Integrity will use the firm’s new Wove wealth management platform to help its network of wealth management professionals manage more than $40 billion of assets.

NEW YORK, October 4, 2023 / PRNewswire / -- BNY Mellon’s Pershing X (NYSE: BK) announced today that Integrity Marketing Group, LLC (“Integrity”), a leading insurance and financial services firm, has selected the firm’s Wove wealth management platform to support its wealth management business.

Integrity is a leading distributor of life and health insurance, and provider of innovative solutions for wealth management and retirement planning. The firm has a nationwide network of over 550,000 insurance agents, registered investment advisors, registered representatives and other wealth management professionals.

“We are thrilled to welcome Integrity as a new Wove client and support their growth strategy with our scalable solution,” said Ainslie Simmonds, President, Pershing X. “This speaks to the value Wove offers to the marketplace. Our platform will aid Integrity’s insurance agents by equipping them with a toolkit designed to help them expand their wealth management capabilities.”

The models—designed to optimize wealth accumulation, retirement income portfolios and capital preservation—will be stored on the Wove platform. BNY Mellon’s Pershing will also provide a full set of broker-dealer clearing and custody solutions.
