NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Wolters Kluwer Compliance Solutions and Broadridge Financial Solutions, Inc. (NYSE: BR), a global fintech leader, have enhanced their longstanding relationship by entering into a strategic alliance to provide an industry-leading solution for cost basis and tax reporting processing needs.
The alliance provides the ability to seamlessly share necessary tax reporting data directly between Broadridge Brokerage Processing Services (BPS) clients and the GainsKeeper cost basis solution. This tighter integration will simplify the customer experience and provide the tools for tax-informed decision making. The collaboration also offers mutual customers an integrated, end-to-end solution for ongoing operations and year-end tax reporting.
“In today’s highly competitive and increasingly regulated financial services environment, the only constant is change, with no margin for cost basis calculation errors,” said Steve Meirink, Executive Vice President and General Manager for Wolters Kluwer Compliance Solutions. “Firms need a partner they can trust to help them meet both their regulatory and customer-driven requirements, while also providing them the flexible tools they need to constantly stay ahead of the curve. We are pleased to collaborate with a firm of Broadridge’s deep experience, expertise and integrity in the financial services arena to make GainsKeeper capabilities available to a broader market.”
“This offering helps clients better navigate the complex world of cost basis tracking, calculation and reporting in a manner that is seamless and transparent and further builds on our longstanding work with Wolters Kluwer,” said Mike Alexander, President of Wealth Management, Broadridge. “We are excited to better serve our clients and prospects and help them leverage the first-rate capabilities of GainsKeeper to help effectively run their business.”
GainsKeeper is a best-of-breed, automated tax processing solution that calculates, tracks, and reports cost basis, reflecting corporate actions, wash sales, and debt adjustments.
