Innovation for Managing Retail Assets
Driven by regulatory change and client demand, retail investable assets are migrating at an accelerating pace toward fee-based investment advisors, robo-advisors and self-directed investment platforms where many investment products are currently unavailable or under-represented for cost and ease of access reasons.
We’ve listened to the needs of both investors and advisors, and led a FinTech revolution of our own. With the launch of NEO Connect, we are the first distribution platform that allows investment products not listed on an exchange to be purchased and redeemed as simply and efficiently as it is to trade ETFs.
NEO Connect provides efficiencies for investment product manufacturers, advisors and investors, and is free for dealers.
It streamlines the purchase and redemption process, and makes it easier and more cost-effective for investors and advisors to use investment products that were previously out of their reach.
Investment Products Now Available via NEO Connect:
NI 81-102 Prospectus Mutual Funds
The costs, complexities and inefficiencies of purchasing and redeeming, and an overall negative perception about traditional prospectus mutual funds compared to ETFs, have led to their limited take-up in fee-based investment accounts.
At NEO, we believe that both traditional prospectus mutual funds and ETFs are important components in every investment portfolio and have listened to the industry’s demand for an innovative solution.
Offering Memorandum (OM) Funds
OM funds provide eligible investors and advisors with the ability to diversify their investment portfolio into alternative assets through “private investments”. The distribution, access to and management of OM funds is complex and costly, preventing access to many investors and limiting the ability of OM fund managers to raise capital.
At NEO, we believe the OM funds market is set to experience substantial growth provided the experience of manufacturing them and investing into them is streamlined and efficient.
By bringing OM funds online with NEO Connect, advisors and eligible investors now have efficient and lower cost access to these unique investment products, while OM fund manufacturers can now raise capital from a broader range of investors in a more cost-efficient manner.
