CHICAGO, March 15, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Envestnet, Inc. (NYSE: ENV) received three 2017 Family Wealth Report Awards at an awards dinner held at the Mandarin Oriental in New York City on March 2, 2017. The firm won in the Portfolio Management, Compliance and Outsourcing/Business Process Outsourcing categories.
"Envestnet is dedicated to delivering wealth management technology tools that help financial advisors enhance their value proposition and expand client offerings," said Jud Bergman, Chairman and CEO of Envestnet. "Our commitment to ongoing innovation is truly a team effort, and we're proud to be recognized for improvements to our integrated platform across several important areas of focus that help advisors strengthen client relationships and increase productivity."
Envestnet won Family Wealth Report Awards in the following categories:
Portfolio Management. Envestnet | Tamarac was recognized for the Advisor View™ portfolio management and performance reporting application, which is part of the Advisor Xi® web-based platform for Registered Investment Advisors (RIAs). Advisor View offers RIAs portfolio analysis, personal dashboards, customizable PDF reports and powerful billing capabilities. The client portal engages investor clients with custom, dynamic reports, account aggregation, personal financial management tools and a secure platform for communication. The award reflects the many enhancements made to Advisor View in the past year, including an innovative feature that enables advisors to create new accounts that are populated with percentages of the assets in other accounts. "We are very pleased to be honored for our focus on outstanding portfolio management and the caliber of the Advisor View application," said Stuart DePina, President of Envestnet | Tamarac. "This award is a testament to our team's dedication to implementing feedback from the advisors we serve so we can continually enhance Advisor View's capabilities."
Compliance. Envestnet was recognized for integrating a solid compliance component into its robust turnkey platform. Prior to the announcement of the Department of Labor Fiduciary Rule, Envestnet began implementing initiatives to help advisors understand the implications and requirements of a fiduciary era. In 2016, Envestnet enhanced its wealth management platform to incorporate the requirements of the potential rule that will impact advisors in their client relationships, including the Best Interest Contract Exemption, disclosures and rationalization.
Outsourcing/Business Process Outsourcing. Envestnet's wealth management platform was recognized for its range of offerings and ability to cover a broad spectrum of client needs. Updates in 2016 included Open ENV, which unbundled Envestnet's wealth management platform, and an enhanced Advisor Suite, which offers better user navigation, goal-based planning and household performance reporting. Advisors can also leverage Yodlee's data aggregation capabilities to aggregate clients' personal finances and utilize a sophisticated reporting dashboard that helps them make decisions that strengthen client relationships and improve business performance.
Now in their fourth year, the Family Wealth Report Awards recognize companies, teams and individuals from the global private banking, wealth management and advisor communities that have demonstrated innovation and excellence during the previous calendar year. An expert panel of judges was drawn from both private banks and trusted advisors/consultants to the sector.
"The firms who triumphed in these awards are all worthy winners, and I would like to extend my heartiest congratulations. These awards were judged solely on the basis of entrants' submissions and their response to a number of specific questions, which had to be answered focusing on the client experience, not quantitative performance metrics," said Stephen Harris, CEO of ClearView Financial Media and Publisher of Family Wealth Report. "That is a unique, and I believe, compelling feature. These awards recognise the very best operators in the private client industry, with 'independence', 'integrity' and 'genuine insight' the watchwords of the judging process - such that the awards truly reflect excellence in wealth management."
