Pascal Welcomes Marksman Asset Management to its Wealthtech Platform

Pascal’s fully integrated platform reduces the Portfolio Manager’s administrative processes and simplifies compliance, turning COVID-19 headwinds into tailwinds.

Pascal Financial today announced Marksman Asset Management, an Ontario-based Portfolio Manager, has launched on their SaaS wealthtech platform. Markman’s adoption of Pascal’s fully integrated digital wealthtech platform reflects Pascal’s growing presence in the Canadian wealth management sector and is the latest in a series of major announcements the company has made over the first two quarters of 2020.

Pascal’s intuitive and easy to use SaaS platform integrates and automates many of the client onboarding, client management, portfolio investment, and engagement activities, delivering the integrated digital technology portfolio managers needs to effectively scale their operations and grow their businesses during the current economic crisis. Marksman founder Mark Doyle estimates his firm now has 50% more time to focus on strengthening relationships to bring wealth management strategies to individuals and families to achieve their investment objectives as well as attracting clients with Pascal’s best in-class user experience.

“Prior to Pascal, I was spending half of my day on administrative and compliance requirements,” said Doyle.

“Pascal’s technology platform simplifies my practice by having a single digital platform that addresses client onboarding, client management, portfolio management custodial connectivity and increased compliance oversight. Pascal was the missing piece to build my business and deliver advice to clients.”
