Providing a great solution, having an expert sales team, and creating valuable marketing content are not the only ways to grow a company. Mergers and acquisitions are another way to expand customer reach and increase market share. Large companies in the wealth management and fintech industry do something that makes perfect business sense for us when it comes to growing an advisor-focused offering business solution. And that is acquisitions.
Orion bought Redtail because Brian McLaughlin and his talented team are absolute rockstars in the wealth management industry and have a fantastic CRM solution that complements the Orion juggernaut.
FMG bought Vestory because AI is really a thing that can help to deliver a more tailored content experience for investors.
InvestCloud bought Advicent because they have 140,000 customers!
Docupace bought PreciseFP because filling out paper forms is a hassle.
Franklin Templeton bought Advisor Engine because they evolve their digital offering or risk becoming a dinosaur. Does anyone remember the last time E.F. Hutton called?
For AllBackoffice, another way to continue our momentum of growth is through this same strategy - acquisitions. By acquiring Aqumulate, an account aggregation company designed to support financial advisors and fintech companies, AllBackoffice can diversify while offering advisors and the financial service industry at a large greater value. We believe account aggregation can not only be better, but the support model and strength of institution connections can be more reliable. Our ability to offer proactive, one-on-one end-client support for troubleshooting aggregation connections that disconnect is unmatched. Our account aggregation API allows any service provider in the wealth management industry to integrate feeds from thousands of financial institutions in 4 weeks, not 6 months. All while receiving white-glove service and support from our team of tech and operations specialists.
