About Us
A cognitive finance solution for modern wealth management.

The power of AI in your corner

Today there are a dizzying amount of systems and information financial professionals need to stay up to date with for their clients. Account data, portfolio detail, CRM activities & notes, product updates, marketing materials, strategy pieces, thought leadership, market data, news, financial goal tracking, and the list goes on and on.

Great relationship managers and advisors leverage their talented teams to pull together this information on a daily basis and make sense of it for their priority clients. That is a lot of time-consuming, manual work and only for the top 20% of clients with the highest AUM. What about everyone else? Is there value in the other 80% of your book of business? What important signals and insights are you missing… daily?

ForwardLane was founded by financial professionals in 2015, for financial professionals. We saw advisors at top-tier wealth managers struggling with information overload and the manual, ad hoc work that goes hand-in-hand with high-touch client relationships. Meanwhile, clients have become more demanding and expect relevant, personalized experiences at every interaction.

We knew there was a better way, so our team of financial experts, technologists and organizational strategists committed to finding new solutions to deliver on this ever-growing problem. The answer lies in technology that augments and empowers the financial professional, not replacing them.

ForwardLane’s AI solutions are able to look across disparate systems, CRMs, investment platforms, portfolios, news and more, to surface meaningful information swiftly. Directly accessible in your daily workflow, our solutions are fast, easy-to-use and get smarter over time.

The result?
Spend more time focused on client engagement. Be the trusted advisor and provide every client with the most relevant, personalized experiences without the manual effort and time-consuming tasks. You are fully prepared with whom to reach out to, what to say and content to share and never miss an important signal or update.
