API-DRIVEN PLATFORM IS QUANTUM LEAP
“As a trusted partner to advisors for the past 15 years, we have a number of mutual clients with Schwab, and moving to the OpenView Gateway secure API-driven platform represents a quantum leap forward for our relationship,” said Robert Miller, CEO of PCR. “The integration will allow us to share data and offer UHNW and family office clients as well as Schwab advisors, an efficiently managed total view of their investments, including automated alternative/illiquid and held-away assets. Schwab is the standard bearer for deep, real-time, secure API-driven integration.”
“PCR’s inclusion in the OpenView Gateway program is a natural step in the evolution of our longstanding relationship,” said John Connor, Vice President in Schwab’s Digital Advisor Solutions group. “We continually work to provide the most comprehensive platform possible to advisors and family office clients. Collaboration with industry leaders like PCR is critical to helping these advisors focus on building client relationships and scale their businesses.”
PCR joins Schwab OpenView Gateway as the only purpose-built data aggregator on the platform, connecting thousands of data sources. PCR clients and integration partners will be able to use the solution to securely connect data and metrics from PCR’s wealth aggregation platform to a multitude of other products and systems both inside and outside of Schwab’s eco-system. Existing integrations combine the best of Schwab and third-party capabilities and include many of the major technology tools that independent advisory firms depend on, such as CRM, portfolio management, financial planning, trading & rebalancing, and risk analysis.
