Sliced Investing Partners With CONCERT Wealth Management

CONCERT Now Offers Its Advisors Competitive Funds Through Sliced's RIA Platform, Sliced Institutional

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - September 24, 2015) - Today, Sliced Investing, an online platform that gives investment advisors access to elite alternative investments, announced a partnership with CONCERT Wealth Management. CONCERT, a registered investment advisory firm, will leverage the Sliced Investing platform, Sliced Institutional, to streamline hedge fund and private equity investing for their 90 financial advisors and partner firms.

"We're thrilled to work with CONCERT and provide the infrastructure and technology to both access top investments and automate the process of making an alternative investment," said Mike Furlong, founder and CEO of Sliced Investing. "As wealth managers pivot away from banks to become independent advisors, their need for the resources they left behind grows. CONCERT's partnership with Sliced is an excellent example of the growing infrastructure being built to usher wealth managers' evolving needs and processes."

Experts estimate that nearly 80 percent of all high net worth investors in the United States export all their financial decisions to investment advisors. Independent advisors manage over $4 trillion in wealth and are growing at a rate of approximately 14 percent year over year. CONCERT, which has more than $2 billion in assets under management, gives independent financial advisors the institutional infrastructure that a bank would, while providing the services they need to scale their businesses.

By integrating Sliced Institutional, CONCERT eliminates the large operational burden undertaken by advisors to deploy client capital into many elite products not accessible at the major custodians. Additionally, Sliced Institutional automates all the manual processes associated with private fund investing -- subscription document signing, reporting, custodial integrations, CRM integrations and more.

"Sliced Investing is a strong compliment to our existing offering," said Felipe Luna, founder and CEO of CONCERT. "We view this addition as a key competitive advantage for any advisor that comes to CONCERT, furthering our goal to become an integrated turnkey asset management platform."
