FundQuest, a wealth management solutions provider owned by BNP Paribas, will support GMS Group's financial advisers with a suite of technology-based productivity tools, investment research and monitoring services.

The GMS Group's new platform is designed to offer its high-net-worth clients a variety of managed account solutions, including mutual fund models, universal life products, Unified Managed Accounts with FundQuest overlay management, Separately Managed Equity Account models and ActivePassive Portfolios, including exchange-traded funds.
