Quovo Teams Up with Totum Wealth To Improve Client Account Aggregation for Wealth Managers

Quovo_homepage_June2016

Providing wealth managers with better access to and better aggregation of client accounts are the goals of the new partnership between client engagement and analytics company Totum Wealth and FinDEVr alum, Quovo.

“We pride ourselves in our work with innovative fintech companies,” Quovo CEO and co-founder Lowell Putnam said. “We are thrilled to reach even more advisors through our partnership with Totum as it’s clear that advisors using Totum see the same value we do in high quality data.”

Financial advisors and wealth managers on the Totum platform will now have access to “custodial feed data” from Quovo, and will be able to use that data to build personalized investment portfolios for their clients. Co-founder and CEO of Totum Wealth Min Zhang praised the cohesion of the Quovo platform, saying the partnership will enable financial advisors to “tailor comprehensive and responsible advice for their clients.” Zhang added, “We look forward to working with Quovo to redefine how wealth advice is delivered.”

Quovo has had a busy June. In addition to the partnership with Totum, Quovo announced earlier this month that SS&C would use its data aggregation for its Black Diamond Integration Network. Also in June, Riskalyze announced wider availability for its Quovo-powered Asset Sync solution.  Quovo earned a finalist spot in the Account Aggregation category of Wealth Management.com’s 2016 Industry Awards this month, as well as joining fellow FinDEVr alum Xignite in sponsoring Startupbootcamp’s first fintech hackathon in the U.S.

Founded in 2009 and headquartered in New York City, Quovo shared the FinDEVr stage with Finovate alum, Betterment, presenting “The Power of Aggregation Demonstrated by Quovo & Betterment” in New York this spring. Quovo has raised more than $5 million in funding – including a $3.8 million Series A in July 2015.
