Topeka, Kansas, July 5, 2016 — Advisors Excel, a national firm providing a wide spectrum of services and support to independent financial professionals, has formed a partnership with Orion Advisor Services, LLC (“Orion”), a premier portfolio accounting service provider for financial advisors, to help support Advisors Excel’s AE Wealth Management, an SEC registered investment adviser firm.

AE Wealth Management is an extension of the traditional AE service model. Focused on delivering a holistic and integrated platform where annuities, life insurance and securities are supported for the advisor on one comprehensive platform, AE Wealth Management will help Advisors Excel deliver an all-inclusive experience for clients.

Orion brings to the table a flexible back office solution for reporting, billing and client statements that seamlessly integrates wealth management, annuity and life insurance products in an easy-to-use client relationship management (CRM) platform.

“At Advisors Excel, we’re always asking ourselves how we can make the experience for both our advisors and, by extension, their clients more effective, efficient and streamlined,” said Advisors Excel Co-Founder Cody Foster. “We chose to partner with Orion because of their flexibility and ability to customize client dashboards that integrate reporting for virtually everything.  Their dashboards aggregate data, provide performance reporting, customized client statement and the fee billing structure. This allows our advisors to provide the best support to their clients as they  pursue their financial goals.”

“We’re excited to work with Advisors Excel as the portfolio accounting system of choice for their new wealth management division,” said Eric Clarke, CEO of Orion. “Advisors Excel cares about providing their advisors with the best-in-class technology tools they need to succeed, and the Orion platform will act as the foundation to support that mission.”
