Through Orion’s Insight dashboard, Orion users can now access FinMason’s institutional-grade investment analytics platform, FinRiver, to deliver dynamic financial plans quickly and at scale.
“The need in the wealth management community for financial planning tools that are simple to use, readily accessible, and seamlessly integrated has never been greater,” said Kendrick Wakeman, CEO of FinMason. “By embedding our financial planning analytics capabilities directly within Orion Insight, a platform so widely used and trusted, advisors can expand the scope of their planning efforts efficiently and easily.”
FinRiver allows advisors to deliver financial projections based on current saving and spending patterns, including the probability of achieving future goals, potential outcomes of different savings and spending rates, and the effects of special spending events, such as buying a house or paying for college.
Orion’s integration framework also enables data from FinMason’s platform to be accessed from within Orion’s advisor dashboard, Client Portal, and Salesforce and Redtail integrations. As a result, advisors can create comprehensive and compelling reports showing both the performance of investments and the progress toward a financial plan.
