Aviso Wealth understands that the wealth management industry is at an inflection point in terms of digital transformation. Enhancing the onboarding process is part of Aviso Wealth’s technology modernization roadmap, and key to ensuring ACP provides best-in-class experiences for its clients and their end-clients. “Until now, with existing technology solutions, it has been challenging to automate onboarding in a unified way from the firm to the custodian level,” says Kevin Vanderheyden, Senior Vice President, and Head Aviso Correspondent Partners. “With this partnership with Mako Fintech, we will further enable our clients to give Canadians leading-edge technology for building their wealth,” he says.

With the ongoing shift to a remote-first digital experience, wealth managers and brokerage firms are focused on providing the best possible experience to new and existing investors, while maintaining their unique processes and systems. The need for wealth technology solutions to automate and streamline the client lifecycle has driven the rapid adoption of flexible, low-code, cloud-based platforms like Mako Fintech.

Mako Fintech’s platform is able to automate and digitize all types of wealth management workflows and paperwork while maintaining regulatory compliance, even in a remote-first environment. “Mako Fintech integrates all of the required forms and unique processes into a single, unified experience from the investor, through the portfolio manager or introducing broker, all the way to the custodian,” says President and CEO Raphael Bouskila. “The flexibility of Mako’s platform enables partners to think beyond customer onboarding to what additional applications of our technology could be applied to automate and modernize advisor and investor experiences.”

The long-term goal of the partnership with Aviso Wealth is to create a modern advisory experience for all Canadian portfolio managers and investment dealers. Portfolio managers and advisors appreciate that Aviso Wealth is unifying its existing technology infrastructure, starting with a simplified, straight-through onboarding process. ACP clients can now spend less time on paperwork and back-office processes and more time on building meaningful relationships and growing their businesses. ACP has launched an initial group of clients on the new digital onboarding platform, and is preparing to expand availability to more partners beginning this fall.
