InnoTrust is a state-of-the-art offering that enables independent trust companies, trust and custody departments of banks, wealth management firms, third-party retirement plan administrators and others to manage their financial and accounting information, both in breadth and depth, with greater processing efficiency and speed as well as lower costs. Offered as an Application Service Provider (ASP), InnoTrust provides robust functionality without the attendant installation and operational costs of on-site legacy platforms. The InnoTrust platform is customizable and scalable, and has the flexibility to adapt quickly to changing client and market needs.
According to Cathy Clauson, vice president of product marketing for Schwab Institutional, âAs more investors age and become interested in trusts, advisors are recognizing that trusts are the gateway to managing the total wealth of their high-net-worth clients. InnoTrust will enable us to offer valued trust accounting services that will help advisors compete more effectively. Weâre looking forward to working with Innovest to serve the growing trust needs of advisors and help them further evolve their businesses.â
Said William Thomas, CEO of Innovest, âWe are committed to providing financial firms, both large and small, a state-of-the-art yet cost-effective way of providing trust accounting and wealth management services to their clientele. Innovestâs technology, combined with our dedication to client service, distinguishes us in a market too long captive to legacy approaches. We look forward to working with Schwab to address the important opportunity it faces in delivering leading technology and unsurpassed service to the advisor community. Innovest is well poised to make a significant contribution to Schwabâs efforts.â
Schwab Institutional expects to make trust accounting services available to advisors by the third quarter of 2007.
