Loring Ward announced a major initiative to build the next generation of its advisor-facing web portal: The Advisor Center. Loring Ward will partner with technology leader Envestnet in this initiative to redesign and revamp the web portal.
According to Amjad Hannoneh, Loring Ward’s Vice President of Application Engineering, “We are committed to providing advisors with a superior technology solution aligned with our service model, which will ultimately help them be more efficient and effective in growing their practice with Loring Ward.”
To be built out in phases over the next two years, Loring Ward’s new Advisor Center will include advanced white labeling, advisor dashboards and metrics, a new proposal system, an alert center, enhanced reporting and analytics and a more intuitive user interface.
“The advisors who work with us have unique needs — we need to build a unique technology system that can support and serve what makes their practices distinctive,” says Alex Potts, CEO of Loring Ward. “This is a major commitment of time and resources for us, but we believe it will make a significant difference for advisors and their clients.”
