New Web Site Provides Perspective On Managed Accounts

CheckFree Investment Services of Jersey City has established a Web site dedicated to providing information and historical perspective on individually managed accounts.

Called the Kings of Wrap, at, the site offers news, research, commentaries, publications and association and conference listings, as well as other information pertinent to wrap technology and separately managed accounts.

The site is fundamentally about education and sharing best practices in relation to front-, middle- and back-office requirements in the wrap arena, CheckFree says.

The site, while hosted by CheckFree, provides unbiased information, reflecting a collaborative effort on the part of many industry participants.

One of CheckFree‚s products is its APL Wrap, which offers remote processing services to professional money managers and financial advisors for the automation of investment management, trading, portfolio performance and investor reporting.

The firm says 38 of the top 50 Wall Street firms and 36 of the top 40 managers connect with each other and operate their respective wrap programs on CheckFree APL WRAP.

CheckFree also owns M-Search, formerly Mobius, a leading database of investment-manager performance.
