Brinker Capital said last week that it has inked a five-year deal with Checkfree Investment Services that ensures that Brinker will run its separately managed accounts business on Checkfree's existing APL program as well as transition to its new Enhanced Portfolio Lifecycle (EPL) through 2010.

EPL, Checkfree's new Web-based SMA technology, was built using the Microsoft.net operating system and user interface, into which financial service firms are increasingly networking. Atlanta-based Brinker said that most of its 95 investment managers and broker/dealer partners are turning to Microsoft.net to improve operational and cost efficiencies.
