New Offering Automates Entire Experience for Advisors, Transfer Agents, Custodians, Asset Manager, and Wealth Managers
March 10, 2021
PHILADELPHIA (March 10, 2021) – Alternative Investment Exchange (AIX), the platform making it easy to buy, own, and sell alternative investments, has added new account maintenance functionality to its digital alternative investment platform. The new AIX account maintenance capability automates maintenance requests, mitigating tedious paperwork and manual processes.
“From day one, the sole purpose of AIX has been to make alternative investments easier to buy, own and sell,” said Joseph P. Ujobai, CEO of AIX. “With the launch of account maintenance functionality to our existing enterprise alts platform, we deliver on that promise by ensuring an efficient, point and click experience for advisors who want to make alternative investments a workable option for their clients’ portfolios.”
While subscribing to alternative investments funds is an arduous process, more effort and paperwork is required to support and maintain those investments over time. Being that owning alts is a long-term strategy, common changes, such as adding new banking information, adjustments to cost basis or distribution method, and basic updates to contact information, can occur dozens of times throughout the lifetime of a single account. Each of these transactions require more paperwork and greater time spent servicing these positions than any other type of asset class.
“By removing the friction associated with both buying and owning alternative investments, advisor exception handling and paperwork can be automated, leading to time savings and improved client experiences,” said Brad West, COO of AIX.
At this week’s Blue Vault Bowman Alts Week 2021, AIX is speaking on the importance of selecting a technology partner that understands the alts business, enables growth, and has the capability to solve for the entire alternative investment lifecycle.
Alternative Investment Exchange (AIX) is an end-to-end digital platform purpose-built to improve the processes related to buying, owning, and selling alternative investments. AIX’s technology reduces friction, mitigates risk, and creates value across all alternative investing stakeholder groups – wealth managers, asset managers, custodians, transfer agents, and fund administrators.

“Always, but especially in this day of lawsuits and ever increasing regulations, the responsibility for a financial advisor t do their own due diligence on products they sell falls squarely on themselves. No one is going to take greater interest in protecting their practice than they are. We use the Blue Vault Partners Nontraded REIT Review to keep us informed of the performance of every single nontraded REIT. Finally, complete transparency is available for advisors using nontraded REITs. Every advisor using REITs in their practice should make the small annual investment of subscribing to Blue Vault’s reporting services.”
