fund services fis awardI recently had the honor of representing UMB Fund Services (UMBFS) at the FIS Impact Awards program in Orlando, Florida, where we earned a fund services FIS award for using technology and services in innovative ways to better serve our customers and drive tangible business results.

As a leading administrator and transfer agent for closed-end products, we are continually evaluating ways to elevate our offerings and service. Automating processing transactions for alternative investments and using technology to serve the growing unlisted closed-end funds market is critical to both our business and clients’ success.

fund services fis awardWe are also excited for the opportunity to support two of our nonprofit partners with this honor. As recognition for winning, FIS will give a $10,000 donation to two charities of our choice ($5,000/each)—we have selected Junior Achievement and Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metro Milwaukee to receive those donations.

Junior Achievement (JA) is the world’s largest organization dedicated to inspiring and preparing young people to succeed in a global economy. Volunteers have the chance to work at in-school and after-school programs with students to focus on entrepreneurship, financial literacy and work readiness. Our company has a long history of supporting JA, and we are excited to use the Fund Services FIS award to honor the Wisconsin chapter with a donation of $5,000 from FIS.

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metro Milwaukee (BBBS)will also receive a $5,000 donation from the Fund Services FIS award. BBBS helps children realize their potential and build their futures through one-to-one mentoring relationships. They serve a crucial need in our community, and we are pleased to be able to support them in this way.
