Enabling the Pershing Integration

Follow

Integration Summary

Our integration with Pershing allows draft accounts in Pershing systems to be opened directly from within Practifi.  Integration initiates the opening of the draft account, which must be reviewed and concluded in the Pershing’s NetX360 Advisor Portal, after formalities with the end-client (review and signing of documents, completion of necessary details required for the account) are concluded.  The integration informs the Practifi Advisor the status of the account opening (as either in Draft, or Opened status).

In this implementation:

  • Contact information is passed into Pershing to open a Draft Account
  • Practifi monitors the status of the Draft Account process and shows its status (In Draft, or Opened) and the Account Type.

Before You Begin

The Practifi customer (advisor firm) must engage with their Pershing Account Executive, informing them that they wish to integrate their Practifi system with Pershing.  In particular, the customer needs to request to authorize the Open and update accounts APIs to be accessed by Practifi on their behalf. The following certificate signing process needs to be completed by Practifi on behalf of each customer:

  • Generate a Certificate Signing Request (CSR) then email to Pershing.

  • Pershing will review the CSR and if approved, Pershing will email back a signed certificate to be installed on the customer’s Practifi system. Separately, a PLINK ID will be issued and emailed by Pershing to Practifi for this customer's advisor firm. Please note that a PLINK ID is issued per firm for the shared API entitlements across that firm.

To complete the configuration, the customer must supply (as issued by Pershing) to Practifi the following details for their firm:

  • correspondentNumber - Firm (introducing broker-dealer or IBD) number
  • officeNumber - Office number (there could be multiple office numbers per firm)

  • rrCode - Advisor (investment professional, IP or registered representative) number

Contact Field Mapping

Pershing Contact Information

The following information is passed in one block to Pershing for the opening of a Draft Account:
