ACQUISITION, SUCCESSION & CONTINUITY PLANNING SUPPORT
Financial advisors are dedicated to helping clients plan their financial futures, but sometimes they need help putting plans in place to ensure their practice transitions smoothly when joining a new advisory and brokerage firm.

We also provide direct access to experts to help guide you.
ADVISORY & ASSET MANAGEMENT PROGRAMS
To grow a practice in today’s dynamic and evolving marketplace, you need to deliver outstanding advice and service while managing an efficient business. Powered by Envestnet®, Managed Opportunities simplifies and streamlines the wealth-management process to help you maintain this important balance. The platform’s innovative open-architecture provides easy access to money managers, programs, integrated applications like financial planning tools and custodians. It also offers the flexibility to integrate your choice of applications and capabilities from a wide range of solutions and services to fit your unique business needs.
Do Business Your Way, On One Convenient Platform
Managed Opportunities supports your preferred business model and will help you develop an efficient, scalable wealth-management process that frees up valuable time, eases your administrative burden and fits your clients’ long-term needs.
Combine the advantages of building scale and efficiency with the control of managing your own portfolios. With Managed Opportunities’ AMP program, you can build and manage your own model portfolios from the ground up, streamlining the maintenance of your models and easing administrative burden with comprehensive trading/rebalancing, reporting and billing.
With AMP, you have access to over 3,500 approved mutual funds and a large universe of ETFs, stocks and bonds as you create proprietary models to be used across your accounts.
AMP is offered through an unwrapped program, in which ticket charges are assessed to individual trades (unless the fund is NTF), and a wrapped program, in which an asset-based transaction fee applies and there are no individual ticket charges.
Selecting Managed Opportunities’ FSP options leverage the expertise of reputable fund and ETF strategists and professional money managers to help you serve clients more efficiently, effectively and profitably. Strategies span the various management styles — from a passive, more strategic approach to a more active, tactically managed approach.
Choosing Managed Opportunities’ SMA option grants access to a broad universe of institutional-quality managers focused on equity and fixed-income portfolios. The SMA program is an optimal choice for high-net-worth clients; clients who want specific exposure to certain asset classes; clients who want their own cost basis in individual securities; and clients who may need more flexible tax-management capabilities.
Managed Opportunities’ UMA option offers a diversified, multi-asset manager portfolio in a single account to meet your clients’ specific investment needs. The UMA option provides access to institutional-quality managers, including approximately 800 investment products, as well as a streamlined paperwork process and competitive cost structure. UMA also allows you to build customized model portfolios using the FSP or SMA portfolio options, in addition to incorporating your own AMP sleeves.
