According to Bristow, Broadridge’s open all-in-one platform raises advisor productivity, optimizes operational efficiency, and enhances the experience for investors.

“It will build on the core strengths of the solutions that both Broadridge and Equisoft offer today to thousands of individual advisors, broker/dealers, and fund companies,” she said.

“By combining our respective expertise, we now provide clients with a better overall user experience while driving bottom line cost efficiencies across the organization,” Stockley said.
