How is Envestnet Doing?

Envestnet’s business model ensures solid asset-based and subscription-based recurring-revenue generation capacity. The company provides asset-based and subscription-based services on a business-to-business-to-consumer basis to financial services clients. These clients offer solutions based on Envestnet’s platform to their end users. On a business-to-business basis, the company delivers an open platform to customers and third-party developers through an open API framework. Notably, asset-based recurring revenues of $184 million increased 34% and subscription-based recurring revenues of $113.6 million were up 5% in the third quarter of 2021.

The company’s technology-enabled services are expected to register handsome growth as trends such as increasing demand for personalized wealth management services and cost-effective guided advice are creating significant market opportunities.

Some Risks

Envestnet's cash and cash equivalent balance of $394 million at the end of the third quarter was well below the long-term debt level of $848 million. This underscores that the company doesn’t have enough cash to meet this debt burden.
