Fiserv, Inc. (NASDAQ: FISV), a leading global provider of financial services technology solutions, announced today that Capital Wealth Planning, LLC, a fee-only SEC registered investment advisor (RIA) based in Naples, Florida, has selected Fiserv to support its rapid growth. The firm needed a portfolio accounting and trading platform that could grow with them, and sought easy-to-use technology that would allow them to operate efficiently while serving clients effectively. The firm also wanted a technology partner that could help them stay connected to the wealth management industry and help develop capabilities that would allow the firm to interface to Unified Managed Account (UMA) model delivery platforms.

To meet these objectives, Capital Wealth Planning will utilize Unified Wealth Platform from Fiserv for its portfolio accounting and trading platform, and Wealth Management Network from Fiserv for broader and faster industry connectivity.

"We chose Fiserv to help us achieve greater productivity and efficiency in our investment management process," said Kevin G. Simpson, president and founder of Capital Wealth Planning, LLC. "The scalability, ease of use, and flexibility of the Fiserv platform will help us develop our technology, execute our investment strategies and better serve our clients. In choosing Fiserv, we are confident we made the right decision to grow our business."

The Unified Wealth Platform will allow Capital Wealth Planning to support every part of the investment process with more efficient trading and reconciliation, as well as tools for active portfolio management across multiple managed-account programs and security types, including equities, fixed income, exchange-traded funds and options.

Unified Wealth Platform from Fiserv provides technology automation across the entire wealth management process, including financial planning, retirement-income analysis, portfolio management, trading, accounting, portfolio performance and reporting.

Capital Wealth Planning will also benefit from broader industry connectivity with Wealth Management Network, the premier digital destination for the wealth management industry. Wealth Management Network facilitates real-time connectivity between all major market participants: asset managers, broker-dealers, banks, aggregators and market utilities, as well as advisors, investors and third-party partners, helping to create a digital wealth management ecosystem.

"An expanding firm like Capital Wealth Planning needs a technology platform that can grow as they grow, and that provides an excellent user experience for both advisors and investors," said Cheryl Nash, president, Investment Services, Fiserv. "By selecting technology that fits how people live and work today, and emphasizing digital connectivity, firms can stay ahead of changing investor expectations and industry demands."
