A newly announced strategic partnership between SigFig and Refinitiv will enable the company’s clearing and custody platform, Refinitiv BETA, to offer institutional clients an end-to-end robo advisory solution complete with account opening, automated investment management, money movement, and more.
Refinitiv Managing Director and global head of Wealth Management Joe Mrak highlighted the ability to offer investment management services and advice as a way for its clients to “differentiate themselves and add greater value for their customers.” The partnership with SigFig comes as the financial markets data specialist adds to its overall offerings in the wealthtech space, most recently its Market Psych Indices introduced in September. With SigFig’s technology, the company will be able to offer its wealth management clients an enterprise-grade digital advisory solution that Mrak said “will dramatically transform and improve their investing services and capabilities.”
Founded in 2007, SigFig made its Finovate debut in 2010 as Wikinvest. In the years since, the company has grown into a leading digital advisory technology firm that reaches more than 70 million consumers via partnerships with some of the largest financial institutions in the world. Earlier this year, the company introduced SigFig Atlas, an interactive, financial advice and software-guided sales platform for banks and customers.
“By partnering with Refinitiv, SigFig is able to continue to expand access to our industry-leading digital management advice solutions for both consumers and advisors,” SigFig CEO and co-founder Mike Shea said. “By bringing new levels of speed, scalability, and efficiency to Refinitiv’s wealth management business solution, we’re creating a fully integrated solution from front end client experience all the way to the back office.”
With more than $119 million in funding, SigFig includes General Atlantic, DCM Ventures, Bain Capital Ventures, and Union Square Ventures among its investors. The company is headquartered in San Francisco, California.
