SAN ANTONIO, Nov. 16, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- After an extensive search lasting over several years, Frost Bank of San Antonio, Texas has selected Fi-Tek LLC as their wealth management technology partner. Together, Frost Bank and Fi-Tek successfully implemented on May 31st, 2020 the full suite of GWES wealth management platform.

Subir Chatterjee, President & CEO of Fi-Tek LLC, commented on the successful implementation: "We have achieved a significant first with Frost Bank - the first client in our 20-year history where we implemented our platform 100% remotely due to the pandemic. We are delighted that Frost Bank's FWA and FIA groups selected our platform, and we at Fi-Tek and our subsidiary Rockit Solutions, look forward to a long and collaborative partnership."
Fi-Tek's GWES platform is an integrated solution for wealth management and trust on a single database, with the following major features: investment planning and proposal generation, client onboarding, investment management with modeling & rebalancing capabilities, trading with integrate OMS, GIPS compliant performance calculation engine, global securities processing and asset servicing, P&I accounting with global multi-currency capabilities, cash management, and extensive reporting capabilities including wealth analytics for data visualization. The platform interfaces with financial intermediaries through SWIFT, API's, and automated file extracts.
