Thomson Reuters, the world's leading source of intelligent information for businesses and professionals, today announced an agreement with MyVest Corporation to enable Thomson Reuters Wealth Management customers to leverage MyVest's Strategic Portfolio SystemTM (SPS) to automate the end-to-end delivery of managed accounts.
MyVest's SPS is a cloud-based platform which allows the provision of holistic wealth management across an enterprise in a single, unified system. By integrating MyVest's SPS, Thomson Reuters BETA customers will be able to leverage SPS from within the application to automate and scale managed accounts operations for certain managed programs such as mutual fund advisory, ETF advisory and unified managed accounts.

"MyVest's Strategic Portfolio System is an ideal solution for any firm which wants to transform their technology and operational infrastructure to scale their mutual fund advisory, ETF advisory or unified managed account programs. With MyVest, they also offer the previously unattainable unified managed household program. We evaluated the firms in the marketplace and chose MyVest because they successfully combine managed accounts expertise, Silicon Valley innovation and an impressive management pedigree to deliver a leading product."
"Thomson Reuters is a proven leader in the wealth management service solutions space and MyVest is excited to become part of the BETA ecosystem," said Anton Honikman, chief executive officer of MyVest. "With SPS, wealth management firms can differentiate themselves by offering a greater level of sophistication in a fully integrated system. Our agreement with Thomson Reuters combines the power of SPS with BETA's robust and highly scalable transaction processing capabilities to create a comprehensive managed accounts solution that advisors can easily adopt from within Thomson ONE."
