How Financial Advisors Can Meet Demands for Alternative Investments

By: Zak Boca

Succeeding as a financial advisor requires the ability to adapt to changing economic environments and ultimately, to the changing needs of your clients.

Clients are increasingly demanding access to more alternative investments. Being able to have a full understanding of your clients’ investments, whether it be real estate, cryptocurrencies, or private equity, is crucial. 

Challenges advisors are facing with alternative investments 

Back-office challenges: Advisors are experiencing trouble meeting capital calls, collecting important tax documents, and have limited performance knowledge of clients’ alts, to name a few.

Reporting challenges due to unstructured data: Private markets do not follow reporting standards, despite efforts by the Institutional Limited Partners Association (ILPA) and others. Lacking adequate tools, most data lives in PDF statements, with reporting requiring complex, manual data-entry.

Demand for an easy-to-use, tech-enabled experience: We live in a tech-enabled world. Only 37% of industries remaining have not been digitized.

Clients are demanding their advisors have a wealth management platform for alternative investments. But not just one with basic, out-of-date reporting, ultimately of little value add.

AdvisorVue: the alternative investment management platform for financial advisors

Understanding the difficulties investors and advisors are experiencing in the alternative investment space, we’ve created a solution of our own.

We’re proud to announce our upcoming release of AdvisorVue, the alternative investment management platform for financial advisors.

AdvisorVue is a first-of-its-kind alternative investment management platform made for financial advisors.
