Investment technology provider qplum has unveiled the new Advisor Invest platform, designed to support small and medium-sized advisers aiming to implement elements of “robo-advice.”
According to qplum, financial professionals are facing pressures to “drastically reduce fees without compromising on the quality of their advice.” Like many other firms, qplum predicts market-driven fee pressures will continue the evolution towards a lower-cost, more transparent and highly automated advisory market—regardless of what occurs concerning the Department of Labor (DOL) fiduciary rule.
Against this backdrop, qplum says its platform provides digital on-boarding of accounts; real-time web monitoring and performance reporting solutions; fractional rebalancing and tax-loss harvesting for all clients; systematic risk management to handle potential market crashes without behavioral biases; and “artificial intelligence” driven investment strategies.
The service is built around a customized domain name that can be selected by the adviser, along with a “self-onboarding process that is as simple as opening an email account.”
“Many advisers feel left behind by the robo-adviser movement—but they don’t have to feel threatened or left out,” suggests qplum CEO Mansi Singhal.
