ITG Launches Turnkey Research Payment Account Solution
The new ITG RPA solution offers a number of key features:
- Funding Flexibility and Security – The RPA can be funded with a research charge alongside the execution in a manner that can be operationally similar to a traditional Commission Sharing Agreement (CSA), but it can also be funded with a direct research charge to investors or from a firm’s own P&L. RPA accounts managed by ITG are held in an escrow account at a major global bank in
Europe, segregated from brokers’ funds and controlled by the asset manager. Streamlined Administration– The ITG RPA solution includes administrative tools that will enable asset managers to set research valuations, create and track budgets for their end clients, segregate RPA balances by portfolio, strategy, client, region or investment team, and track executions and research at the broker, portfolio, strategy, and trader level. These tools can save valuable time and resources.
- Expert Global Guidance – ITG has dedicated commission management, finance and operations support teams in
Europe, North Americaand the Asia Pacificregion staffed by veteran team members, many with decades of experience in trade reconciliation, vendor vetting and payment administration.
