Trust Company Innovates Wealth Advising Industry With Powerful Tech

AET has built a fully digital product for RIAs to manage their customers and automate time-consuming tasks

LAS VEGAS - September 24, 2020 - (

​​​​​​FinTech-focused Trust Company and Custodian AET released Trust Platform: a product that digitizes client onboarding and reporting for financial advisors. Advisors can invite customers to invest in a variety of alternative assets. Customers can also link bank accounts and deposit funds within a single user-friendly system. Trust Platform is designed to consolidate and automate day-to-day operations for RIAs while reducing time spent on compliance.

Trust Platform includes:

  • Business Portal - for Advisors to manage client portfolios, collect fees, and share forms
  • Investor Portal - for clients to deposit funds, check performance, and approve investments
  • "We've been working with RIAs for a decade. Whether they run boutique, specialized firms or large-scale companies with hundreds of clients, we understand their needs and pain points at every level," says Gabriel Ferrin, Head of Product at AET. "Trust Platform was designed as a turnkey solution to reduce those administrative, compliance, and operational burdens of the financial industry while improving the user experience for RIA customers."

    With so many RIAs still relying on faxes and snail mail to execute simple account openings, there's a lot of demand for a more efficient process. The Trust Platform feature set is robust, managing funds and forms alike. The system removes pen and paper from the customer onboarding process as well as collects funds directly on the platform. Not only does Trust Platform take the stress away from the RIA, but it also improves the experience for their clients - providing unparalleled value.

    Trust Platform aggregates and tracks client data so advisors can turn their performance-reporting hassles into a clean, self-service process. Performance reporting has historically been a time-consuming issue for financial advisors. Surprisingly, there has been little innovation in this space other than the minor upgrade from physical statements to digital ones. Less time preparing reports means more time improving the core of their business and attracting new clients.

    "RIAs can take a deep breath knowing that Trust Platform comes with the necessary compliance measures baked into the system," says Summer Webb, Head of Business Development for AET. As a licensed trust company regulated in the state of Nevada, AET must perform due diligence to ensure platform users are acting in good faith and are adhering to all regulatory requirements. This removes time, cost, and unnecessary third parties from the compliance process; an attractive alternative to hiring a compliance consultant to do all of this for them.

    American Estate & Trust (AET) focuses on improving financial services for the New Economy since 2007. By pairing its expertise in traditional retirement solutions with forward-thinking technical innovations, AET is set to pave the way for a new generation of money, business, and personal finance.

    Counting whales from space pitched as key to saving them

    Oct 27, 2020

    PORTLAND, Maine — An aquarium and an engineering firm in Massachusetts are partnering on a project to better protect whales by monitoring them from space. New England Aquarium of Boston and Draper of Cambridge say whale conservation needs new, higher-tech solutions to protect whales from extinction. So, the pair is working together using data from sources such as satellites, sonar and radar to keep a closer eye on how many whales are in the ocean. The effort has an easy to understand name for a project involving complex data and surveillance — the aquarium and firm are calling the project...

    US heads to court to build Trump border wall in Texas

    Oct 27, 2020

    HOUSTON — Three years into Donald Trump's presidency, the U.S. government is ramping up its efforts to seize private land in Texas to build a border wall. Trump's signature campaign promise has consistently faced political, legal, and environmental obstacles in Texas, which has the largest section of the U.S.-Mexico border, most of it without fencing. And much of the land along the Rio Grande, the river that forms the border in Texas, is privately held and environmentally sensitive. Almost no land has been taken so far. But Department of Justice lawyers have filed three lawsuits this month seeking to take...

    Space Force will start small but let Trump claim a big win

    Oct 27, 2020

    WASHINGTON — The Trump administration is celebrating the launch of Space Force, the first new military service in more than 70 years. In signing the 2020 National Defense Authorization Act that includes Space Force, Trump on Friday can claim a victory for one of his top national security priorities just two days after being impeached by the House. It is part of a $1.4 trillion government spending package — including the Pentagon's budget — that provides a steady stream of financing for Trump's U.S.-Mexico border fence and reverses unpopular and unworkable automatic spending cuts to defense and domestic programs. Space...

    House passes $1.4T government spending bill amid impeachment

    Oct 27, 2020

    WASHINGTON — The Democratic-controlled House voted Tuesday to pass a $1.4 trillion government spending package, handing President Donald Trump a victory on his U.S.-Mexico border fence while giving Democrats spending increases across a swath of domestic programs. The hard-fought legislation also funds a record Pentagon budget and is serving as a must-pass legislative locomotive to tow an unusually large haul of unrelated provisions into law, including an expensive repeal of Obama-era taxes on high-cost health plans, help for retired coal miners, and an increase from 18 to 21 in the nationwide legal age to buy tobacco products. The two-bill package,...
