The emergence of wealthtech-as-a-service is redefining the wealth management industry. Now, APIs are shaping the future of financial services by providing access to valuable data, enhancing integration and automation, enabling personalization, supporting scalability and reducing costs. With the increased availability of data, wealthtech firms can quickly develop new products and connect with different financial systems and tools to improve their products and client satisfaction.
