Nitrogen Expands Trading Footprint by Extending Connected Trading to 25,000+ Additional Financial Professionals
New notable networks with access to Nitrogen’s enhanced trade delivery technology.
AUBURN, CALIFORNIA — September 7, 2021 — Nitrogen today announced the general availability of the Nitrogen Trading platform to every financial professional leveraging Interactive Brokers, Apex Fintech Solutions (“Apex”), and RBC Clearing & Custody. With Nitrogen’s innovative Connected Trading technology integrated into these platforms, more than 25,000 financial professionals with client accounts can now implement their portfolio decisions with just a click.
The deepening of the relationship between Nitrogen and enterprise firms around the country has been spurred on by the demand to provide a seamless trading experience for financial professionals with Nitrogen Trading, the end-to-end account monitoring and trading platform. Financial professionals leveraging Nitrogen Trading can focus their intellect and expertise on making great decisions, and advanced technology puts those decisions into place and helps keep accounts on track.
Connected Trading is Nitrogen Trading’s enhanced delivery solution that bypasses custodian trade files by routing trades electronically to the clearing platform and automating allocation of traded securities into client accounts. Connected Trading is now available with the Nitrogen Trading platform at RBC Clearing & Custody and Interactive Brokers.
“Nitrogen is the premier risk alignment platform and the new connected trading features make it even more powerful. As we think about the future of financial advice, we knew Nitrogen was a relationship we wanted for the long haul,” said Noel Stave, Chief Technology Officer, RBC Clearing & Custody. “Nitrogen was one of the founding partners for RBC BLACK, and we’re thrilled that our expanded relationship strengthens our technology toolset for the broker-dealers and RIA firms using the RBC Clearing & Custody platform. Nitrogen’s new trading functionality and automated trade delivery to RBC, made this the perfect time to make this great solution available to our firms.”
“Being able to benchmark, measure, document, and analyze risk is a key part of the puzzle for how today’s financial professionals show their value to investors, but advisors also want to make the implementation of their decisions easier and more effective,” said Aaron Klein, Chief Executive Officer at Nitrogen. “As we’ve worked with these institutions for many years, it was important to us that we were able to deepen our partnership by providing all of their financial professionals with best-in-class Connected Trading technology. Standardizing the risk analysis and trading tools for all financial professionals enables better advice and more trusting client relationships.”
The Apex workflow offers trade automation for advisors and eliminates the need for manual account allocations.
“We’re always looking for new ways to enhance our clients’ experience and this partnership does just that. With the wide range of tools available through our integration with Nitrogen, from risk scoring to portfolio management, our clients can now efficiently manage individual customer accounts in a one-stop-shop,” said Dustin Kirkland, Chief Product Officer, Apex Fintech Solutions. “We’re thrilled to partner with Nitrogen as we continue to strengthen our wealth management offering by creating opportunities for firms across the country to leverage and scale their businesses.”
