Wealth management is a curious term in that people will have a rough idea as to what you are talking about but not be sure exactly what it is you mean.
In the case of Marstone, the company’s platform allows a user to see their investments, move their cash from one place to another and see what their assets and liabilities are. It also analyses an investor’s answers to a series of questions, determining their risk appetite and then advises them on what to invest in.
That latter part is significant for any financial institution that wants to use the solution as it can allow them to encourage investment in their own models or specific exchange traded funds.
