New York, Feb. 08, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Flourish, a platform that provides innovative access to financial products that help registered investment advisors (RIAs) improve their clients’ financial outcomes, today announced that Flourish Cash, its cash management solution, and Flourish Crypto, its cryptocurrency investing offering, were recognized as “Software All Stars” in the 2024 T3 / Inside Information Software Survey.
Conducted by industry veterans Joel Bruckstein of Technology Tools for Today (T3) and Bob Veres of Inside Information, the survey combines insights from thousands of advisors and historical data to serve as a comprehensive guide for advisors seeking to optimize technology for client service and office efficiencies. Standout solutions, identified as Software All Stars, are highlighted if they achieve exceptional (at least 8.0) average user ratings and significant market penetration.
In the Automated Cash Management category, Flourish Cash secured a rare 9.02 rating, while Flourish Crypto earned 8.57 in the Cryptocurrency/Alts category. The survey also revealed that of the 130 surveyed advisory firms considering a cash management solution, Flourish Cash is their top choice. This is the fifth year in a row Flourish Cash has achieved the highest rating.
“We are thrilled to have our products highlighted as Software All Stars and, following a momentous year for Flourish Cash, we are incredibly pleased to see this solution in particular receive the highest category rating, highest market share, and highest growth—all by a significant margin. Flourish’s products are built explicitly for RIAs and it is a high bar to earn praise from financial advisors,” said Max Lane, CEO of Flourish.
