ForwardLane Makes AI Wealthtech Accessible to RIAs and Broker-Dealers with Bridge Financial Technology Partnership

NEW YORK, Oct. 27, 2020 — ForwardLane, the award-winning wealthtech provider of personalized client insights for wealth and asset managers, has entered into a strategic partnership with Bridge Financial Technology to provide access to artificial intelligence for RIAs and broker-dealers. ForwardLane’s patented insights platform uses AI to automate client data analysis, identifies organic growth opportunities for advisors and enables them to provide superior personalized service to their clients.

ForwardLane’s powerful AI-based cloud technology for financial advisors helps them prioritize client engagements, prepare more efficiently for client interactions and deliver high-touch, hyper-personalized advice and insights for clients on a more proactive and frequent basis. As a result, users of ForwardLane’s technology can conduct data analysis 6.5 times faster than before, giving them up to 50% more time for business development activity and driving up their AUM growth by millions of dollars.

“Thanks to our partnership with Bridge, RIAs and broker-dealers that custody with top financial institutions and existing Bridge customers can utilize ForwardLane to personalize at scale, organically grow their business and provide a vastly superior client experience,” said Nathan Stevenson, CEO and founder of ForwardLane.

Bridge’s existing customers are invited to enjoy a free trial of ForwardLane, enabling them to activate both their customer relationship management (CRM) software data and their custody data. RIAs and broker-dealers that are not existing Bridge customers can also get the benefit of the data aggregation, integration and AI insights capabilities through the partnership.
