Truelytics partners with BlackRock to provide advisors access to data, analytics, and insights to manage and grow their practices.
Financial Advisors need access to the most accurate, timely, and insightful tools for helping manage their practice and improve their valuation. To that end, Truelytics and BlackRock are partnering to provide a comprehensive business intelligence and analytics platform.
Truelytics was developed in response to the significant challenges financial advisors face when attempting to accurately measure their success, plan for succession, and improve their bottom line.
“Unfortunately, in our industry, many financial advisors don’t think of themselves as business owners and therefore don’t focus on growing their practice’s productivity, efficiency, or plan for increasing their valuation for a future merger, acquisition, or aggregation. “Today we remove all barriers to understanding the current value of their business and discovering opportunities to grow strategically” said Jeremi Karnell, CEO of Truelytics.
Advisors who use Truelytics identify, on average, $288,987.57 in Unrealized Value. Truelytics defines Unrealized Value as potential increases to an independent financial advisory firm’s Discounted Cash Flow (DCF) valuation as detailed in Truelytics Business, Client, and Revenue Scorecards that make up over 50 key performance indicators.
Two key apps that BlackRock plans to roll out via the Truelytics platform include:
Truelytics' growing database of 30,000+ independent financial advisory firm books of business (i.e., details around the firm’s ownership, staff, clients, processes, revenue, and expenses), generates over 50 KPIs related to a firm’s business, client, and revenue stability. Truelytics TruePerformance Indices and KPIs make up the industry’s first-ever business health record to be leveraged for practice management and during key transitional moments. Key features include:
TrueMatch supports advisors planning succession or growth through M&A to find potential opportunities. Key features include:
“BlackRock is continuously expanding our advisor practice management support tools to help advisors grow and succeed. By providing Truelytics to targeted RIAs and IARs on a complimentary basis, we’re able to actively help advisors better understand, measure, value, and grow their businesses.” Said Elizabeth Koehler, Managing Director, Head of BlackRock’s US Wealth Advisory Advisor Insights. “Our Market Leaders will be able to better help advisors identify the best practices that, if adopted, will contribute the most to each advisor’s long-term value. In addition, we can help advisors better manage the succession planning and M&A process.”
