Under a multi-year agreement, RBC Wealth Management – U.S. (RBCWM) will adopt the Broadridge Wealth Management Platform, which promises to create a better client experience, improve advisor productivity, and digitize back-office functions. RBCWM will also be migrating to Broadridge’s Asset Servicing platform.

“We’ve been on a multi-year journey to digitize our business and drive value not only for our clients, but for our nearly 2,100 advisors,” said Michael Armstrong, CEO of RBC Wealth Management-U.S.

Prior to this latest partnership with Broadridge, RBCWM has also invested in other state-of-the-art third-party Fintech tools and services, including integrations with Salesforce and Addepar to give advisors better client insights, performance reporting, and portfolio management tools.

“Leveraging the Broadridge Wealth Management Platform … will enable us to increase advisor productivity, enhance our client experience, and grow our business in the U.S. with a scalable, cost-efficient service model,” Armstrong said.

An open architecture solution, the Broadridge Wealth Management Platform uses state-of-the-art APIs and micro-services that allow seamless connectivity to clients’ applications. With a modernized advisor desktop and customizable tool set, the platform supports various advisory functions and features including performance reporting, managed accounts support, multi-market order management, and more.
