Build Your Own Robo-Advisor

Create your own Robo IRA program using your fund lineup, fee schedule, methodology and branding.

What is Robo-Architect?

At some point in the near future, recommending a rollover to a participant is going to be a fiduciary act. Period. Inspira’s RoboArchitect platform was created for precisely this reason. If you’re going to be a fiduciary no matter what, then why not embrace the role? RoboArchitect gives you the power to build your own investment suitability and advice questionnaire with these key features:

  • Multiple question formats to fit your methodology
  • Open architecture design to promote investment flexibility
  • Ability to set a fee schedule that fits your business model
  • Have account holders sign your advisory agreement
  • Ability to set up models OR portfolios

We designed RoboArchitect to meet the needs of today’s independent investment advisors. The new regulatory landscape in our industry makes proving that the services you’ve rendered to your clients are documented and in the client’s best interest. Create your own Robo platform and remove any doubt.

Why create your own Robo-Advisor?

Everyone wants to capture rollovers, but today’s regulatory environment makes getting compensated on rollovers a dicey proposition. Instead of worrying about Best Interest Contracts or other convoluted exemptions, now you can quickly and easily create your firm’s own branded IRA product:

  • Capture rollovers that are leaving your plans
  • Offer a solution for those who want Payroll Deduction IRAs
  • Provide obvious value that justifies your compensation
  • You choose the funds, you give the advice

Virtually any insight you offer to a participant or client will now be scrutinized as a fiduciary act. If you’re going to be considered a fiduciary regardless, why not go all-in? Creating your own IRA Robo-Advisor gives you full control without a full-time commitment.

The Inspira Un-Cashed Check Solution

Inspira has a solution for uncashed and stale-dated checks that will keep you compliant, reduce your costs, and ensure a positive outcome for the missing participant. We will help you create a documented uncashed check procedure that alleviates your existing problem and all but eliminates uncashed checks in the future:

  • Rollover uncashed and stale-dated checks into IRAs
  • Invest IRA assets into a default investment with a GMIR of 1.00%
  • Comprehensive search efforts to locate the participant through multiple channels

Inspira’s uncashed check solution features a low annual fee that, when paired with the Lincoln Fixed Account as the default investment, provides accountholders with the lowest annual accountholder expense in the industry. Once an accountholder is located and notified, they can withdraw their funds online, continue contributing to the IRA and diversify, or roll the account into another retirement vehicle.
