NEW YORK – May 25, 2012 – Xtiva Financial Systems, the leading provider of enterprise-wide compensation solutions for the financial services industry, announced today that it has signed a multi-year agreement with International Assets Advisory LLC (IAA), a fully-disclosed brokerage and investment advisory firm based in Orlando, Florida.
“We recently acquired a small institutional brokerage firm which necessitated that we evaluate our commission processing capabilities across all business lines,” said Mr. Ed Cofrancesco, President of IAA. “In addition, we have significant growth plans to more than double our base of Financial Consultants. To recruit the best advisors, we need to have a sales compensation system that is flexible and able to handle the maximum variety of payout and fee agreements. When we looked at the systems on the market, it was clear that Xtiva met all our stated requirements and more. We look forward to providing the most accurate, timely and meaningful information to our retail and institutional sales force.”
