The BISYS Group Inc. is giving more details about efforts by federal regulators to review its business operations.[@@]
BISYS, New York, is a company that sells support services to insurers, banks and mutual fund companies.
In the past, BISYS has reported that the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission has been looking into its mutual fund services business.
BISYS now says it “believes that the SEC’s investigation relates to the structure and accounting for certain arrangements pursuant to which the company agreed with the advisors of certain U.S. mutual funds to use a portion of the fees paid to the company by the mutual fund to pay for, among other things, expenses relating to the marketing and distribution of the fund shares, to make payments to certain advisors, and to pay for certain other expenses.”
