Thanks to a new partnership between RightCapital and Envestnet | Tamarac, financial advisors on RightCapital’s platform will be able to use Tamarac’s API to directly access account and holdings information from their clients, enabling real-time financial and tax planning advisory.
“We are very excited about our integration with Tamarac, an industry leading performance reporting and portfolio management system,” RightCapital CEO and co-founder Shuang Chen said. “We’re pleased that this integration will allow advisors to seamlessly connect our two platforms and get the most up-to-date information they need to create comprehensive financial plans for their clients.”
RightCapital’s technology leverages advanced Monte Carlo simulations to enable financial advisors to build personalized retirement plans, optimize Social Security, as well as manage tax liability, budgets, and debt retirement. The solution provides both cash flow and goal based planning, stress testing, and exploration of what-if financial events. RightCapital also helps advisors and clients manage their annuity products, and see how the value of these investments would be affected by changes in market volatility.

“Financial advisors have delivered holistic financial planning in the past, but mostly for their high net worth clients,” RightCapital CEO Shuang Chen explained from the Finovate stage last fall. “Not so much for the mass affluent client.” Chen cited complexity, cost, and the time-consuming nature of the financial planning process as the main challenges, and pointed to RightCapital’s approach of digitization and simplification as the solution.
“Our vision at RightCapital is to create a cutting-edge technology that digitizes and streamlines the financial planning process, making it easy for a financial advisors to create a financial plan and intuitive for a client to understand their plan,” he said. “This enables financial advisors to profitably and efficiently create financial plans and serve their mass affluent clients.”
