Prudential Investments, the retail investment arm of Newark, N.J.-based Prudential Financial, is launching a new high-net-worth wrap product that allows financial advisers to build, manage and customize portfolios of funds and individually managed accounts.

The program allows advisors to monitor each clients portfolio and provide advice based about the portfolios investments based on analysis and research provided by Prudential. By using a single platform, advisors are given a consistent source of data and information, said Keitha Kinne, Prudentials director of investment management services.
The product also helps advisors build balanced portfolios by offering manager combinations such as growth and value as well as large cap and small cap.
