London, February 18th 2016 – Equiniti Financial Services has signed an agreement with ITI Data Vision to license its etfHound digital investment solution for its Selftrade investment trading platform. ITI Data Vision is part of the ITI Group and a specialist in data visualisation tools which transform the investment process, and etfHound will enable Selftrade customers to switch from mutual fund investment into highly correlated Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs).
“The greater diversity, lower fees and lower cost of investing in ETFs will see them replace traditional funds as the asset class of choice for smart investors” said Richard Donegan, Equiniti Selftrade Managing Director, “but for this to happen investors need smart tools to help them pick the ETFs that best suit their portfolio. ITI Data Vision has the tools our Selftrade customers need“.
etfHound allows investors to quickly find ETFs that most closely mirror their current, usually higher cost, fund investments and calculates the cumulative savings, in management and investment platform fees, the investor can realise by switching to an ETF.
etfHound will be implemented by ITI Data Vision on a fully managed and hosted Software as a Service (SaaS) basis, and fully integrated into the Selftrade platform to further establish Selftrade as the platform of choice for ETF investors.
ITI Data Vision’s CEO Richard Hurford added “Minimising management and platform fees is probably the most important thing investors can do to improve their expected investment returns. Our data visualisation tools and etfHound solution demonstrate, in a highly intuitive and easy to understand way, just how much an investor can potentially save in fees by switching their fund investments to lower cost ETFs. We are delighted to be working with Equiniti Selftrade to give their customers the chance to maximise their investment returns through Exchange Traded Funds.”
