MIMICS Certificate of Deposit Custody System manages your customers' custodial CD holdings from the point when the order is posted on the website. Both Interest Bearing and Discount CDs are handled through our system. The system tracks multiple levels of status of the CDs, from Pending to Approved, based on different compliance issues needed to complete the transaction.
The system projects the interest to be received by you from the Institutions and projects the interest to be paid by you to your Customers. It also calculates the spread in rates, and determines the portion of interest that you take, and the portion to amortize the broker commission.
In addition, the system facilitates payment processing by check, by ACH to your customers' DDA account, or by wire. Checks can be printed on blank check stock or pre-printed check stock based upon your specifications. Credit advices and reports can be printed from the system.

Verification by bank employee is simple because all trades entered by the brokers passes by a bank employee for verification before final posting. Custody receipts can then be produced.
