"Our vision with Managed360 has been to transform the way that advisors can deliver managed accounts to their clients, using the power of technology to eliminate redundancies, create efficiencies and save time," said Joel Hempel, chief operating officer at Lockwood, an affiliate of Pershing LLC. "As managed accounts continue to increase in popularity among the mass affluent, this solution provides advisors with an elegant, turnkey way to seize this new business opportunity."
With Managed360, advisors can perform core functions and access critical information seamlessly, without having to toggle between multiple technology platforms, resulting in greater productivity and operationally efficiency. The solution offers a number of advantages for advisors seeking to grow their managed accounts business, including:
A number of influential drivers – including technology-driven automation, the migration from brokerage relationships to long-term fiduciary and fee-only arrangements between advisors and clients, and the growth of the mutual fund wraps business – have led to increasing demand for managed account offerings.2
"Advisors who are well positioned for this next stage of evolution will have a real advantage over their competitors, and we are focused on making it easy for our clients to compete in this new environment," added John Brett, head of managed investments at Pershing and chairman of Lockwood. "At the same time, there is no 'one size fits all' solution when it comes to managed accounts, so we built our solution with a high degree of flexibility and choice of options."
