Part of an RIA’s success is developing a solid working relationship with its clients. To do this, you need a place to keep track of your progress throughout your relationship.
Altruist makes it easy by offering a tech collection for advisors featuring Wealthbox. Why do we like Wealthbox? It was explicitly built for financial advisors and offers more upside than a standard CRM product like Salesforce.
Software for Document Retention / Archiving
Every RIA needs to be concerned with compliance and having all the correct documents in place is critical to managing your compliance program.
Your compliance consultant will often suggest an archiving service like Smarsh, Global Relay, or Box.
Financial Planning Software
Basic financial planning software is also required for any new RIA. Google sheets or Excel are good options if you are a proficient user. If you’re not comfortable using those tools, there are plenty of software vendors on the market.
