RIA in a Box Expands Partnership with Nitrogen to Launch Client Suitability Tool
BOSTON, MA — October 2, 2019 /PRNEWSWIRE/ —
RIA in a Box, a leading provider of compliance, cybersecurity, and registration software for the wealth management industry, announced today an expanded partnership with Nitrogen to launch the Client Suitability Tool as an expansion of its MyRIACompliance software platform. Augmenting recurring Compliance Calendar reminders to prompt assessment of client suitability and performance review, the new tool provides a more seamless experience for advisors and firms to conduct, track, and document the client suitability and portfolio review process enabled by the two platforms.
At a quick glance within the MyRIACompliance dashboard, individual advisors can easily identify if a client has been assigned a Risk Number® and if their portfolio is in alignment. Advisors are prompted when action is needed to either activate the Nitrogen integration, secure a client’s Risk Number or review a client portfolio to be in alignment with a client’s risk tolerance.
“Acting as a fiduciary and documenting those actions is a top priority for independent advisors, and at RIA in a Box we are focused on how we can further streamline those tasks,” said RIA in a Box Director of Product, Mike Lubansky. “We are excited to expand our partnership with Nitrogen to launch this first of its kind Client Suitability Tool to use technology to automate and document client suitability and portfolio reviews, easing the advisor’s workflow and giving them back time to focus on what they do best – serving their clients.”
“We are ecstatic to expand our integration with RIA in a Box which supports our mission to empower the world to invest fearlessly,” said Nitrogen CEO, Aaron Klein. “The Risk Number is the industry standard for ensuring clients are comfortably investing within their risk profile, and we feel that the independent advisors using the MyRIACompliance will see great value in this new automated tool.”
From the firm-level view on MyRIACompliance, Chief Compliance Officers (CCOs) and other designated supervisors overseeing compliance have access to a full summary of all clients. This allows them to identify if all advisors have activated the Nitrogen integration, secured Risk Numbers and that client portfolios are aligned to the Risk Number. Additionally, they have the ability to prompt advisors who need to take action on any of these items through the platform.
The Client Suitability Tool is now available to all mutual clients of Nitrogen and MyRIACompliance. For more information, please visit https://www.riainabox.com/.
