FIS: A 360-Degree Wealth Management Solution

Top 10 Wealth Management Technology Companies - 2019

The tides have changed in the wealth management sector. As the banking industry moves toward the digital world, financial service providers are on the lookout for meaningful strategies that will help advisors and investors simplify as well as improve their workflows. This could mean restructuring the operating models in client relationship and providing digitalized offerings that are easy to use, personalized and in real-time. To stay ahead in the game, financial institutions should keep up with the changing customer expectations and requirements. Investor anticipation has risen to customized services and on-demand digital engagements. Be it services or solutions; the focus lies on providing quality with an engaging experience.

Digitalization has brought along the convenience and potential for better transparency and collaboration. Advanced algorithms incorporating machine learning, artificial intelligence, and big data can help financial advisors uncover knowledgeable insights and foster relevant discussions on investment goals. Cognitive technology and robotic process automation are pushing the boundaries of driving automation in wealth management, changing the way of handling finances and receiving advice on capital investments. By automating the repetitive, labour-intensive tasks which are highly prone to human errors, technological advancements have paved the way for more profound and relevant investor decisions. Big data will help wealth advisors to gain a better understanding of the customers, their goals, risk tolerances and use the technology to make effective decisions that apply to their client base.

The integration of RPA and AI into financial technologies will see an enormous increase in productivity and efficiency in the banking industry, unlock new potential sources of value, improve accuracy, and lower costs. As AI and machine learning change the face of customer interaction, they will create greater opportunities for organizations to expand their relationships and build trust by offering tailored suggestions to the customers to improve their finances. Financial institutions will be focusing on unlocking and monetizing data to develop digital strategies using the advancements in cognitive technology.

With significant changes come sizeable challenges and responsibilities. As rapid digital innovation opens up larger windows of possibilities, they have also given third-party services the means to gain access to sensitive financial information, which eventually puts a client’s data and security at stake. This has marked a clear need for wealth management providers to devote their resources and attention toward stronger security systems.

The banking industry can expect a more efficient, streamlined and personalized array of solutions and services as wealth management companies are set to make finance management reliable and convenient in the upcoming years. With technological evolution redefining wealth management, organizations must invest in the right provider that caters to their specific requirements. Analyzing the company’s offerings, competencies, and achievements, the editorial team of Banking CIO Outlook has put together a list of wealth management solution providers who are at the forefront of providing cutting-edge technology solutions.
