diverse reports, including daily accrual rate, cash distribution settlement summary, income distribution, capital gain distribution, and service fee settlement summary.
Portfolio+ investment manager software simplifies administration of Registered Education Savings Plans (RESPs) and provides support for the Canadian Educational Savings Grant (CESG) and other provincial grants. Our investor-friendly tools create awareness about the benefits, eligibility criteria, and maximum permissible contribution for various RESPs.
Our solution automates compliance with specific rules of self-directed, family and single (individual) RESPs. It creates files for upload and submission, and downloads grants files. Notably, our solution allows accurate interpretation of error files received from Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC).
Portfolio+ software for investment management facilitates savings for differently abled persons through a Registered Disability Savings Plan (RDSP). Our solution offers a digital system for submission of application, approval, valuation, and reconciliation.

Our two-step submission process ensures RDSP applications are error-free. The preview feature for proposals helps users identify issues and rectify it prior to registration with ESDC. We use the Managed Secure File Transfer (MSFT) protocol for secure upload of submission files and download of status reports.
Portfolio+ investment management software maximizes investment in Life Income Fund (LIF) and Registered Retirement Income Fund (RRIF) accounts. Our solution allows scheduled and unscheduled payments. Further, RRIF cash accounts can be linked with term deposits for automated payment of interest and principal. It also provides RRIF and LIF account holders the flexibility to invest in traditional GICs, mortgages, cash, stocks, and bonds.
Our solution supports statutory requirements for qualified and non-qualified plans as well as RRIF systems of diverse carriers. Automated annual valuation and reconciliation ensure that minimum and maximum payments due in a given financial year, as well as the principal and interest amounts are adjusted for each pay period of a plan. Significantly, automation ensures that all transactions comply with statutory rules of each province.

Optimizing GICs for a Return to a Safer Return
Something unusual is happening. Amid rising interest rates, record high inflation, and ongoing market volatility in the early 2020s, Canadians poured an overwhelming amount of money into GICs and fixed-term deposits. In fact, within a period of just eight months in 2022 alone, Canadians pumped roughly $152 billion into these types of deposits. It’s an unusual spike in demand for an investment product that promises guaranteed returns that fail to match the rate of inflation. Optimizing GICs for a Return to a Safer Return explores the true value of GICs and their importance in a high inflationary, unpredictable environment, offering steps banks and financial institutions can take to better prepare, control, and optimize GIC sales for these kinds of unexpected spikes in demand.
