A Variety of Investment Offerings to Meet the Needs of Financial Institutions
SPF provides financial institutions with an array of investment product options to satisfy the product preferences and risk tolerances of all clients. Our comprehensive management platform, dataVISION®, provides the support you need to track clients’ portfolios and meet Compliance requirements.
The following is an overview of the SPF product offerings:
For customers that need or want the services of a professional advisor for financial planning and transaction-based brokerage services, SPF offers traditional brokerage products and services including stocks, bonds, options, unit investment trusts, mutual funds, brokered CD's, market linked CD's, and fixed and variable life and annuity products.
For those customers that want to do-it-themselves, with high touch functionality without the assistance of a professional advisor, SPF offers eVISION®. Through a website co-branded with the bank, customers are able to purchase and/or trade online individual securities on a discounted basis and buy or sell mutual funds from a pre-approved menu of more than 4,600 no-load mutual funds, many with no transaction fee.
SPF offers several options for providing financial planning and asset allocation services using an online fully integrated financial planning system that enables the advisors to pull data and save financial plans directly into dataVISION®. The SPF fee-based products include both profiling and asset allocation tools and models. Representatives that are licensed financial advisors are able to offer fee for planning as well as professional fee-based asset management.
SPF has developed a model for “Scalable Wealth Management” to address the variable needs of customers depending on the level and frequency of personalized service needed. The model addresses the need to efficiently utilize professional resources to their highest and best use by delivering the level of service appropriate to the customers' needs (based on asset size and complexity of management needed) and wants (based on the level of personalized service desired and required).
Fee-Based Advisory Services
SPF offers a competitive line-up of advisory and fee-based services in its suite of Asset Management products. If your financial institution has other fee-based platforms with which it is already working, we can be flexible in supporting them as well. Just discuss it with us.
The SPF Insurance Services group provides access to a wide range of life insurance, long term care, disability insurance and insurance for the business owner. The group is dedicated to supporting all advisors in their efforts to serve customers’ needs on a broader scale.
