Apex Clearing, the digital custody and clearing engine powering the future of wealth management, announced the launch of a new integration with Orion Advisor Solutions, the premier provider of the tech-enabled fiduciary framework that empowers financial advisors to Prospect, Plan, Invest, and Achieve within a single, connected experience. Under the integration, Apex’s account opening APIs are now available inside the client portal for advisors on Orion’s platform.

Using Apex’s technology, which powers market-leading digital mobile investing apps, Orion clients can now offer investors the ability to open accounts autonomously, directly via their client portal. This can be done through a simple, three-step process:
- Log into Client Portal: (Orion Planning)
- Open Account: Users enter all their information and complete the process via a checkbox that opens the account in real-time. The process can be completed in as little as five minutes.
- Fund Account: Clients can link their bank to their account right in the client portal and transfer the money right then and there.
“At Apex Clearing, we’re constantly innovating and enhancing our solutions to deliver the most frictionless investing process possible,” said Dustin Kirkland, Chief Product Officer of Apex Clearing. “A fully digital and instant experience is no longer considered added-value, it’s demanded by today’s tech-savvy consumers. As one of the first companies to digitize the rather antiquated and analog activities associated with securities clearing and custody, Apex has set the standard for the technology that drives many of today’s most popular fintechs – and now we’re bringing that same cutting-edge tech directly to advisors’ practices via Orion’s platform. More importantly, as advisors grow and add more clients to their rosters, they can rest assured knowing that Apex’s technology is there to help them scale in ways they couldn’t before.”
