Boston, August 4, 2020 – The landscape of RIA technology has become increasingly crowded, but the recent shock of the COVID-19 pandemic has catapulted advisors into a new understanding of the importance of efficient technology and digital client engagement. The technology is now evolving to address market dynamics, new challenges, and the needs of advisors’ end clients. Vendor platforms have a primary focus on portfolio management and reporting, but data consolidation, business intelligence, and new RIA service models have also emerged as keys to an evolving value proposition.
