Below, we offer our picks from the array of platforms and instruments for financial advising and wealth management. See what Fintech has on offer, find an app for yourself, or decide how to gauge your product to serve your clients best.

Financial research & communication tools

Schwab Mobile from The Charles Schwab Corporation

No login or subscription is required.

Use Schwab Mobile to get market updates from the Schwab Center for Financial Research, delivered several times a trading day. A multi-source compilation of articles from popular and reputable media forms an insightful and informative news feed for financial services experts. 

Although the app was created for Schwab’s retail clients, it’s a fitting pick for advisors and wealth managers who want to keep up with the markets daily.

This app has a Schwab “sibling” — Schwab Advisor Center Mobile. This one will be useful if you’re an independent advisor who wants to monitor and manage client accounts wherever you are.
