Western International Securities Selects SS&C’s Black Diamond to Revolutionize Client Experience


Black Diamond® Wealth Platform signs 82 new clients in the 2nd quarter of 2018 with latest addition of prominent broker dealer Western International Securities

WINDSOR, Conn.July 18, 2018 — SS&C Technologies Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq: SSNC), a global provider of financial services software and software-enabled services, today announced that Western International Securities (“Western”), an independent broker and advisor firm has chosen the Black Diamond Wealth Platform as their portfolio management, reporting and client experience solution.

Western International sought an intuitive and innovative solution for its base of 400 plus advisors nationwide to help them strengthen connections with their clients and prospects. Black Diamond’s client portal, Investor Experience, played a key role in Western’s decision as the portal allows advisors to offer their clients a personalized, custom-branded and interactive online environment. “As technology advances, our advisors expect these capabilities,” says Donald Bizub, CEO, Western International Securities. Through the portal, investors can see their financial data 24/7 and personalize their experience to have a clear picture of their spending, budgeting and goal tracking.

Along with the client portal, Black Diamond offered Western a scalable and flexible reporting solution that could grow with them as they continue to attract new teams. Already, Western has achieved greater efficiencies in its home office capabilities by centralizing reporting, business intelligence, and oversight tools with Black Diamond.

“Advisors are excited that we’re moving to Black Diamond. Many are already aware of the high-quality reports and dashboards, general ease of use and the intuitive and modern client portal,” said Andrew Kuo, Managing Director of Operations and Technology, Western International Securities.

“We are thrilled that Black Diamond can support Western as they continue to attract new clients,” said Bob Conchiglia, Vice President, Advisory Sales, SS&C Advent. “We are committed to delivering an outstanding digital experience to our clients so they have the tools and technology to provide their clients with unmatched value and insights into their wealth.”

The access roll-out will be available to Western this summer, with a launch at its annual conference in August.

Hi everyone! Nice to e-meet you! Here are a few things you should know about me. I am a conscientious, open-minded, adaptable to new experiences, and ambitious Business Development Manager with a Bachelor's Degree in Economics - Banking, Finance, and Accountancy. Through my studies, I've also obtained many naturopathic and nutrition degrees as well. Part-time jobs have added marketing, network marketing, event management, and store management skills to my experience throughout my career. Throughout my career, I have also been a Hotel Manager and owned a Bar/Restaurant & Internet Cafe. My online marketing and social media interactivity experience was gained when I and my husband started a business with an online/organic webshop & healthy lifestyle consultancy. I've improved my English at Cambridge Academy of English - 2003, in Cambridge. I live a conscious lifestyle, and try to protect the ecosystem. Animal lover and capable of helping others without judgment or negative reactions, this is thanked my knowledge in holistic therapies and the naturopathy courses I've followed. I cannot leave for my spiritual growth and the continuous development in alternative and holistic therapies, so I'm learning at Kyron School of New Consciousness, receiving a Bio Energo-therapist diploma. Thanks to all my experiences I've decided to venture into publishing and writing, while also continuing to learn many new things daily. I hope you enjoy reading my hand-picked news and check back for my weekly articles.
