“We believe that the professionally managed segment of the market is about to experience a growth acceleration; Financial Simplicity’s technology is best of breed in supporting organisations to provide their clients with superior portfolio servicing to meet the increasing demands and expectations from both clients and regulators.”
Financial Simplicity’s portfolio management technologies have been tightly integrated with Pershing’s execution, asset servicing and custody solutions.
“Financial Simplicity’s offering helps us provide our clients with an integrated solution with portfolio management and compliance capabilities that many have only dreamed of,” says Bayliss.
“The overall solution really addresses the needs of our clients to simultaneously improve their client proposition, address regulatory concerns and improve business efficiency.”
Stuart Holdsworth, CEO of Financial Simplicity, says the company is pleased to be working with one of the UK’s most significant financial securities organisations to provide solutions that address the needs of non-conflicted remuneration structures imposed by the UK Retail Distribution Review (RDR).
“The team at Pershing Adviser Solutions has developed some of the industry’s best thinking in relation to solutions for the UK market, and we are proud that both Financial Simplicity’s approach and technology closely aligns with this vision,” states Holdsworth.
