messageserv is a free, secure, easy-to use communication solution for the investment management industry.


Traditional communication methods like phone, fax and email do not meet the security and reliability requirements of the investment management industry; they are often time consuming, risky and error-prone. Common issues include:

  • Confidentiality and privacy of data
  • Email delivery errors
  • Inaccurate information
  • Guaranteed delivery and non-repudiation
  • Who said what and when?
  • Lost or illegible faxes

The Solution

messageserv was developed in association with the industry and is designed to reduce the amount of issues related to Not in Good Orders (NIGOs), letters of indemnity (LOIs), and other manual, paper-based communications. It connects manufacturers and distributors anywhere, on any device, through a secure, private network. Users across the industry can communicate freely, while ensuring sensitive client information is fully protected. Whether to investigate and resolve account-related issues or confirm investor trading instructions, messageserv users can save time and costs, increasing overall efficiency and investor confidence.
