LAKE SUCCESS, N.Y., Jan 2, 2018 – Broadridge Financial Solutions, Inc. (NYSE:BR) has completed its acquisition of Morningstar, Inc.’s 15(c) board consulting services business. The acquisition strengthens Broadridge’s ability to offer the most complete source for independent, verifiable data that mutual fund boards of directors rely on to fulfill their governance responsibilities. Terms were not disclosed.
“This acquisition broadens the breadth and depth of the data-driven solutions Broadridge provides to the investment management industry and underscores our commitment to providing innovative services to help clients get ahead of today’s challenges and capitalize on tomorrow’s opportunities,” said Dan Cwenar, Broadridge’s head of buy-side data and analytics.
Broadridge has offered 15(c) compliance solutions since its 2015 acquisition of Thomson Reuters’ Fund Information Services business. Morningstar’s 15(c) data will be integrated into Broadridge’s board reporting system, providing clients the ability to benchmark funds using both Morningstar and Lipper classification systems within their reports and to leverage the expertise of the expanded Broadridge 15(c) team.
