The ultimate objective to create an end-to-end, holistic wealth management experience seems simple in theory, but it continues to be difficult for the wealth management industry to execute on. Fortunately, BetaNXT is hyper-focused on solving customers’ most demanding integration challenges with flexible, efficient, connected solutions that anticipate their changing needs.
In this episode, Shannon Rosic, director of WealthStack Content and Solutions, speaks with Stephen Daffron, CEO of BetaNXT, on creating a “frictionless” wealth management experience and what it means for advisors, financial services and wealthtech firms that serve them.

- Why BetaNXT is championing the next wave in wealth management technology and outsourcing solutions;
- The importance of advisors utilizing real-time data;
- Why BetaNXT is focused on solving customers most-demanding integration challenges; and
