NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--March 25, 2004
Integrated Brokerage Platform and Tax Lot Accounting to Provide Brokerages with Superior Tools
SciVantage, Inc., a fast-growing provider of state-of-the-art technology and middleware solutions for retail and institutional broker/dealers, today announced an agreement to integrate its TradeVantage(TM) Pro and TradeVantage(TM) Investor platforms with GainsKeeper(R), the award-winning Internet-based, automated tax lot accounting tool.
The joint technology and marketing agreement--the first such formal partnership in the brokerage software industry--is particularly notable because it will make tax efficiency an integral part of the wealth-management process, and do so in an easily achievable manner for both professional and non-professional investors.
"We view this partnership as part of our long-term vision of continuously integrating the best-of-breed services for an advanced broker productivity tool," said Adnane Charchour, President and CEO of SciVantage. "GainsKeeper's software provides the best tax lot accounting engine in the market today. Its integration with our TradeVantage platform will provide our clients with an even more proactive and powerful platform."
SciVantage's TradeVantage Pro is the front-end platform designed for brokers, customer service representatives and brokerage operations personnel to access and manage customer accounts with unsurpassed flexibility, speed and convenience. TradeVantage Investor is the most advanced trading and investment platform available to the retail investor, enabling firms to present a world-class, fully customizable web presence at an affordable cost.
GainsKeeper, the leading provider of tax lot accounting services, includes accounting for wash sales, investment cost basis adjustments and capital gain/loss calculations for the Schedule D, corporate action cost adjustments, as well as tax-smart trade advice and asset allocation.
"No other single service offers investors the same level of seamless connectivity and integration between their trading accounts and tax-liability tracking services," said Darren Goldman, SciVantage's Director of Business Development. "GainsKeeper's continued dominance in tax lot accounting tools is huge draw. Built in access to GainsKeeper tools will enable all TradeVantage clients, including brokers, advisors and investors to play a more proactive and tax intelligent role in the overall wealth management of their assets."
Cameron Routh, Vice President of Business Development for GainsKeeper, a CCH IINCORPORATED business, said that the products offered by SciVantage dovetail perfectly with GainsKeeper. "Not only do the TradeVantage products present a clean and powerful user interface, they both incorporate Web Connect, the fastest and most efficient format for investors to download their transaction and account balance data directly from their financial institution's web site. That's a big plus for a brokerage looking to make their clients' lives easier."
