Presentation

The Power of Aggregation Demonstrated by Quovo & Betterment

Quovo and Betterment believe a revolution is underway that will fundamentally change wealth management. Our CTOs will demonstrate how integrating Quovo’s account aggregation services into Betterment using a RESTful API helped build a streamlined user experience for clients. Account syncing workflows can be complex, especially when dealing with processes such as multi-factor authentication (“Text me a PIN to access my account” etc.), so the integration required deep collaboration. The result is one of the most successful aggregation features in the market today. It transforms the way people manage their money and plan for their futures.

What You’ll Learn

  • Today’s consumers expect their financial products to be personalized and relevant to their overall needs. Account aggregation deepens relationships with existing clients and draws new ones to FinTech.
  • All APIs are not created equal. API structure is critical for a successful implementation, especially when they involve two-way data, creating account connections as well as retrieving data.
  • Best practices for API integration requires deep collaboration. Communication at all levels of the organization (from CEO to CTOs to developers) aligns objectives and leads to successful end products.
