Newbridge Selects Altigo for Enterprise Alts Solution
December 7, 2022 | Altigo
Newbridge Securities Corporation (“Newbridge”), a full-service brokerage and investment banking firm based in Boca Raton, Fla., has selected Altigo as its one-stop technology solution that all its affiliated registered representatives and advisors will use when allocating to alternatives (“Alts“). In choosing Altigo’s straight-through processing technology to power its Alts program, Newbridge joins a growing community of 300+ sponsors, broker-dealers, and RIAs that benefit from the platform’s smart workflow, speedy and accurate transaction processing, and paperless efficiencies.
The partnership ties in with Newbridge’s larger strategy of adopting digital solutions that streamline wealth management services, while enabling affiliated registered representatives and advisors to deliver a constellation of investment solutions that align with their clients’ needs and goals.
“We look forward to Altigo setting a new standard of service for our affiliated registered representatives and advisors as well as for their supervision,” said Newbridge CTO Kurosh Golchubian. “The home office is prioritizing automation of our core capabilities to up our service game and to stay in sync with rising demand for digital-first solutions. Straight-through processing provides reduced regulatory risk and the satisfaction of knowing that submissions will be in good order the first time—giving our supervisors more time to supervise rather than micromanage paperwork.”
Altigo integrates all aspects of alternative investment subscription and compliance, while significantly reducing not-in-good-order (NIGO) errors and other administrative headaches. Newbridge will manage Alts paperwork and enforce suitability and best interest requirements using the platform’s Supervision Assistant functionality rather than with traditional methods such as checklists and spreadsheets. Newbridge will also benefit from having access to all firm-approved alternative investment offerings in a single white-labeled portal. The platform’s ability to integrate with popular CRM and compliance and risk management tools will advance Newbridge’s desire to build a tech stack that will attract new affiliated registered representatives and advisors and clients well into the future.
Altigo and WealthForge CEO Bill Robbins said, “We’re excited to know that Altigo’s transformative technology will provide an enterprise solution for Newbridge’s home office in addition to being a time-saving tool for their affiliated registered representatives and advisors. Placing the firm’s Alts program under one roof while still routing transactions through the same supervision systems Newbridge normally uses will simplify, centralize, and de-risk suitability review and other key compliance requirements.”
