(Income Lab), the leading provider of retirement income management software, has selected BridgeFT’s WealthTech API to aggregate multi-custodial data to power and enhance Income Lab’s cutting-edge software for ongoing retirement income management and client engagement.
Income Lab makes accessible impactful retirement tools for advisory firms of all sizes–large and small. Access to multi-custodial data has helped Income Lab acquire new advisors and successfully onboard them to their platform. This data was also essential for powering their planning tools with on-time, accurate client investment account information.
“BridgeFT’s on-time multi-custodial data, combined with the robust features of Income Lab, helps advisors answer questions around retirement like, ‘How much can I spend?’ or ‘Will I be okay if things change?'” said Justin Fitzpatrick, Chief Innovation Officer of Income Lab. “BridgeFT allows us to have a single access point to important data, removing the need to go directly to each custodian, which dramatically shortened the timeline to make our solutions available to advisors.”

The company’s WealthTech API is the industry’s first WealthTech-as-a-Service platform, offering a single, open API to trade-ready, multi-custodial data, advanced analytics, and application services.
