Accelerated growth to meet client demand remains a dominant theme in the New Year
WEST PALM BEACH, Fla., January 6, 2021 — SMArtX Advisory Solutions (“SMArtX”), a leading innovator in unified managed accounts (UMA) technology and architect of the SMArtX turnkey asset management platform (TAMP), is pleased to announce the expansion of its UMA Platform by adding five new firms and eight additional strategies this month. SMArtX intends to accelerate platform growth to meet client demand with the addition of Aristotle Atlantic Partners, Aristotle Capital Boston, Aristotle Capital Management, Cypress Capital, and Jensen Investment Management. They are joined by a new strategy from existing manager Alpha Vee.
Collectively, these firms add another eight strategies to the hundreds of traditional, alternative, and direct indexing investment strategies that currently exist on the SMArtX platform:
- Core Equity – Aristotle Atlantic Partners
- Small/Mid Cap Equity – Aristotle Capital Boston
- International Equity ADR – Aristotle Capital Management
- Select Dividend – Cypress Capital
- Global Allocation – Cypress Capital
- Quality Growth Strategy – Jensen Investment Management
- Quality Value Strategy – Jensen Investment Management
- Green Transportation Index – Alpha Vee Solutions
“We are pleased to welcome Aristotle Atlantic Partners, Aristotle Capital Boston, Aristotle Capital Management, Cypress Capital, and Jensen Investment Management to the SMArtX family,” said Evan Rapoport, CEO of SMArtX Advisory Solutions. “Fundamentally and structurally, SMArtX is rewriting the playbook for advisor success by providing a vast and ever-expanding diversified offering with managed accounts technology others can’t match. New firms joining the SMArtX platform recognize that and want to be part of our collective momentum.”
The addition of these five new firms continues where SMArtX left off in 2020 – with significant growth in assets under management representing a 5x AUM increase to over $10 billion at the close of the year.
SMArtX continues its rapid growth into 2021 amid the pandemic backdrop, as the economy and labor force works to recover from a challenging year. Fortunately, several strategies on the platform weathered the volatility, while others had their best year of investment performance on record as the markets came back strongly during the last three quarters of 2020. The SMArtX platform’s real-time performance reporting enabled superior information flow and the ability to act on the changing environment, including diversification into other asset classes like cryptocurrencies.
“Institutional demand for best-in-breed fintech solutions is catapulting SMArtX’s growth and penetration in the wealth advisory space,” said Jonathan Pincus, President and COO of SMArtX Advisory Solutions. “And as we enter this next phase of product development, our thesis remains the same—enterprises that navigate the uncertainty of financial markets with SMArtX’s core technology will reap disproportionate rewards.”
