Product Creation is Now in Your Hands!

At Orion, we’re all about providing custom tech solutions to help you grow your business. Now, we’re putting the power of customization in your hands! In this week’s Tech Tip, we’ll show you how to build your own products in the Products and Prices app.


Do you need to create and maintain a custom index or benchmark? Or maybe you want to manually manage an SMA product? How about a custom placeholder asset? Using the Product and Prices app, you can do it all, and we’ll show you how!


In the past, new products were created by a member of the Products and Prices team — potentially resulting in duplicative efforts if members of the Orion team and Orion advisors were both entering product specifications for the same request.

To improve the product creation experience, we’ve added tools to the Product and Prices app and in the Account Composer app that allow you to create products in our system for your own database.


To create products in the Products and Pricing app:

  1. Launch the Products and Pricing app.
  2. Navigate to “Search Local Products.”
  3. In the “Actions” drop-down, click “Add Advisor Product.”
  4. From there, click the “Global” tab.
  5. Now you can fill in the product details.

Helpful Resources

If you’d like to dig deeper into the Products and Pricing app, we have several post-login resources to help you on your quest!
