AssetCo and Westwood Partner with InvestCloud on Innovative Asset Management Distribution Solution
InvestCloud, the global leader in digital transformation for the financial industry with over $6 trillion in assets, today announced partnerships with leading asset managers, AssetCo and Westwood Group to innovate the digital distribution of financial products and strategies. Launching in the US initially, the partnership lays the foundation for both AssetCo and Westwood to tap into new markets through the InvestCloud platform’s global reach.
The partnership will see the investment strategies and financial products of AssetCo and Westwood distributed digitally via the InvestCloud Financial Supermarket (FSM)™ to financial advisors throughout the United States, starting this year. This includes the subsidiaries and associates of AssetCo—namely, River and Mercantile, SVM, Saracen, and Rize ETF.
Campbell Fleming, CEO of AssetCo, said: ”This is a time of dynamic change for AssetCo. Our partnership with InvestCloud plays a pivotal role in our transformational strategy in the US as we engage in a digital partnership to align ourselves with investors preferences of the future. We chose to partner with InvestCloud because of the quality of their digital capabilities and their global distribution. InvestCloud’s Financial Supermarket™ is a hugely innovative approach and very attractive for AssetCo and our operating companies as we support our growth strategy. InvestCloud’s digital approach to distribution will provide us with a highly efficient way for our products to reach a global audience. Through InvestCloud’s brilliant approach to data and their Digital Warehouse™, AssetCo will also attain key data insights on our strategies and our distribution across our markets, which will provide tremendous insights to serve our clients better.”
Brian Casey, CEO of Westwood Holdings Group, said: “Partnering with InvestCloud will transform the way we distribute financial products, opening up new channels and markets to reach more customers. This will help propel our growth, and in turn enable clients and advisors to more easily discover the products which best match their investment needs. We’re excited to be part of this digital revolution for financial products and portfolio construction.”
InvestCloud’s Financial Supermarket (FSM)™ will enable advisors to search for and select the best products for their clients, using industry-leading digital search capabilities and access to a multitude of virtual products, all in one digital location. The technology will also provide both AssetCo and Westwood with pace-setting data analytic capabilities to understand which products and content are resonating with specific segments.
AssetCo acquired River and Mercantile in June 2022. The partnership offers AssetCo an opportunity to quickly scale this business into the US marketplace.
Alex Hoctor-Duncan, CEO of River and Mercantile, said: “We are well aware of the potential opportunities in the US and believe our tailored strategies will be very successful through our partnership with InvestCloud. It’s an exciting new initiative, reinforcing our belief that as a dynamic boutique we can move with the times and change as the investment landscape changes. InvestCloud offers best-in-class digital distribution, with particularly powerful reach in the US, and we look forward to a very successful partnership.”
John Wise, CEO of InvestCloud, said: “We are excited to be partnering with two industry pioneers in Martin Gilbert and Brian Casey and their teams to transform the way financial products are distributed. InvestCloud has built the industry’s leading digital transformation platform with over $6 trillion in assets, and we continue to invest in innovation of the financial sector with our development of the Financial Supermarket™. These partnerships will offer tremendous distribution opportunities, with the potential to leverage over 400 wealth management firms with over 20 million investor accounts currently on InvestCloud’s global platform. We are confident that following our success together in the US, we will continue to drive growth by partnering with AssetCo in other key global markets.”
