Morgan Stanley launches a new advisory technology platform.

Morgan Stanley is ramping up its fight to distinguish its wealth management business in one key area: technology. The firm on Monday launched WealthDesk, a new platform for its army of 15,000-plus financial advisors. The idea of the platform is that it will provide financial advisors with one dashboard where they can go for all of their financial planning, advice and implementation tasks.

DriveWealth, LLC, an innovative global digital trading technology providing access to US markets has formed a strategic partnership with Trading Central, a leading investment research provider. The partnership will enable both the companies to leverage common elements of their businesses: seamless, digital, mobile-first transaction capabilities and sophisticated, accessible and actionable financial content.

Acorns

Acorns Grow Inc. is in talks with investors for a new funding round that would give it a valuation north of $700 million, according to people familiar with the matter.

Acorns, which is part of a growing list of startups offering digital wealth management services, is looking to raise more than $100 million in the new round, though that number could change, said one of the people, who all asked not to be identified because the deal is private.
