May 26, 2016

Orion Advisor Services, LLC (“Orion”), a premier portfolio accounting service provider for financial advisors, today announced its integration with CAIS, a leading financial product platform offering wealth managers access to a diversified menu of alternative funds and products.

Orion’s integration with CAIS offers advisors a streamlined account opening workflow combined with a data connection to provide fund activity into Orion’s performance reporting platform. Orion advisors now have the ability to directly sign up with CAIS and access CAIS’ suite of alternative financial products directly from Orion Connect.

“We are excited to add CAIS as an integration partner, giving our advisors the ability to easily access alternative investments and easily include them in client performance reports, client portals and mobile apps” said Eric Clarke, CEO of Orion. “As a notable leader in the alternative space, CAIS makes funds and products more accessible to advisors than ever before. We’re thrilled to launch this integration which will streamline advisor workflow, giving them back valuable time to spend helping clients and growing their businesses.”

Phase two of this integration, which will launch in the coming months, will offer a research workflow that enables advisors to obtain information for specific holdings directly within their household portfolio dashboard on Orion Connect.

“Orion’s tailored trade execution and reporting solution is a natural fit with the technology we’ve built at CAIS. Our goal has always been to provide independent wealth advisors with the tools and resources they need to be competitive and best service their clients,” said Tim Shannon, President of CAIS. “CAIS gives advisors access to a diversified menu of private funds and capital markets offerings coupled with independent due diligence, integrated custodial reporting and electronic subscription processing. Our integration with Orion empowers advisors to seamlessly allocate and monitor positions with even more ease.”

The integration is now available to Orion users. To learn more, you can register here for an informational webinar which will be held on Tuesday, June 7 at 2:30 p.m. CST.
