DALLAS, Aug. 29, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- XYPN17 – XY Planning Network (XYPN), a turnkey financial planning platform for fee-only financial advisors that serve Gen X and Gen Y investors, today launched XY Investment Solutions (XYIS), a wholly-owned subsidiary of XYPN that will provide a turnkey asset management platform (TAMP) solution for XYPN's 425 members, created in collaboration with TD Ameritrade Institutional and built using RobustWealth, a leading digital wealth management platform for financial advisors.
Available to all XYPN advisors, XYIS was created to meet the specific needs of serving Gen X and Gen Y clientele, providing a digital-first experience for advisors and their clients, and investment management with no account minimums to support those just getting started with saving. Available models will include low-cost passive ETF portfolios, factor-based portfolios from Dimensional Fund Advisors, and a Socially Responsible Investing (SRI) offering for socially conscious young investors.
"The real value XYPN advisors bring to clients is their focus on financial planning, not investment management. The XYIS platform will let advisors focus on what they do best and outsource less critical functions such as account-opening, trading, and rebalancing," said Alan Moore, co-founder of XY Planning Network. "Both TD Ameritrade Institutional and RobustWealth have been incredible allies in developing XYIS, sharing our commitment to increasing accessibility for nextgen advisors through superior technology. We look forward to our continued relationship and fueling the program's growth."
XYIS' technology-forward user interface, which utilizes features developed by RobustWealth, allows advisors to streamline the client onboarding process; secure transactions on a client's behalf using electronic signatures; and store protected data all through a digital, compliant solution. Clients also have access to the platform and can review their information through a clean, easy-to-navigate client portal.
"The marketplace is changing and our industry needs to be thinking about new, sustainable business models that will appeal to different demographics," said Kate Healy, Managing Director, Generation Next, TD Ameritrade Institutional, a leading advocate for next generation advisors and women. "XY Planning Network's new investing platform is the kind of innovative thinking that can help independent RIAs be the choice of a new generation."
RobustWealth CEO, Rick Frisbie, said, "RobustWealth was designed for advisors who see the benefits of enhancing their practice through a comprehensive technology stack, an advantage that allows them to focus on what they do best: serving clients. We appreciate XYPN's confidence in our platform and are looking forward to delivering an incredible experience to their advisors."
