AUBURN, CALIFORNIA — February 28, 2023—Nitrogen, the industry-leading growth platform for wealth management firms, today announced a strategic partnership with technology-enabled private markets solution Opto Investments (“Opto”). This partnership will enable registered investment advisors (RIAs) using the Nitrogen growth platform to access exclusive private market investment opportunities, empowering them to achieve better outcomes for their high-net-worth (HNW) and ultra-high-net-worth (UHNW) clients.
Effective immediately, advisors utilizing Nitrogen’s growth platform can leverage Opto’s portfolio-building tools and expertise to build bespoke investment strategies.
