BROOKFIELD, Wis.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Inc. (NASDAQ: FISV), a leading global provider of financial services
technology solutions, is equipping financial institutions to better
serve beginning investors with the addition of tailored digital advice
and education to Wealth Management Network from Fiserv. Fiserv is adding
these capabilities through an agreement with the financial services
startup GoldBean. The agreement resulted from GoldBean's participation
in the INV Fintech accelerator launched last year by Bank Innovation
and Fiserv to further innovation in financial services.
The GoldBean capabilities will be available to Fiserv clients on Wealth
Management Network and can also be integrated with Unified Wealth
Platform from Fiserv to support a single-platform strategy with a
traditional managed-account program, helping financial advisors attract
new customers with relevant new services.
"The GoldBean focus on advice and education for beginning investors
brings a fresh approach to the wealth industry, where developing the
pipeline of future wealth clients is a strategic imperative, but has not
been well addressed from a product perspective," said Cheryl Nash,
president, Investment Services, Fiserv. "The partnership provides our
clients with a low-cost digitally enabled advisory model that opens the
door to new investors by providing them with a digital channel to start
investing at their own speed."
GoldBean is a graduate of the INV Fintech Accelerator designed to
cultivate high-potential startups from around the globe and connect them
with financial institutions that have an appetite for innovation. Bank
Innovation and Fiserv developed the accelerator program with support
from multiple participants including financial institutions and industry
mentors. The program aims to drive innovation in financial services by
making new capabilities available to more people.
GoldBean is an "investing for beginners" platform that was designed to
promote financial literacy and empower users to be confident,
self-directed investors. By analyzing people's actual spending, the
GoldBean digital investment platform creates customized portfolios
featuring companies and brands that end users already know and use every
day. The platform's education modules and software help build strong
financial habits and turn savers into investors. GoldBean's capabilities
can be leveraged by financial institutions, banks, and credit unions to
provide financial education to their client base.
GoldBean utilizes an education-first approach to help financial
institutions activate new investors. While Millennials are the focus,
the educational content on the platform appeals to beginning investors
of any age who may have never invested outside of their employers'
defined contribution plans. GoldBean education content covers the entire
spectrum of earning, saving, borrowing and investing money, including a
"financial learning center" which can also be implemented as a
standalone feature for banks and credit unions.
"Our mission is to turn savers into confident investors," said Jane
Barratt, founder and CEO, GoldBean. "Our agreement with Fiserv, prompted
as a result of our participation in the INV Fintech accelerator, will
enable us to reach a much wider audience as we work with financial
institutions to reach their customers with investment advice and
