Trust Company of America Announces Integration With Nitrogen, Offering More Efficient Risk Management Using the Industry’s Premier Risk Assessment Tool
DENVER, CO–(Marketwired – April 08, 2016) – Trust Company of America (TCA), the largest independent provider of integrated technology, custody and practice management support for Registered Investment Advisors (RIAs), today announced its integration with Nitrogen, a top provider of risk assessment technology and inventor of the Risk Number®.
The integration of Nitrogen with TCA’s powerful technology platform provides greater efficiencies for advisors including:
- More efficient risk analysis and management of client accounts. As advisors make adjustments or updates to client accounts on the TCA platform, these changes can be automatically fed into the advisor’s Nitrogen data, which processes the investments and allocations within seconds. And from the Nitrogen user interface, advisors can search for their TCA clients and seamlessly add their holdings to a Nitrogen client profile.
- More efficient risk analysis and management of investment models. Similarly, advisors’ investment models managed on the TCA platform can be automatically fed into the Nitrogen system, so they can quickly select the right models for clients according to each client’s unique risk levels. This integration saves advisors precious time by avoiding duplicate maintenance of models in the two systems.
“Our integration with Nitrogen enables advisors to be more efficient as they assess the risk levels of client portfolios, as well as their own investment models as they construct suitable investment strategies,” said Joshua Pace, President and CEO of Trust Company of America. “It also allows advisors to demonstrate to prospects how the right portfolio, quantified for the right amount of risk, can be effective in pursuing their long-term financial goals.”
Nitrogen enables advisors to demonstrate alignment between portfolio construction and the client’s comfort level with risk – confirming that the advisor is always acting in the client’s best interest. RIAs can also equip their representatives with this risk management tool to help them identify any mismatched risk alignment or high risk positions that should be addressed within client portfolios.
“We’re thrilled to be partnering with an innovative custodian like Trust Company of America that shares a deep commitment to equipping advisors with the best technology to drive their client service,” said Aaron Klein, CEO at Nitrogen. “The combination of TCA’s platform and Nitrogen’s risk alignment technology are a powerful combination to enhance scalability and reduce complexity in an advisor’s business.”
