Use PeerCompare to obtain an accurate picture of how your investment recommendation stacks up against its peers.
PeerCompare generates a product peer group based on similar products on your shelf – including Mutual Funds, Segregated Funds, ETFs, North American Equities, Fixed Incomes, Liquid Alternatives and Variable Annuities.
Compare a specific fund to other funds in the peer group, based on configurable criteria that includes Category, Risk and Time Horizon.

When making an investment recommendation, use PeerCompare to perform a best interest analysis and to disclose and/or record the transaction for supervision and audit functions.
Use PeerCompare with ComplianceExpress to digitally share investment recommendations with your clients and record all activity – including when disclosure was sent, received, and viewed.
Why technology is needed to make compliant recommendations
It is virtually impossible to meet the new best interest requirements without technology. Let’s look at a simple example:
In a typical day, a financial professional evaluates or makes five investment recommendations.
Her broker-dealer has an open product shelf of approximately 35,000 investment fund products. To meet Reg BI requirements, the advisor must consider a minimum of six data or suitability fields when considering reasonably available alternatives (RAA) including fees, risk, performance, time horizon, share class and fund series.
This will require processing over 1,000,000 data points – per day!
