eConnectDirect Investment Tool
MACo Endorses Innovative Self-Directed Investment Tool
The Maryland Association of Counties (MACo) 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
- 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
- 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
