WEALTH DATA SHARING REIMAGINED

We had  a chance to combine decades of experience with the best financial technology has to offer and have completely reimagined data aggregation. The result is a next-generation wealth data aggregation and data sharing platform that is rapidly being adopted by some of wealth management's most important companies. 

A MODERN AGGREGATION ECO-SYSTEM

PCR technology has been built to not only provide a scalable data aggregation utility, but also to deliver data management and integration services that help firms enrich and streamline how their data is put to work in firm-wide systems.   We produced many innovations along the way.

1
AUTOMATION OF NON-STRUCTURED CONTENT

60% of the data we process is for illiquid investments such as hedge funds, private equity, real estate and personal business interests.  75% of these assets are delivered by email and portals and in the form of a PDF or other non-structured content.    We developed special technologies that allow us to ingest 85% of this information without human intervention.

ANALYSIS READY DATA

PCR uses an Accounting-Based Approach to aggregation which causes all activity to translate into transactions, coded with standard transaction codes regardless of source and associated with a robust, market-data-fed security master.  The result is Data Quality and Consistency that can be used directly in other reporting and analytic systems.

PRIVACY AND SECURITY BUILT-IN

 

PCR uses an Accounting-Based Approach to aggregation which causes all activity to translate into transactions, coded with standard transaction codes regardless of source and associated with a robust, market-data-fed security master.  The result is Data Quality and Consistency that can be used directly in other reporting and analytic systems.

CONSENT TECH

We built the first Digital Consent platform for aggregation that does not rely on credential sharing or screen scraping.    The process securely captures account information and produces Digital Letters of Authorization that do not have to be printed, signed, scanned or otherwise manually processed.

 

PRIVACY TECH

Personal data, account numbers and investment data are stored in separate data centers.  This groundbreaking approach requires that three data centers be breached simultaneously to associate your information. Combined with best-in-class hosting, encryption and security practices, PCR is a platform of choice for many leading institutions and families.

REGULATORY TECH

Whether as required by GDPR or emerging privacy regulations in the US (California) we built data subject rights management into the platform from the start.   Workflows support information requests, delete me, give me a copy of my data etc.   Personal information may also be hosted within multiple regulatory jurisdictions (e.g. Switzerland, Canada).
