We are excited to acquire the sales enablement and client communication platforms from Fortuna. This technology will give Cy and the advisors using the platform the tools to supercharge growth and efficiently scale their business,” said Matt Schreiber, CEO of CyborgTech. “About 5 years ago, the Fortuna team came together with a mission to connect advisors with high-net worth prospects. Since then, we’ve helped 1000s of financial advisors with an entirely new way to get in front of new clients. The fact is that post-pandemic the vast majority of client acquisition begins online. Today, we’re very excited to announce this acquisition to further our original mission. Cy has built a platform to onboard this client base in a seamless manner. It’s a natural fit, we’re very excited to give end consumers direct access to investment management,” said Omer Jamal, CEO of Fortuna. Cy is expected to embed Fortuna’s technology to further streamline the financial advisor’s business practice, digitize wealth management and improve client investment outcomes. The economics terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.
