Expansion of Schwab OpenView Gateway
Schwab OpenView Gateway, the flexible, open-architecture technology platform that enables integration between Schwab systems and those of participating technology providers, is extending its reach to include integration with financial planning and trading and rebalancing providers.
The Gateway program will now include Tamarac’s popular Advisor Rebalancing® application. Advisors will be able to access Schwab’s real-time custody data via the application to make more informed rebalancing and trade execution decisions. Tamarac will also be integrating with Schwab’s new web trading platform to provide advisors with streamlined processing of account-level trades as well as block trades and allocations.
In addition, Schwab Intelligent Technologies is announcing the participation of two technology providers who offer financial planning solutions: PIEtech’s MoneyGuidePro and Zywave’s NaviPro Planning Suite. Initial integrations with Zywave and MoneyGuidePro will be focused on facilitating the seamless integration of client profile and client account information including balances and positions, creating more efficiency for advisors and operational staff.
