This feature gives users the ability to route block orders to multiple average price accounts and allocate underlying trades accordingly. Prior to the October release, firms could only have one average price account per custodian. This is a great benefit for larger firms that previously struggled because of different advisor groups who each traded via their own average price account.
Advisors now have the ability to quickly see why a client account or portfolio triggered a Monitor exception. Whether asset classes are out of tolerance or accounts are short of cash, users can now view more detailed information as they decide whether or not to take action on their client's behalf.
We have launched additional benchmarking capabilities, alternative investment reporting flexibility, and more. Advisors should contact their Client Representative to turn on these exciting new features. Areas where Reporting Flexibility features have been introduced or enhanced include Client View (enhanced), Client Experience Portal (new), Advisory Reports: Alternative Investments (enhanced), Client Reports: Performance Reporting (enhanced).
Search and view all the trades for a given session holistically. Within the experience, advisors can also choose to add a trade as well as make any edits to quantity, price, or value for existing trades.
Review fixed income and alternatives reporting for non-relationship related portfolios within the Advisor Reports area of the Business Intelligence application. With the upcoming retirement of the legacy Portfolio View application, Business Intelligence is the new home for insights into portfolio exceptions not part of a relationship.
Here advisors can launch straight into exploring commission-free solutions and leverage a range of resources that make it easy to implement insurance as part of their clients' financial plans. The space also displays a relationship-specific account list of selected policies detailing the carrier, current market value, tax status, and more so they can analyze the information in the context of a client’s entire financial life.
Trades can now be added from directly within the Trade Blotter page for increased efficiency. Plus, more robust trade warnings, the option to restrict trading based on classification data, and insights into the last time a client was rebalanced have also been added.
Highlights include upgraded reporting content with more extensive data options and performance optimization along with settings management customization for Firm Administrators that extends all the way down to the card level. In addition, holistic relationship level visualizations and filtering for custom-defined relationship, portfolio, account, asset, and holding tags/groups will be added later this year.
A custodial export formatted specifically for Raymond James is now available within Finalized Billing Runs. This provides the ability to export fee data in a format that is directly unloadable to the custodian without any adjustments.
Document-signing workflows are now available. The integration incorporates client reminders through the To-Do-List, automatic envelope and recipient creation, advisor notifications upon completion, Vault storage, and more.
A number of noteworthy advancements to Rebalancer were made. Including:
Seamless access between Black Diamond and eMoney is now possible thanks to bi-directional single-sign-on for both advisors and their clients.
Home is a dashboard providing a well-rounded relationship snapshot and connection to where firms need to go using their choice of configurable widgets. Along with pertinent insights from across Client View, Home also features Rebalancer and Billing specifics and will launch users directly into client-related workflows.
We’ve streamlined how firms can set up and manage relationships. Clients can now ensure a firm user’s relationship access coincides with their account access using an automated sync. In addition, all firms using the daily feed with the Redtail CRM integration now have access to the relationship and contact sync.
From the Connections menu, clients can use single-sign-on to launch directly into the marketplace.
The Accounts Receivable system is designed to identify fees billed against those which have been received to provide current and outstanding revenue information. The functionality is also designed to work with the use of Billing Accounts, Pay by Invoice Accounts, as well as with Fee Attribution. This is now available as an optional feature and can be activated upon request.
Specific tax lots can now be selected during sales transactions. Firms now have the ability to override an account's tax lot disposition method by directly indicating which tax lots should be disposed for a given asset's sale transaction. Firms can quickly identify the lots that are being disposed for a sale transaction on the Trade Tab within the Trade Order of a specific client by selecting the arrow next to each sales transaction.
Firms can bulk invite, or re-invite, their clients to the portal and gain visibility into their usage through the improved Client User page within your Client Experience application.
Black Diamond's Client View application consolidates all client-centric details, workflows, and third-party integrations already found within Black Diamond into a single, interconnected command center. Client View enables advisors to consolidate and access their client's entire financial lives.
Advisors can take the pulse of their business, identify trends and outliers, and examine the finer details of advisor performance and their client relationships. Granular permission controls, compliance-ready formats, report automation, and more make oversight manageable while providing a 360-degree view into your practice.
Black Diamond's Rebalancer provides daily reconciliation allowing advisors to see what accounts or households need attention from a trading perspective. The robust modeling framework, proactive monitoring, straight-through trade processing, and tax-efficient capabilities keep even the most complex portfolios aligned with a client’s goals.
Through a custom-branded, interactive client portal, advisors can document advisor-client communications, showcase dynamic portfolio metrics, post to a secure document vault, incorporate outside account aggregation, balance sheet reporting, and more.
Advisors can itemize their value by structuring fees in a way that makes sense to both the advisor and their clients. The countless configuration settings and built in workflows allow a streamlined process, eliminating the need to run billing more than once per period.
This video shows how Client View works as an advisor’s one-stop-shop and data command center that supports a more personalized approach to managing their client's financial life - past, present, and future.
