CHICAGO, June 6, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Envestnet's spring technology release included new platform technology integrations and improvements, marking another milestone in the company's journey toward developing a single, integrated platform that helps enterprises and advisors deliver comprehensive services that promote financial wellness to their clients.
Since Envestnet announced the last cycle of platform updates, the company has focused on key strategic platform priorities, including the Envestnet Insurance Exchange, Client Portal performance reporting and usability, and Single Portfolio Trading for PM Tools for Advisors. Its business model has also significantly evolved with new solution offerings, strategically formed partnerships, including one with BlackRock, advanced data aggregation/reporting capabilities and the recent addition of Envestnet | MoneyGuide.
"We're proud to have made significant progress with key strategic priorities, as well as improving all aspects of the Envestnet user experience," said Molly Weiss, Head of Product for Envestnet. "We are well-positioned to carry this momentum into upcoming development cycles as we integrate and build features to support and equip advisors and firms in promoting financial wellness."
