Mutual Fund Settlement Administration
A series of findings against many mutual fund companies beginning in 2003 resulted in the discovery of illegal trading practices. In response, Colbent developed its Fair Fund Settlement Administration System (SAS). In concert with the Plan Administrator, SAS provides a complete business solution for companies that have been mandated to make restitution payments to shareholders. Colbent performs raw data conversions, manages broker outreach programs, applies calculation methodologies and creates payments to shareholders. Other mailings, requests for information, tax certifications or collecting optional payment instructions are all part of Colbent's integrated delivery system.
