My best advice
Start by discussing your transition with colleagues who have already made the move and use their insights to determine your top custodial contenders. Interview those custodians to determine the best one to serve your firm. A good custodian will help you narrow down your technology choices and ultimately help you select solutions that will not only integrate with their platform, but will streamline your business processes. Overall, a great custodian will walk you through every step of the transition process to make the move as seamless and painless as possible for your firm, your staff and most importantly, your valuable clients.
