CINCINNATI, OH – October 28, 2015 – Success continues for FTJ FundChoice as the Firm today announced that it now invests over $5 billion on behalf of its financial advisor clients. FTJ FundChoice, a national turnkey asset management program (TAMP) headquartered in Cincinnati, OH, credits its record growth to an enhanced customer service model, the launch of its investment management and reporting technology platform MMS™, and the success of its Three Mandate Investment Process.

“We are proud to say that more advisors join our platform daily, and once they join, they stay,” said Dean Cook, President of FTJ FundChoice. “We’ve worked tirelessly to hone in on the needs of today’s financial advisor and fine tune our advisor experience. We enhanced our technology offering to help our advisors compete in a changing marketplace, and reworked our customer service model to where each FTJ FundChoice client has a consistent and dedicated support team. We are thrilled to announce this record growth as it is not only a testament to the hard work of our FTJ FundChoice team but also the direct result of our clients’ success.”
