Ekon Benefits is one of the few independent third parties that trade using the National Securities Clearing Corporation (NSCC)'s Fund/SERV service. The NSCC, a wholly owned subsidiary of The Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation (DTCC), is a central counterparty that provides centralized clearance, settlement and information services for virtually all broker-to-broker equity, corporate bond and municipal bond, exchange-traded funds and unit investment trust (UIT) trades in the U.S.
NSCC is also the main provider of centralized information services and money settlement for mutual funds and insurance and annuity transactions, linking funds and insurance carriers with their broker/dealer, bank and financial planner distribution channels.
NSCC, today the world's leading provider of centralized clearance, settlement and information services to the financial services industry, was established in 1976 to take over the highly paper-intensive clearance and settlement for the major stock exchanges and the over-the-counter market.
Fund/SERV is the industry standard for processing and settling of investment funds, including both 1940 Act and other pooled investment products for investment companies, money managers and financial intermediaries. The service provides standardized formats and centralized processing of purchase, redemption, and exchange orders, account registrations, and provides participants with a single daily net settlement.
