55ip serves as a powerful, intelligent prospecting tool, enabling advisors to generate a prospect-level proposal in minutes illustrating the potential impact of lowering fees, risk of extreme losses and taxes – instantly putting the advisor and the client on the same side of the table. 55ip also enables advisors to play to their own strengths and investment management needs by allowing them to control or outsource part of the 5 key steps to investment management – fund selection, asset allocation, portfolio construction, tax management and trading – so they can focus on growing and scaling their practices. These capabilities are wrapped in a white labeled, easy-to-use digital experience and will be accessible directly from the CircleBlack Advisor hub.
