Custodial Partners

Connecting advisors to custodians. 

InvestLink allows advisors to configure the investment offering suited to their clients’ needs. It allows Aspire to serve as an objective service provider, offering investments without the potential for the conflicts of interest that many other firms encounter.

The centerpiece of Aspire’s open-architecture solution is the freedom to:

  • Select a custodian – work with the industry’s top custodians for competitive pricing and ancillary support services.

  • Select any available investments by designated custodian – allows access to thousands of brand- name mutual funds, ETFs, collective investment funds (CIFs) and stable value funds.

In addition, Aspire supports a variety of non-standard assets, fixed annuities, unitization services and third-party investment managers.
