Our partnership with TPFG is another market proof point that not only demonstrates the value of our product, but points to a larger trend of financial firms seeking tools to help advisors thrive in a digital world.”

The first is the necessity for advisors to focus on engaging and presenting investment solutions to clients, in addition to financial planning. Advisors’ ability to efficiently and transparently communicate recommendations to clients has become increasingly critical to building trust. The second challenge is the often-tedious preparation of investment proposals.

CapIntel’s sales platform and proposals are designed to improve analysis and presentation for financial advisors and asset managers, as only the first step on their path …….
