CHICAGO – December 12, 2017 – Envestnet announced today that Hancock and Whitney Bank has selected Envestnet’s platform to power both its broker-dealer and trust business lines, allowing investment professionals across the bank to leverage integrated One Wealth technology without disrupting their current back office infrastructure.
Hancock and Whitney Bank began making Envestnet’s services available to its advisors within their broker-dealer unit in late August, and the platform is expected to roll out to the bank’s asset management and trust division in early 2018.
As part of the new integration, Hancock and Whitney Bank plans to leverage Envestnet’s automated compliance workflow for investment and administrative reviews, as well as enhanced fixed income portfolio management within a unified managed account structure. Hancock and Whitney Bank’s investment professionals also have access to the integrated client portal that seamlessly integrates goals-based planning, Yodlee-powered data aggregation, and financial wellness solutions.
“Having a more unified platform across business lines will enable greater advisor productivity and allow us to efficiently deploy common portfolio management solutions across all client segments from mass affluent to ultra-high-net-worth and institutional.” said Hancock and Whitney Bank’s Chief Wealth Management Officer Miles Milton. “With Envestnet as a strategic partner, we can devote more time to promoting a more consistent and goal-based client experience across our business segments and support enhanced advice-based client engagement. This move further advances our progress towards becoming more of an Essential Advisor—fostering a deeper relationship with clients to better understand and anticipate their evolving needs and offering guidance and solutions to life transitions that can be impactful.”
“We’re thrilled that Hancock and Whitney Bank is utilizing our platform to create a One Wealth experience. This will facilitate significant efficiencies and create excess capacity needed to power growth across business lines and client segments,” said John Yackel, Executive Managing Director at Envestnet. “There are increasingly complex demands to advise and serve clients in the bank wealth space, as well as to grow businesses and effectively manage risk. Our services enhance productivity and ultimately streamline the daily workload for wealth advisors, trust officers, and portfolio managers, freeing up time devoted to client–centric activities. “
Thirty-four of the 50 leading banks use Envestnet to help design, develop, and deploy a more profitable operating model for managing their client’s retail, high-net-worth, and institutional businesses. Hancock and Whitney Bank is the latest in a list of several financial institutions that are taking advantage of Envestnet’s unique One Wealth offering, which allows institutions to simplify their platform with technology that integrates multiple business lines into one unified, intelligent system.
