Conquest Planning, a Winnipeg, Canada-based technology platform modernizing financial planning with customized and convenient advice, announced that it raised $24 million (CAD) in Series A funding, bringing its total funding to almost $35 million (CAD).
The round was led by Fidelity International Strategic Ventures and joined by existing capital partners Portage and new investors BNY Mellon and Royal Bank of Canada (“RBC”).
The fresh funds will support Conquest’s continued growth and investments in its platform user experience, and its ongoing expansion into key markets such as the United States and the United Kingdom.
Dr. Mark Evans, CEO of Conquest Planning, said: “Demand for tech-enabled financial experiences, whether consumer-initiated or advisor-led, is increasing exponentially. We are proud to work with reputable and forward-thinking firms that recognize the scope of this opportunity. Each of our partners brings far more than capital to the table—they offer key strategic benefits that will undoubtedly prove instrumental in our efforts to scale and make a difference in people’s financial lives.”
Conquest’s platform helps advisors and consumers easily understand the impact of holistic financial decisions while underscoring the true value of advice, further deepening their collaborative relationships.
The easy-to-use platform enables advisors to provide advice at a scale that’s built for the unique needs of individuals and families—a challenge at many wealth management firms with disparate client bases.
Conquest is on a mission to reduce this number substantially, arming advisors with an AI-based strategic advice manager (SAM) that empowers them to build flexible plans quickly and with a high degree of accuracy.
