NEW YORK, October 25, 2016 –
Vanare, the wealth management technology platform with a highly customizable white-labeled Roboadvisor, and FinMason, the financial education firm focused on investment risk, have partnered to help advisors educate investors about the importance of risk while demonstrating the merits of a professionally managed portfolio. The integration gives advisors rigorous institutional capabilities to easily analyze risk across a multitude of investment types, delivered in a modern, web experience by advisors to clients.
Vanare will be at the Schwab IMPACT conference in San Diego this week booth #605 in the Sponsor & Exhibitor Resource Center (#SchwabIMPACT). Vanare CEO Rich Cancro will be available to discuss the Vanare / FinMason integration, either at the Schwab IMPACT conference or via telephone. Telephone or Skype interviews with FinMason CEO Kendrick Wakeman can also be arranged.
ACCESS TO BETTER, EASIER, REAL-TIME METRICS
"Vanare has selected FinMason as a key partner for quantitative risk analysis within our platform and roboadvisor experience. They have an incredibly intelligent risk engine," said Vanare CEO, Rich Cancro. "On a daily basis, their system regresses thousands of variables against virtually every public security in the market, isolates relevant factors, and provides derived analytics in real time via APIs. Combined with Vanare's industry-leading client experience, FinMason's high quality data can help advisors explain the value of advisory services to clients intuitively and simply, while remaining robust and meaningful."
"Platforms with such high-level analytical data have typically been reserved exclusively for institutional investors, are often prohibitively expensive and are rarely accessible to Advisors and their clients. Our partnership with Vanare changes that fundamentally," said Mark Hollingsworth, FinMason's Head of Advisor Solutions. "From the other side, recent mobile apps and user-friendly websites allow individual users to access a variety of financial assets, but they fail to provide meaningful analytical measures of investments with our level of rigor."
"Advisors tell us how important it is for them to quickly communicate their value proposition to all types of investors," said Cancro. "Together with FinMason, we are offering the tools needed to demonstrate complex portfolio analytics at any level of sophistication in real-time. From an operations and compliance point of view, we also help firms incorporate ongoing risk assessment across an entire business to ensure proper portfolio alignment for each client; which is essential as the new Department of Labor fiduciary rule is implemented in 2017."
"Regardless of how experienced and skilled an advisor is, the ability to show value to the client is essential," said FinMason CEO Kendrick Wakeman. "When utilizing our system within Vanare's offering to better explain the risks and rewards of financial investment opportunities, advisors stand to gain by strengthening their relationships with existing clients and by receiving referrals from satisfied investors."
The integration will further enhance the data aggregation offering Vanare recently launched with advisors, which allows clients to see the value of all their assets and liabilities within a roboadvisor or client portal offering.
