NEW YORK, Nov. 7, 2017 — 55ip, LLC (formerly known as 55 Institutional Partners, LLC), a leading investment science and technology firm, announces the launch the 55ip Investment Platform, which includes the company's proprietary Strategy Builder and Tax Optimization tools. These are the first in a suite of technology solutions from 55ip, created to enable independent registered investment advisors (RIAs) and wealth managers to easily design personalized ETF portfolios and deliver better outcomes for clients. Among the first clients to use and adopt the 55ip platform are United Advisors, an advisor and wealth management support platform, and Vine Street Wealth Management LLC, the technology-savvy investment advisory firm based in Mill Valley, CA.

The 55ip platform was designed and built by 55ip's top team of investment scientists, award-winning academic researchers and seasoned industry professionals.

“There's a new breed of registered investment advisor out there: they're entrepreneurial, purpose-driven and understand that custom risk, tax and fee sensitive investment solutions can help their clients achieve their goals,” said Paul Gamble, CEO of 55ip. “We've built a robust tech-enabled platform, informed by the best investment science available to help advisors provide personalized investment strategies for their clients in a consumable, scalable way. Our platform can be customized with an advisor's own brand, can help them differentiate their value, and can scale their business.”

“In addition to our 'design, analyze and execute' interface, users of the 55ip platform also have access to the firm's brain trust of research partners, award-winning academic thinkers and macro advisors: some of the best minds in the financial world,” said 55ip Founder and Chairman Dr. Vinay Nair. “We've focused on empowering advisors with scientific and algorithmic features that can be used in isolation or mixed as desired to create personalized portfolios that enable clients to keep more of their money thanks to reduced fees, taxes and risk.”

“We launched Vine Street because we felt that there is an opportunity to disrupt the wealth management industry with more transparent and customizable approaches than are currently available.” said Sasha Kovriga, Vine Street Wealth Management Partner. “55ip allows us to efficiently create tax optimized and risk averse portfolios for our clients. We're particularly impressed with the transparency, flexibility and precision that 55ip affords us in designing truly customized solutions.”

“A year ago, we began offering a range of 55ip's ETF portfolio strategies to our registered investment advisor clients, and the feedback was extremely positive,” said Mark Penske, Chairman and CEO, United Advisors. “Because our success relies on our clients, we're always seeking ways to give them the best tools possible. We are delighted that we can now offer them 55ip's open, brandable, scalable and sophisticated platform and tools.”
