IFP Partners with MyRepChat to Offer Texting to Advisors

by Max Griendling

Tampa, FL, 3/20/2019 – Independent Financial Partners (“IFP”), an SEC registered investment advisor and soon-to-be broker-dealer has inked a deal with MyRepChat, an SMS texting platform, to allow advisors who affiliate with the firm’s new broker-dealer to compliantly and efficiently send text messages to their clients.

MyRepChat brings a modern approach to client communication and offers a suite of features to make the process as seamless as possible. Their robust feature set includes text & group messaging, compliance tracking, scheduled messages, automated texting, auto-forwarding, and more. Through this cost-effective platform, IFP hopes to revolutionize the way IFP advisors communicate with their clients.

“We believe advisors deserve to communicate with their clients in a modern, compliant way without unnecessary red tape,” says IFP’s Chief Operating Officer, Chris Hamm. “With MyRepChat, our advisors will now have the tools to organically strengthen client relations while on the go.”

IFP’s advisors will be able to access MyRepChat as an application via Advisor[X], the firms’ new proprietary interface for financial advisors, or via MyRepChat’s mobile app on iOS and Android. After signing up, advisors will be given a separate phone number with the area code of their choosing from which they can start texting clients via MyRepChat. All messages between the advisor and his or her clients are instantly archived and surveilled by IFP.

“We are excited to be working with the team at Independent Financial Partners by helping to improve the communication between advisors and clients. This is the foundation on which MyRepChat was built,” said Derrick Girard, CEO of ionlake, the creators of MyRepChat.

MyRepChat will be available to all IFP advisors as soon as the firm transitions to its new broker-dealer in May of this year.
