NEW YORK, June 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- National Financial Partners Corp. (NYSE: NFP), a leading provider of benefits, insurance and wealth management services, today announced that NFP Executive Benefits launched an enhanced version of its Client Plan Administration Delivery System or "CPADS" system. CPADS provides bank owned life insurance (BOLI) administration to nearly 700 bank and financial institution clients.
Matt Andersen, head of NFP Executive Benefits, commented, "The commitment from NFP Executive Benefits to grow our client value proposition with technology remains a key strategy and a core competency of the organization.

NFP Executive Benefits employs the proprietary CPADS as a Web-based administration program for nonqualified plans and BOLI.

CPADS is a powerful service for clients that provides asset accounting, benefit liability accounting, concentration analysis, helps banks meet regulatory compliance requirements, as well as providing consolidated reports and other tax and accounting support. CPADS offers privacy and commitment to data protection for our clients by including an IT policy that adheres to ISO 27002 standards, being SSAE 16 (formally known as SAS 70 Type II) compliant, and having a multi-firewall strategy, virus protection, encryption of confidential data and strong login credentials.
With new features such as streamlined navigation, a personalized home page and dashboard, news and updates, this industry-leading system continues to deliver better service.
