David Benskin, Founder and CEO, Wealth Access
David Benskin is the Founder and CEO of Wealth Access, Inc., a SaaS company that helps high net worth individuals and their advisors better manage wealth. Formerly a First Vice President and partner on a Merrill Lynch Private Banking and Investments team, David spent over thirteen years with the company. David had seen software come and go, but nothing helped him or his clients gain a holistic view and make better, more collaborative decisions. Wealth Access is the only software designed for Wealth Management Professionals and their clients to collaborate in real-time. Wealth Access has become one of the fastest growing wealth management platforms in America. Last year, investors added over $3 billion in assets and liabilities being reported through the platform. Over $2 billion in assets and liabilities being reported through the platform were added since the release of version 2.0 earlier this year. The company has experienced over 100 percent growth in consumer usage across Wealth Access customers and partners. Although the primary sales channel has been through the growing RIA market, Wealth Access has successfully been able to add regional broker-dealers, one of the top five accounting firms in the Southeast, single-family offices, and banks. The Wealth Access team consists of fourteen employees and continues to grow to support the rapid growth of its pioneering advisor-client portal.
