Integration Spotlight: Folio Institutional
4 December 2020

Nothing is more important than protecting your time.

According to some studies, most advisors don’t spend the majority of their time interacting with clients and prospects

Wouldn’t it be nice to improve that?

One way that we’re helping advisors reclaim their time is by integrating with the wealth management industry’s best companies, so you can least strike manual, back-office tasks like data entry off your to-do list.

In today’s blog, we’re covering how we integrate with Folio Institutional to improve your processes for running analysis on the accounts you custody there.

Who is Folio Institutional? 

Founded in 2000 by a former SEC commissioner, Folio Institutional provides comprehensive brokerage and custody services that include a model exchange, tax optimization tools, an advisor dashboard, and additional business management solutions.

How Folio and Kwanti Help Advisors Deliver Efficient Advice

Kwanti has integrations with all the leading custodians that wealth managers trust to custody client assets, including Folio Institutional. 

It’s essential that the analytics system you use integrates with your custodian so you can work with accurate portfolio information instead of spending your time uploading the latest positions. Instead, our integration lets you get right to analysis and making critical decisions without wasting time on data entry.

Here are three other benefits you’ll enjoy from connecting your Folio Institutional accounts to Kwanti.

Stay Current

When you set up a data sync between Kwanti and Folio, you get the confidence of knowing that your client data will always be current and that your decisions are based on accurate information.

Deliver Efficient Advice

Your clients want answers fast, and you can deliver them when your Folio data is automatically syncing to Kwanti. Use your time wisely by focusing on portfolio analysis, and then moving onto the next step, which is to deliver your recommendations back to your clients so they can take action and move closer to their goals.

Quantify Portfolio Decisions

Great analysis should be backed up by quantitative metrics and not just gut feel. When you use Kwanti to quantify your advice, you can show clients how each asset plays a unique role in supporting their financial goals and truly showcase the expertise and value you bring to the relationship.
