Growth StrategyRather than marketing its services directly to consumers, SaveDaily looks to partner with financial services intermediaries that currently have both small and large customer bases with a propensity to invest, regardless of income level or experience. Through these relationships, the Company is creating an extended distribution channel for low cost mutual fund investing, fuelding investment account growth and reaching out to savers and investors through partners. Looking ahead, the Company’s goal is to capitalize on the following opportunities:
  • Large Market with Significant Opportunity. The market addressed by SaveDaily’s solution represents nearly $20.5 billion in revenue from account administration and servicing fees, in addition to advisory and distribution fees from assets under management.
  • Proprietary Technology Creates Additional Market Opportunities. SaveDaily designed its solution to profitably serve the small accounts in the mass markets and provide these investors with the ability to invest as little as $0.01 in the full breadth of mutual funds offered by the mutual fund industry. Due to the low cost structure of the platform, SaveDaily provides the only solution that enables partners to profitably service even the lowest income savers and investors with mutual fund investment opportunities, opening the door to entirely new markets.
  • Low Cost Leader in Account Processing. SaveDaily’s all-electronic, proprietary solution provides significant cost efficiencies by eliminating all printing and mailing costs associated with account opening, transaction confirmations, quarterly statements and account history. Additionally, SaveDaily’s straight through processing of mutual fund transactions drastically reduces costs associated with transaction execution to a point where, for the first time, an investor is not limited to the number of mutual funds within an account, while also allowing numerous transactions within those mutual funds, generally requiring no minimum transaction amounts, and without excessive trading penalties; allowing SaveDaily to offer this to any investor class for a low monthly fee.
  • Addresses Technology and Regulatory Requirements. SaveDaily delivers its technology to partners who have the necessary business agreements, regulatory filings, securities licenses, privacy practices and/or key relationships with financial institutions. The platform supports compliance functions, financial and tax reporting, and account processing responsibilities, including account opening, transaction processing and administration, statements and record keeping services.
ProductsThrough a unique blend of emerging technologies and innovative new models, SaveDaily enables both traditional and non-traditional financial firms to realize attractive profit margins on investment services, regardless of consumer income level or account size.

Utilizing proprietary sub-accounting technology, SaveDaily’s all-electronic model delivers the lowest cost mutual fund investing solution in the industry. Through a comprehensive set of investment and advisory services, SaveDaily provides a combination of education and sophisticated financial tools to enable consumers of all income levels to affordably save and invest toward core financial goals.

SaveDaily’s technology can be utilized to initiate brokerage services with consumer direct offerings, and to augment existing programs currently under the care of a financial advisor. The system can also be used for managed fund accounts, and for the portfolio management of trust funds, 401(k) Plans, 403(b) Plans, and Safe Harbor IRA Rollovers.

Through its full service record keeping facility, SaveDaily provides participants with daily valuations and full-featured web access, all while maintaining compliance with pre-determined mutual fund models or approved product lists. All tax reporting, performance reporting, confirmation and statement delivery is provided by SaveDaily directly to investors, or integrated into existing partner operations, for a seamless flow of regulated information to investors.

By providing its platform indirectly through various partners, SaveDaily has created an extended distribution channel for ultra-low cost mutual fund investing. SaveDaily also offers investments and record keeping services directly to clients.

The Company’s clients include: ACS/The hsa Solution, Patelco Credit Union, USBank, UMB, and BNY Mellon.

The Company’s services are offered through these sponsoring companies: Goodwill, Xerox, Black Wealth Network, Walmart and Culligan to name several.

  • Straight Through Processing. SaveDaily’s platform utilizes straight through processing of mutual fund transactions, connecting its partners’ investors directly to the investment product, reducing the number of steps and people involved in transaction processing.

  • Micro-Investing Capability Attracts New Investors. SaveDaily’s platform enables investors the ability to invest amounts as small as $0.01 into multiple nationally known mutual funds. This capability enables partners to serve mass market and mass affluent investors, addressing an estimated 51% of domestic households that have yet to purchase mutual funds.
  • Breadth of Expertise. In developing and delivering the platform, SaveDaily has acquired a cross-discipline combination of re-engineering processes, innovative technology, business agreements with fund providers and banking entities, financial licenses, and a carefully designed legal and regulatory structure.
  • Customizable Private-Label Solution is Built for Integration. SaveDaily has applied the knowledge gained in its years of experience running a direct-to-consumer website to optimize the platform specifically for partner integration. The Application Programming Interface (API) based model, open architecture, and adherence to data transfer standards allows for transparent integration in support of our partner’s branding efforts.
  • Addresses Large Marketplace. At the end of 2009, there were approximately 271 million mutual fund accounts in the US, representing 44% of US households, having an average account balance of $40,500. The market addressed by the Company’s products represented nearly $5.5 billion in revenue in 2009 from account administration and servicing fees, in addition to advisory and distribution fees from assets under management.
To summarize, SaveDaily’s technology platform allows clients to reduce costs of managing investment accounts to price points that are consumer friendly and profitable for the service provider.
