EXTON, PA (February 5, 2019) – iPipeline® – a leading provider of cloud-based software solutions for the life insurance and financial services industry – today announced TD Ameritrade Institutional is collaborating with iPipeline to automate new-account opening for independent registered investment advisors. iPipeline’s Laser App Account Opening product allows advisors to execute account opening by simply choosing clients in a CRM and submitting in Good Order (iGO) information via Laser App® Anywhere mobile software to open an account with TD Ameritrade Institutional.
TD Ameritrade Institutional becomes the first custodian to integrate the Laser App Account Opening solution.
“On a daily basis, advisors process lots of forms that support all different business types. The time investment for opening new accounts is typically one hour, and this time could be better spent managing assets and meeting with clients—their real job,” said Tim Wallace, CEO, iPipeline. “Laser App Account Opening was developed to provide advisors with an automated and consistent experience. By seamlessly integrating our product with TD Ameritrade Institutional, any advisor doing business with them can open accounts more quickly and accurately. We’ve built our reputation on delivering speed and simplicity to the life insurance industry through innovation, and we are focused on doing the same for advisors in the financial services industry. iPipeline is pleased to be collaborating with TD Ameritrade Institutional on this advancement.”
“Opening accounts takes time, and every minute we shave off that process for the advisor adds up,” said Bob Mahoney, Director, Technology Solutions, TD Ameritrade Institutional. “iPipeline has provided us with an automated solution that helps to reduce errors by taking the data from an advisor’s CRM to open new accounts. By substantially reducing Not in Good Order (NiGO) submissions and speeding up the process, advisors can focus more on clients and less on administrative tasks. We expect registered investment advisors will benefit from greater efficiency and accuracy.”
