IA-2554 26-Sep-2006 Administrative Proceeding
Order Instituting Administrative and Cease-and-Desist Proceedings Making Findings, and Imposing Remedial Sanctions and a Cease-and-Desist Order Pursuant to Section 203(k) of the Investment Advisers Act of 1940, and Sections 9(b) and 9(f) of the Investment Company Act of 1940 as to BISYS Fund Services, Inc.
On September 26, 2006, the SEC instituted settled administrative and cease-and-desist proceedings against BISYS Fund Services Inc. According to the SEC: "These proceedings arise out of improper arrangements between BISYS Fund Services, Inc. ('BISYS' or 'Respondent'), a mutual fund administrator, and 27 mutual fund advisers in which BISYS aided and abetted the advisers' improper use of fund assets for marketing and other expenses incurred by the advisers. BISYS entered into side agreements obligating BISYS to rebate a portion of its administration fee to the funds' advisers so that the fund advisers would continue to recommend BISYS as an administrator to the fund board of trustees. Through these side agreements, fund advisers used fund assets to pay for marketing expenses incurred by the advisers to promote the funds. Occasionally, fund advisers also used the money dedicated by BISYS pursuant to these arrangements to pay expenses entirely unrelated to marketing, including check fraud losses, seed capital for new mutual funds, and settlement of disputes with third parties."
