Apex Clearing, an independent, full-service clearing firm, announced it has partnered with global FinTech firm InvestCloud on a new digital advice platform offering. The new, flexible platform will allow RIAs and wealth managers to grow their businesses with innovative, integrated digital advice solutions and premier custody services.
Apex and InvestCloud are creating this new platform to meet an underserved market need: businesses who want premier custody services as well as sustainably customizable technology. The platform will use a Digital App approach that scales with the complexities of Apexs client types, sizes and custom requirements. This combination of Apexs sophisticated, scalable API technology with InvestClouds wealth of intuitive apps and solutions will deliver even more ways for advisors to grow their business.
Bill Capuzzi, CEO of Apex, said: At Apex, we are committed to developing solutions that empower innovation and drive growth within our clients businesses. A big part of that is helping businesses distinguish themselves in the new era of digital investing – and not simply be seen as taking a me too approach.
