Envestnet introduced the Envestnet Credit Exchange, a program that integrates lending solutions into the wealth management process on the Envestnet platform. Envestnet has partnered with Advisor Credit Exchange (ACE), creators of an advice-driven program that supports advisors in facilitating loans to clients. This partnership will enable Envestnet enterprises and their advisors to offer pre-qualified loan offers for their clients over a range of loan types.
“We are excited to partner with ACE. Our partnership allows us to serve advisors and their clients an even broader suite of financial wellness solutions,” said Bill Crager, Chief Executive, Envestnet Wealth Solutions, and Co-Founder of Envestnet. “We believe advisors who offer integrated advice to their clients can help them achieve better outcomes. Building a lending solution into the platform is crucial for Envestnet to continue to bring advisors the tools they need to maintain an advantage over competitors, and provide the most comprehensive financial wellness services to their clients.”
The Envestnet Credit Exchange will seamlessly connect select lenders with Envestnet enterprise clients, allowing advisors to deliver holistic advice by incorporating lending solutions into the wealth management process. Advisors will have access to a streamlined screening process that generates real-time, immediately-available loan offers for their clients with direct referrals to lenders. The feature is expected to be available through single sign-on access via the Envestnet platform later this year.
“We understand the importance of lending services to overall financial wellness and look forward to working with Envestnet to provide these capabilities to financial advisors, firms and their clients,” said Peter Stanton, Founder of ACE. “The ability to provide advisors with multiple loan options for their clients in a real-time, pre-qualified manner is noteworthy. It significantly enhances the advisor’s capacity to provide a fully integrated wealth management solution that is comparable to that of any wealth management firm or banking/lending institution in the market.”
Credit options considered for launch include consumer loans such as securities-based, residential real estate, unsecured personal loans, fine art and other luxury asset backed loans, and additional options. The offering will also include commercial and business loans, which will be introduced at a later time. These loan options fit advisors’ need to support a variety of client financial goals, including cash flow, education, home purchase/refinance, business investment, tax obligations and other large-ticket needs.
Attendees at the 2019 Envestnet Advisor Summit® will be the first to see an in-person demonstration of the platform in anticipation of the formal rollout of the tool. The Envestnet Advisor Summit will be held in Austin, Texas, from May 1-3, 2019.
