Quovo cofounder and CEO Lowell Putnam said: "We’re excited that Advicent shares our vision about the future of wealth management and financial planning being built on a foundation of rich data.
"By offering our aggregation to the broad client base Advicent has, even more advisors will be able to service clients with holistic advice. Additionally, the larger enterprise clients of Advicent will be positioned to capitalize on the business intelligence opportunities that our platform will be providing."
Advicent Solutions added that it will leverage the accord to introduce a new, collaborative client experience that combines PFM and financial planning in coming months.
