Financial Advisor Student Technology

FAStech is a partnership of leading financial software providers who provide FREE access to their software for students of finance and financial planning. Our goal is to provide a free and easily accessible pathway to certification so that students may immediately improve their prospects upon graduation and provide real value to their future employers.

Most educational institutions would like to provide state-of-the-art software for their students, but resources are always limited. That’s why the FAStech partners are committed to helping our industry and the next generation of financial advisors.


Access to eleven leading software programs used by advisors.


All programs are web-based

Once a form has been submitted, an embedded workflow engine and dashboard ensure that appropriate action is taken quickly, allowing organizations to make measurable, targeted improvements in employee productivity.

Auto Form Filling

Most financial planners have their customer data somewhere. And most planners are stuck filling out forms. Laser App Enterprise uses the data you already have to prefill forms for most of the companies you work with.

Locating the forms you need from multiple websites is tedious and time consuming. Laser App keeps all of your forms centrally located and updated, so you don’t have to search your broker-dealer, fund company, insurance, annuity, or custodian websites.

Join over 100,000 other users and complete paperwork the easy way.
