OMAHA, CA--(Marketwired - August 05, 2015) -

  • Fuse is the Financial Technology Industry's First and Only Conference Geared Solely Towards Developers and Creating New Technology Solutions for Advisors
  • Orion Advisor Services is the Nation's Largest Privately-Held Portfolio Accounting Provider

Orion Advisor Services, LLC, ("Orion") the premier portfolio accounting service provider for advisors, has announced it will host its second annual Fuse conference for financial technology developers. The event will again take place in Park City, Utah, from September 10th to 13th.

"If our mission is the empowerment of advisors via the delivery of cutting edge technology, well, you can't do that by standing still," said Eric Clarke, CEO and President of Orion. "Fuse is designed to deliver innovative concepts for advisor tech, to push the envelope - and we expect the event to grow to support more developers and to see an even greater benefit for independent advisors and the technology they use every day."

Developers from dozens of advisor technology firms assemble at Fuse to work together to create integrated solutions and move the industry as a whole forward. It is a living, breathing technology event, and with a focus on practical developments coming out of the weekend, advisors will again see immediate benefits following the conference.

Fuse 2014 award winners Riskalyze, AdvisoryWorld, Laser App, and Sagacious, Inc. will return to participate on creating new enhancements.

"After years of stagnant development, 2015 is clearly the year of Advisor FinTech," said Michael Kitces, publisher of the financial planning industry blog Nerd's Eye View. "Orion's efforts to create this Advisor FinTech 'Hackathon' have the potential to greatly accelerate the development of technology solutions for advisors. I'm thrilled to be participating as a judge this year, and can't wait to see what will come forth from the competition!"

Judges who will determine the best solutions developed include Ryan Beach, President of CLS Investments; J.D. Bruce, CPA, PFS, President of Abacus Wealth Partners; Joel Bruckenstein, Founder of Technology Tools for Today; Michael Kitces, Publisher of Kitces.com and Partner at Pinnacle Advisory Group; Billy Oliverio, Vice President of Investment Advisory Services at United Planners Financial Services; Steve Sanduski, Founder of Belay Advisor; and Bill Winterberg, CFP, Founder of FPPad.com.
