Envestnet is partnering with financial services company FNZ to create a digital, integrated wealth management platform for the U.S. market, the companies said in a joint announcement Thursday.
The integration of Envestnet’s and FNZ’s platforms will enable real-time account opening and funding, as well as digitally automated servicing and maintenance capabilities for the full lifecycle of the client account, the firms said.
The partnership will also provide insights and experiences generated by Envestnet Data & Analytics’ Wealth Data Platform to be integrated as part of FNZ’s platform and distributed to FNZ’s global client base, they said.
Envestnet’s WDP will be integrated as part of FNZ’s global platform and distributed in international markets starting in the first quarter of 2023, the firms said. The end-to-end digital wealth-management solution will be available in the U.S. during the second half of 2023.
By “leveraging FNZ’s international scale and data sets, Envestnet’s WDP will help enterprises, advisors, and asset managers more effectively run their businesses with advanced predictive models,” the companies added.
FNZ administers over $1.5 trillion in client assets representing over 20 million investors globally, and it partners with more than 650 large financial institutions and 8,000 wealth management firms in 21 countries.
Over 105,000 advisors and more than 6,500 companies — including 16 of the 20 largest U.S. banks, 47 of the 50 largest wealth management and brokerage firms, over 500 of the largest RIAs, and hundreds of fintech firms — use Envestnet technology and services.
Orion Launches Redtail Campaigns
Orion Advisor Solutions on Tuesday announced the launch of Redtail Campaigns, calling it the industry’s “first CRM-centric advisor marketing suite.”
The offering is “powered by” Snappy Kraken and “builds upon Orion’s legacy Market*r tool, empowering advisors and firms to drive new business and deepen client relationships through hyper-personalized marketing campaigns launched right from their CRM dashboard,” Orion said.
The offering was made possible by Orion’s acquisition of Redtail in the second quarter of 2022, it noted.
“With Redtail Campaigns, we’re marrying marketing, CRM and financial planning technology to accelerate the ‘Prospect-to-Plan’ journey and modernize this important advisor workflow,” according to Brian McLaughlin, president of Orion Advisor Tech.
Redtail Campaigns and Snappy Kraken content are now available as a seamless integration to Redtail CRM, and is available to Orion and Redtail users and also as a standalone product.
Early-access pricing is available for a limited time at $200 a month per user for an annual subscription with no setup fee. Standard month-to-month pricing is $305 a month per user with a one-time setup fee of $500. Standard annual contract pricing is $255 a month per user and no setup fee.
Private Advisor Group Launches WealthSuite
Private Advisor Group introduced WealthSuite, a new investment management platform that it said Thursday is exclusive to its network of more than 750 advisors.
The firm’s goal is that the platform will “drive efficiency for advisors and [offer] an improved investor experience,” it said.
The multi-custodian platform is “competitively priced” and offers mutual fund, exchange-traded fund and blended mutual fund/ETF model portfolios, along with custom indexing and tax-optimized solutions delivered via a separately managed account structure.
The platform is being supported by BlackRock, Fidelity Institutional Wealth Adviser, Orion Advisor Solutions and WisdomTree, who were “selected after a rigorous due diligence process encompassing an evaluation of investment management capabilities, technology integration, and distribution support,” Private Advisor Group said.
Private Advisor Group teamed with Orion to deliver the technology to power the account opening, management and servicing of accounts on the WealthSuite platform.
Private Advisor Group had more than $29 billion in assets under management as of June 30, it said.
