London, November 30th 2015 – ITI Data Vision, part of the ITI Group and a specialist in data visualisation tools which transform the investment process, and Equiniti Selftrade, the leading investment trading platform, have signed Heads of Terms whereby Selftrade clients will be able to use ITI Data Vision’s etfHound platform to switch between mutual funds and highly correlated Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs).
Selftrade customers will be able to use etfHound to quickly find the ETFs that most closely mirror their current, usually higher cost, mutual fund investments. etfHound will then calculate the cumulative savings, in management and investment platform fees, the investor can realise by switching to an ETF on the Selftrade platform.
“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 clients need“.
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 platform demonstrate in a highly intuitive and easy to understand form just how much an investor can potentially save in fees by switching their mutual fund investments to a lower cost ETF. We are delighted to be working with Equiniti Selftrade to give their clients the chance to maximise their investment returns through Exchange Traded Funds.”
