Total Bank Solutions (TBS) and Advisor Credit Exchange (ACE) Partner To Offer Automated Securities-Based Lending Service

HACKENSACK, NEW JERSEY, UNITED STATES, March 10, 2022 – Total Bank Solutions (TBS) and Advisor Credit Exchange (ACE) to Partner and Offer Automated Securities-Based Lending Service. Through this partnership, advisors will benefit from expanded credit solutions, and banks will gain access to new sources of loans.

Total Bank Solutions (TBS) and Advisor Credit Exchange (ACE) today announced that ACE integrated TBS’ Loan Management System (LMS) into the Advisor Credit Exchange platform, an innovative solution designed to bring a wide range of lending options to advisors. LMS is a fully automated, end-to-end system designed to streamline the origination, underwriting, and collateral evaluation and monitoring functions supporting securities-based lending. TBS has redefined what ‘end-to-end’ means for securities-based lending by fully integrating these formerly disparate components.

“Integrating LMS within the broader Advisor Credit Exchange is a natural fit because the combined solution offers advisors and their clients access to a wider range of lending solutions,” said Mike Musial, Managing Director, Securities-Based Lending at TBS. He added, “ACE’s ability to expose advisors to tailored lending products and inform them about all their clients’ pre qualified loan opportunities is extremely valuable, especially as advisors seek to offer a more comprehensive approach to wealth management, including liability management.”

The ACE platform provides financial advisors with a 360-degree view of various loans available to their clients. If a securities-based line of credit is the appropriate solution, a loan request passes seamlessly into the TBS platform for prefilled application generation and client delivery. Lenders can then complete the underwriting process with auto-decision logic and monitor the underlying collateral post-close entirely through the integrated TBS system.

“The best software is always created by people who have lived in the industry and understand how to apply technology to drive productivity. We pride ourselves on that here at ACE and instantly recognized the same competence at TBS,” said Peter Stanton, CEO of Advisor Credit Exchange. “Combining not only our industry-leading software but also our unparalleled experience makes the ACE-TBS partnership ideally positioned for today’s holistic wealth management environment.”
