Mutual Fund Profile Service (MFPS II): Security Issue and Distribution Data Repositories

MFPS II, a multi-dimensional repository of two databases, automates and streamlines accurate and timely information on securities and distributions.

  • OVERVIEW

    The Security Issue Database, a central data source of comprehensive fund prospectus and operational rules, is a recognized industry standard for dynamic access to information critical to the management of mutual funds in the third-party market.

    The Distribution Database provides distribution data, such as record, reinvestment, and payable dates, for dividend, capital gains, and commission payments. Members are able to update their information in a format supported by MyDTCC Web Portal, allowing users direct access over the Internet to services provided by DTCC's subsidiaries. Profile is also accessible via mainframe through DTCC’s SMART connection.

  • SECURITY ISSUE DATABASE

    The Security Issue database disseminates a broad range of reference information about fund securities, increases transparency of information, and strengthens auditing and regulatory management to their distribution partners. This information includes, but is not limited to, investment objectives, fee schedules, contingent-deferred sales charges, commission data, breakpoint schedules and linkage rules, as well as information typically not disclosed in regulatory documents, such as blue sky and social code eligibility.

    The database’s Profile Security Data Comparison Tool, a web interface, receives data points associated with mutual funds from the SEC’s EDGAR system. The tool compares the mutual fund data points filed in the EDGAR system to existing Profile information and notifies asset managers through daily e-mail notifications of any differences, to help ensure accuracy.
