“We were initially looking for a reporting solution to support the efforts of our advisors,” said Client One President Mike Tuma. “Once we delved deeper into combining client reporting, customer relationship management (CRM) capabilities and practice management, it seemed like a natural fit to choose First Rate’s ARKON.”
Client One manages approximately $900 Million in assets and is focused on streamlining its current capabilities with an integrated, comprehensive and relationship-centric wealth management platform. ARKON will provide Client One with the ability to support its practice and client relationships from a single platform.

Client One will also launch Lightning within the ARKON structure, which aims to provide streamlined reporting options backed by the full complement of First Rate’s reporting capabilities. Lightning, First Rate’s turnkey client reporting solution, focuses on supporting firms and institutions with growing operations.
