Fidelity® Forms Alliance With Archway Technology, Adding Sophisticated Portfolio Accounting Capabilities To Family Office Offering
BOSTON, MA. Fidelity Family Office Services (Fidelity), a leading provider of brokerage, custody and administrative services to more than 120 ultra-high-net-worth, single family offices, today announced that it has established an alliance with Archway Technology Partners, a global software company supporting the operations of private investment firms such as family offices and multi-family offices.
For executives responsible for managing the inherent complexities of a family office environment, the alliance Fidelity has established with Archway aims to deliver a comprehensive technology, service and operations solution designed to lower the total cost of running a family office.
As a part of the alliance, Fidelity and Archway have established a dedicated team of professionals from each company to help streamline the service and support experience for shared clients. In addition, family offices have access to Archway’s ATWeb, an enterprise financial management platform designed to enable complex family offices to efficiently manage their business through sophisticated capabilities such as multi-account aggregation and robust performance, net worth and exposure reporting.
“It is crucial that family offices have access to the reporting tools and information they need to increase efficiencies and further the families’ primary goals,” said Edward J. Orazem, president, Fidelity Family Office Services.
“Every family office is different, with varying levels of sophisticated reporting and investment needs,” continued Orazem. “As a result, we’re building an alliance program of leading service providers, such as Archway, with the goal of delivering a wide array of solutions for family offices.”
“Family office executives are often constrained in their ability to make the right choices and mitigate risk for the family due to the complexity and implementation cost of those decisions,” said Jason Brown, chief executive officer of Archway Technology Partners. “Whether the complexities arise from outdated infrastructure, support for new generations and tax efficiency, layers of ‘nested ownership,’ or complex investments, Fidelity and Archway can offer compelling solutions that minimize the ongoing burden at a lower cost and allow for the right decisions to be made.”
