Pershing X, a technology provider and new business unit of BNY Mellon | Pershing, and Conquest Planning (Conquest), a financial planning technology start-up, have announced they will work together to integrate Conquest's financial planning application into the Pershing X platform. Advisors will benefit from a personalized experience, delivered through a combination of artificial intelligence (AI), powerful analytics, and real-time client collaboration.
BNY Mellon has made an equity investment in Conquest, reinforcing our commitment to client servicing and innovation. The Conquest solution will go live in the Pershing X platform in 2023. The integrated offerings will provide advisors a strategic approach to financial planning, combining both goals- and cash flow-based planning. The application can also help build a financial plan tailored to client profile, preferences and financial goals.
“Today’s advisors are data-driven yet time-starved,” said Ainslie Simmonds, President, Pershing X. “Our collaboration with Conquest will give advisors the most valuable asset of all – time - and the freedom to spend more of it with clients.”
"Everyone's investment path is unique, so the flexibility to embrace change is critical to achieve valuable financial outcomes," said Dr. Mark Evans, President and CEO of Conquest Planning. "Our collaboration with Pershing X demonstrates how the combined power of the human connection and technology can provide greater access to financial advice for all."
“Working with Conquest is a strategic milestone in our journey towards helping advisors improve their efficiency and effectiveness in financial planning. We are committed to our clients first, and this collaboration will help us commercialize the Pershing X platform to the broadest community of advisors,” said Jim Crowley, CEO, BNY Mellon | Pershing.
