Salentica Elements and Envestnet|Tamarac: Working Together

 

Envestnet|Tamarac, a division of Envestnet, Inc., is a leading provider of integrated, web-based portfolio rebalancing, performance reporting, and customer relationship management software for independent advisors and wealth managers. Envestnet|Tamarac enables investment advisors to run their businesses with greater efficiency, scale, and profitability through our custodian agnostic technology platform and outsourced portfolio management services.


Data Setup Information

How Envestnet|Tamarac Records Translate into Elements

Tamarac Accounts = Elements Financial Accounts

Tamarac Portfolios = Elements Portfolios

 

There is no household object at Tamarac for this integration. Household Aggregation will still process but the Household record and lookups from the corresponding financial accounts need to be in place. 

 

Step 1: Create a New Tamarac User

Follow these steps to set up a Tamarac user for the Salentica Elements Integration:

Contact Account Management at [email protected] to create a new Tamarac Reporting user for your firm with the following information:

  • First Name: Salentica
  • Last Name: Elements
  • Username: EnterpriseName_SalenticaElements

It's recommended this user:

  • Have admin-level privileges at Tamarac
  • Enabled for APIs permissions at Tamarac
  • "Bulk report API usage" needs to be enabled at the firm level 

 

Sign in to the new user and set a permanent password. This must be done within 72 hours of when the user is created. The username and password must be provided to Salentica, including answers to any Dual-Factor Authentication questions, if applicable. Note: If you change the username or password for the integration user, you must update the associated credentials in Skyline/Data Broker. At this time, MultiFactor Authentication (MFA) is not supported for the integration user. 

 

Note: If your firm has IP restrictions set up for Tamarac Reporting, provide Salentica a list of IP addresses for the authorized address list. There is no cost for adding addresses to the authorized for Tamarac reporting or Trading. 

 

Step 2: Create an Account Information Bulk Report

While logged in under the Salentica Tamarac user, create an Account Information bulk report called AccountInfoAV. To create the bulk report, follow these steps:

  • Click Create Report

  • In Name, type AccountInfoAV
  • In Report Type, select Account Information
  • From the Choose Columns tab, add the following columns in this order:
    • Account Name
    • Account Number
    • Account Current Value
    • Account Type
    • Custodian
    • Closed Date
  • Click Save

 

Step 3: Create an Account Holdings Bulk Report

Create an Account Holdings bulk report named AccountholdingsAV. To create the bulk report, follow these steps:

  • Under Reports, click Bulk Reports
  • Click Create Report
  • In Name, type AccountHoldingsAV
  • In Report Type, select Account Holdings
  • From the Choose Columns tab, add the following columns in this order:
    • Account Number
    • As of Date
    • Cost Basis
    • Holdings Current Value
    • Current Yield
    • Quantity
    • Current Price
    • CUSIP
    • Security Description
    • Security Type
    • Symbol
    • Asset Class
    • Sector
  • Click Save

 

Custodian Account Number and Portfolio Management System (PMS) Account Number are different data points within the Data Broker and should be considered as such. The Custodian Account number is mapped for account numbers coming through the custodial integration and the PMS account number is the account number received through the integration with the Portfolio Management System. Many times the numbers can and will be the same but each will be treated differently by the Data Broker based on the integration type. 


Data Exclusion

Data Broker uses the following parameters when Salentica queries the bulk report template:

  • Exclude any records where EntityType="Group"
  • Exclude any record where CloseDate has a value and CloseDate is older than 15 days

If your firm wishes to exclude additional accounts that do not fall into either of the above categories, it is recommended that the accounts be removed from the Tamarac user's access.


Accessing Envestnet|Tamarac from Within the CRM

You don't have to leave Elements to see Envestnet|Tamarac information. Don't lose your place in Elements or look for the correct website to log into, just push a button! Log into Envestnet|Tamarac, in context, from within Elements. When the component is added to the page layout, a login prompt will authenticate directly to Envestnet|Tamarac. The portfolio-level login button will take you to the portfolio in Rebalancer.  

Note: Your data stays secure! Credentials are user-specific. Security permissions are inherited from Envestnet|Tamarac; if the user is not permissioned to view the account or portfolio in Envestnet|Tamarac, they will not be able to access the records through the login button. 

 

The contextual hyperlink buttons requires the below to be mapped in the Entity settings of Data Broker.
