Quovo and Vanare Partner to Help Financial Firms Provide a Better Client Experience

Financial advisors can now aggregate all of their clients’ financial data into a fully configurable online wealth management platform with advisor-built asset-class models, client risk assessments and investment portfolios.

NEW YORK [April 28, 2016] – Advisors striving to improve the client experience by providing offerings tailored to their entire financial picture, can now seamlessly aggregate their client’s data into a fully customized online wealth management platform. Two of the financial services industry’s leading technology firms, Vanare | NestEgg and Quovo, today announced their strategic partnership and solutions integration. The integration will go live this summer.

“Quovo’s clean and consistent data will enhance the value of Vanare’s platform,” said Vanare CEO Rich Cancro. “Our combined solution will help advisory firms by giving them deeper knowledge of how clients manage all of their finances—from checking account transactions, to loan and insurance payments, to assets in other savings and investment vehicles. Advisors who put our analytics to work for them can present more relevant risk analyses and relevant planning ideas to clients. They will also have more confidence in their ability to win new relationships and attract more assets under management, using the Vanare platform as part of their sales growth strategy,” Cancro said.

Advisors can put their client risk assessments, asset-class models and investment portfolios that they have built into Vanare’s online wealth management platform backed by Quovo’s aggregation technology.

Lowell Putnam, CEO and Co-Founder of Quovo, adds: "We're excited to partner with Vanare to bring best-in-class data to their award-winning wealth management platform. The team at Vanare is building one of the most ambitious platforms in the industry, which requires the highest quality data."

"This arrangement will bring advisors on the Vanare platform the intelligence and agility they increasingly need in our fast-changing industry," continued Putnam. "Quovo's normalization and reevaluation engine is able to translate data from thousands of sources into a single format that our partners can then leverage for their clients. We are pleased to partner with Vanare as they are dedicated to bringing dynamic, digital approaches to traditional advisor workflows. Their platform allows advisors to educate and serve individuals of any asset level, with holistic solutions available online, anytime, at the client's demand," Putnam said.
