- The Insights Engine, part of the Envestnet Wealth Data Platform, now offers more than 100 different types of data-driven insights for advisors curated daily, including the new Money In Motion AI-reliant insight that establishes patterns in account activity and cash flows -- such as regular deposits or withdrawals – and immediately calls out any significant deviations for advisors.
