“SMArtX is excited to add Ativo Capital Management and Dearborn Partners to our UMA platform,” said Evan Rapoport, Founder and CEO of SMArtX Advisory Solutions. “In addition to the expansion of the model marketplace, SMArtX is continuing to see high demand for our billing application, which is providing new levels of flexibility and control while helping firms find lost revenue from inaccurately billed accounts.”

SMArtX’s continued growth is driven by two main applications of its technology: the off-the-shelf TAMP offering, which is built using SMArtX Advisory Solutions’ proprietary UMA technology, and the ability to further deploy that tailored UMA technology through APIs to meet the mandates of large enterprises, RIA platforms, and hybrid broker-dealers. 

“The SMArtX billing application is setting a new precedent in functionality that is helping firms to manage their billing cycle more efficiently and accurately,” said Jonathan Pincus, President and COO of SMArtX. “The ability to automate and control the process from the firm level down to the individual sleeve is not only helping revenue drop to the bottom line but freeing up resources to focus on other value-add services.”
