RedBlack and Silver Announce Strategic Alliance
Relationship enables RIAs to improve workflows and enhance cash management capabilities.
NEW YORK, May 8, 2018 (Newswire.com) - Silver Management Group, Inc., a leading provider of business and technology solutions for the investment services industry, and RedBlack, the independent market leader in investment management solutions for rebalancing and trading, today announced that they have formed an alliance to improve client workflows and streamline complex fee and billing processes.
The partnership will enable RedBlack clients to use Silver's Fee Billing solution to generate fees using flexible fee methodologies, schedule assignments, exclusions and discounts. The solution automates manual billing processes, prevents intra-period fee leakage and provides detailed reports that explain revenue and investor demographics.
Silver clients will benefit from RedBlack's secure and scalable trading and rebalancing capabilities for householding, cash management and tax-harvesting, while minimizing risk and driving efficiencies in their investment strategies and portfolio objectives.
"Our alliance with Silver provides advisers with a synergistic and compelling offering," said RedBlack Chief Operating Officer John Grimaldi. "In combination, our vertically feature-rich platforms, with a planned seamless integration, will enable more streamlined and transparent operations around cash management related to fee billing processes, and robust analytics to reduce operational and investment risk."
"Technology and innovation are playing an increasingly significant role in financial advisers' relationships with their clients, and our alliance with RedBlack positions us to further influence that evolution," said Blake Henry, Silver's Managing Partner. "Through automation of complex portfolio management, our platforms offer firms the efficiencies and flexibility needed to succeed and grow."
RedBlack's clients will be able to take advantage of key features such as Silver's Fee Clarity, an innovative fee explainer. Fee Clarity effectively turns the Fee Billing system inside out by illustrating each component of the fee calculation in easy to understand views so advisers and support staff can quickly address investor questions and investors can grasp the details of their fee information.
As technology increases investor demand for transparency and accountability, advisers can gain operational efficiencies and enhance their client experiences through RedBlack's investment management lifecycle solutions that streamline pre-trade compliance, monitoring, rebalancing and trading, order management and post trade compliance.
