Fund Distribution

At the heart of any fund distribution system is a transfer agent. The role of the transfer agent is to record the owners of fund shares and to manage the subscription, redemption and transfer of those shares. SETL maintains this core ledger in its blockchain environment.

Platform for Investors

Surrounding this core is a range of functionality that facilitates a rich relationship between the investor, an advisor and the fund manager including client onboarding, KYC and investment reporting. SETL's fund distribution platform mutualises the mechanics of distribution whilst allowing fund managers to compete on product and performance.
