October 1, 2018

NEWPORT BEACH, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct 1, 2018--United Capital Financial Advisers LLC (“United Capital”), the country’s first and largest financial life management firm, and FinLife Partners, a division of United Capital, today announce a new integration with FinLife CX, the firm’s white-label wealth management platform, and Redtail Technology (“Redtail”), a leading provider of client relationship management (CRM) solutions for financial services firms, as well as celebrating $10.4 billion in assets under contract 1 from independent advisory firms now signed to use the FinLife platform.

This integration improves the versatility of FinLife CX, allowing Redtail users to rapidly onboard to the FinLife platform without having to train on an entirely new system. “The flexibility of FinLife CX means advisors can access United Capital’s outstanding, white-label financial life management tools within Redtail’s next-generation technology in a seamless interface that reduces redundant data entry,” said Redtail CEO Brian McLaughlin.

Partner firms can also choose to access the full power of the platform through FinLife CX+ Investment Management, with access to a wide breadth of experienced asset managers, where advisers can work with their clients to choose from several investment strategies to build a personalized portfolio, one that is tailored to each client’s priorities and can be adjusted throughout a person’s individuals lifetime as goals change.

The FinLife offering has evolved in tandem with its swift growth since its inception in mid-2016, signing 26 firms and seeing sustained interest from independent advisors nationwide. The value of United Capital’s financial life management tools and unparalleled client experience resonates with partner firms, who gain access to powerful tools like GuideCenter®, MoneyMind® and Honest Conversations® and resources to stay engaged and relevant with digital-savvy clients. In addition to vastly improved client satisfaction, FinLife platform users have reported an average of 25 percent growth in top line revenue. 2

The release of FinLife CX this year made the white-label offering even more potent, combining United Capital’s client engagement tools with a totally open architecture.

“FinLife CX takes advisors beyond one-and-done retirement plans and dry performance reports, unlocking the power to add real value to clients’ day-to-day needs,” said Mike Capelle, Chief Platform Officer of United Capital. “FinLife CX meets an incredible demand from partner firms to help households align their money with their priorities and grapple with the unique challenges in their financial lives.”
