The advisors’ increased performance in assets and clients provides a competitive edge and enables the expansion of their practices. Subscribers grew their assets under management by 34.6% vs. 18.5% for non-subscribers, or almost twice the growth rate.

Investors’ held-away assets comprise up to 58% of their portfolios on average. Albridge Data Aggregation™ powered by CashEdge, delivers information on clients’ held-away assets to subscribers of the Albridge Wealth Reporting solution. The aggregation tool consolidates comprehensive financial data from over 9,000 sources.
