Likewise, commissions and other charges have a significant impact on returns, and correctly calculated breakpoints are one way to minimize those costs.
Major examination findings include: * Nearly one in three transactions that appeared eligible for a breakpoint discount or sales charge waiver did not receive one.
This was prompted by the report in 2003 of the Joint NASD/Industry Task Force on Breakpoints which singled out Profile and some of our other core Mutual Fund Services for their ability to help meet the challenge of delivering breakpoint discounts," said Bergin.
In addition, NASD, the NYSE and the SEC will examine firms to ensure that they are meeting their responsibility to deliver breakpoint discounts.
Breakpoint discounts are volume discounts applied to the front-end load charged to investors who purchase Class A mutual fund shares.
We estimate that for 2001 and 2002 alone, $86 million is owed to investors from the failure to award breakpoint discounts, demonstrating just how critical it is that firms identify, remediate and take steps to prevent problems in this critical segment of the markets," said Mary Schapiro, NASD Vice Chairman and President of Regulatory Policy and Oversight.
Fund/SERV, recognized as the de facto industry standard for processing fund transactions by fund companies and third-party distributors, will be enhanced to enable fund companies to transmit and receive information necessary to identify and apply proper breakpoints on investor trades.
24 /PRNewswire/ -- Morningstar today announced the launch of a new set of Web-based tools that will help brokerage firms and their advisors comply with federal regulations around mutual fund breakpoints, and will help ensure that investors understand and receive mutual fund breakpoint discounts for which they qualify.
The database will include information about a fund's investment objectives; minimum and maximum investment requirements; fee schedules; breakpoint schedules and linkage rules; and other fund rules.
