The WealthStack Podcast: The Myth of the Perfect Tech Stack with Adrian Johnstone

Unveiling the dynamics between customization and universal solutions.


Is the perfect tech stack a unicorn…does it even exist? The battle between all-in-one versus best-of-breed wages on. But, Practifi, a performance optimization platform, is on a mission to help wealth management firms create the perfect tech stack. Can a firm get an idealized tech stack for their needs? Absolutely. Would it be perfect for the next firm? Almost certainly not. There is an importance of setting up a tech stack to mirror and support how advisors want to spend their time, which is why it’s so critical for technology to be flexible. 

In this episode, Shannon Rosic, director of WealthStack content and solutions, speaks with Adrian Johnstone, CEO of Practifi, about why the “perfect” tech stack will depend on a firm’s unique needs and priorities.

Shannon and Adrian discuss:

  • Why tech adoption still remains a challenge for many advisors 
  • The role of tech in improving client experience
  • What he has learned from the Australian and U.S. wealthtech markets 
  • What’s on the roadmap for Practifi
