MACo Endorses eConnectDirect

An Essential Solution for Members to Manage Their Fixed-Income Investment Needs
John Coban, Senior Vice President, Multi-Bank Secrities, Inc.

The Montana Association of Counties in its continued partnership with the National Association of Counties and their Financial Services Corporation is pleased to endorse eConnectDirect® as an essential solution for members to manage their fixed-income investment needs. This proprietary tool, developed by Multi-Bank Securities, Inc. (MBS), gives county treasurers visibility to thousands of fixed-income offerings in a market with little transparency. It arms investors with the necessary tools and confidence to select and transact with the fixed-income marketplace.

While eConnectDirect® allows customers to be self-sufficient, the service also allows them to work with licensed MBS account executives in a dynamic way—working side-by-side with clients on fixed-income investment decisions they wish to make or to answer any questions clients have.

eConnectDirect® offers access the following investment products:

  • U.S. agencies
  • Treasuries
  • Certificates of Deposit
  • Municipal Bonds
  • Corporate Bonds
  • New Issue and Secondary Bonds

Additional features of the platform include:

  • Quick and easy search and filter tools to allow for effortless navigation across multiple fixed-income markets
  • One-step market view via maturity ladder
  • "Request a Quote" - allows for bid/offer requests for any fixed income product with a CUSIP
  • Maturity alerts along with other customizable notifications
  • Certificate of Deposit insurance scrub
  • Investment Policy customizable guidelines
  • Consolidated position management tools and reports
  • Third-Party Research
  • Access to historical financial data for banks and credit unions
  • Customer support by a licensed securities representative
  • Free safekeeping/custodial solution
  • Multi-Bank Securities Institute—free Public Funds Investor Guide
