Powered by sophisticated rebalancing technology from MyVest®

JERSEY CITY, N.J., November 15, 2010Scivantage, a leading provider of Web-based, front- and middle-office technology solutions to the financial services industry, announced today the availability of its new Portfolio Rebalancing module that allows financial advisors to streamline the process of rebalancing and trading their clients’ accounts.

Developed using proven rebalancing technology from MyVest®, a comprehensive wealth management technology provider, Scivantage’s Portfolio Rebalancing module is an enterprise solution that automates the rebalancing and trading of client accounts, while providing the necessary capabilities to ensure compliance with firm-level policies. Built on the Scivantage Investment Platform™, and available as a premium application of Scivantage Professional™, Portfolio Rebalancing simplifies the labor-intensive, complex process of monitoring an advisor’s client base for portfolio drift and ensures client accounts are automatically aligned with its firm and/or advisor-defined model and asset allocation target.

Leveraging Scivantage Professional’s integration with a firm’s back-office clearing and custody systems, Portfolio Rebalancing offers real-time access to each account’s holdings and provides straight-through processing of all transactions. Scivantage’s rebalancing solution uniquely delivers sophisticated portfolio management coupled with real-time order execution to deliver an immediate competitive advantage for financial advisors. From the initial creation of target portfolios, through maintaining adherence to the investment model within the designated drift tolerance, advisors are now able to manage increasing numbers of client portfolios, without the burden of inconsistent data, disparate systems and cumbersome processes.

“Portfolio rebalancing is an important and necessary service that financial advisors provide to their clients,” said Joe Stensland, senior vice president marketing and products, Scivantage. “Traditionally, advisors have had to rely on overly complex data collection and manual, time-consuming tools or spreadsheets to monitor and rebalance client portfolios. Working with MyVest, we were able to develop an enterprise-level portfolio rebalancing solution that automates the rebalancing process and enables financial advisors to deliver best practice portfolio management to all of their clients in a disciplined and consistent fashion, in a fraction of the time previously required for rebalancing.”

Scivantage’s Portfolio Rebalancing is the latest application offered by Scivantage that is designed to automate key revenue-generating processes within the wealth management workflow. This powerful new application automates time-consuming, manual rebalancing tasks and ensures client accounts are routinely aligned with pre-defined investment strategies, thereby increasing both client value-added and advisor productivity, while streamlining back-office processes. Key features include:

  • Ability to rebalance a single account or multiple accounts, plus set drift tolerances for each portfolio
  • Monitoring of all portfolios for drift beyond pre-defined tolerances
  • Advisors create and maintain portfolio models consisting of mutual funds, stocks and exchange-traded funds (ETFs)
  • The firm’s investment group can create and manage asset allocation models for use by advisors firm-wide
  • Define %-weighted or share-weighted models, plus models of models, with multiple tiers
