Mark Le Lievre, Co-founder and CEO of Vestrata, says: “We are entering an era where wealth managers will no longer be able to rely on market appreciation to drive revenue growth. We know from first-hand experience the significant and accelerating financial and regulatory challenges faced by the wealth management industry. Firms now need to focus not only on managing their cost base but growing their revenues via enhanced client engagement.

“We understand these challenges and have built a solution to address them. If firms are to engage with clients most effectively, they need to deliver differentiated investment solutions and use a sophisticated platform to enable advisors to engage their entire book of business. I am excited about the differentiated proposition we have built and the fundamental transformation that it will enable the wealth management industry to achieve in the years ahead.”

Lea Blinoff, Head of Solutions at Vestrata, says: “Our ambition is to fuse high-quality and differentiated investment solutions with advanced technology. Vestrata integrates a variety of investment solutions, products and asset classes with powerful portfolio analytics, reporting and a robust risk management framework to ensure advisors can deliver advice specifically tailored to their clients’ needs, in a scalable and compliant way. We enable the firms we work with to deliver more ideas to more clients, leading to revenue growth, improved control and enhanced client engagement.”
