Top Canadian Wealth Management Firm Investment Planning Counsel is First to Leverage Partnership
TORONTO and WINNIPEG, MB – April 14, 2021 – d1g1t, Inc., and Conquest Planning Inc., (Conquest) today announced the formation of a strategic partnership to provide a modern, seamless and top-flight technology solution to financial firms and advisors. Working together, the two companies will deliver an integrated solution, combining d1g1t’s industry-leading wealth management platform, which is powered by institutional-grade analytics and risk management tools, with Conquest’s state-of-the-art financial planning application.
Dr. Dan Rosen, co-founder and CEO of d1g1t, said, “We are thrilled to partner with the experienced Conquest team and I firmly believe that this collaboration will produce a unique end-to-end offering that will soon become the envy of the industry. Our partnership will provide financial advisors a fully integrated, easy-to-use wealth management solution that addresses all their needs in one place, allowing them to create relevant and meaningful engagements with clients.”
The first firm to benefit from this partnership is Investment Planning Counsel. The Ontario, Canada-based broker-dealer has already begun to implement d1g1t and Conquest’s integrated offering across its network of more than 700 financial advisors who, collectively, manage more than $28 billion.
Reggie Alvares, Executive Vice President at Investment Planning Counsel Inc. said, “I am excited to team with d1g1t and Conquest. These digital tools, backed by artificial intelligence, will let our advisors focus on what they do best – provide clients a best-in-class service experience and deliver financial advice, which today is more important than ever. I truly recognize the opportunities a partnership like this brings, and I am looking forward to bringing this integrated offering to our advisors.”
Both the d1g1t and Conquest leadership teams have extensive tech and entrepreneurial experience. d1g1t’s three co-founders – Dr. Rosen, Chief Product Officer Benoit Fleury and Chief Operating Officer Philippe Rouanet – have worked together for over 20 years, building and growing successful fintech businesses with strong financial engineering capabilities. Meanwhile, the Conquest application was built by the experts who originally founded Emerging Information Systems Inc. (EISI), a leading financial planning software firm.
Dr. Mark Evans, President & CEO, Conquest Planning, said, “Firms and advisors today are increasingly demanding all-inclusive technology tools and services that allow them to meet the needs of a growing number of investors who crave financial planning and advice-based solutions.
