Having the right information is key to making good decisions – but how do you deliver information to clients in a way that is concise, relevant and usable?
How do you craft a reporting experience for clients that goes beyond the static quarterly report and provides them with data that is up-to-the-minute and available across different channels?
How do you bring different stakeholders and the next generation into the reporting process?
With clients able to access information about any topic immediately, wherever they are, the pressure on wealth managers to provide accurate data in a way that supports the client’s decision-making process is growing. Meeting that challenge requires thinking about reporting through the client’s lens: when do they want information, how and why?
This Breakfast Briefing event will see the launch of a new research report, Client Reporting: or is it Client Communications, in which experts from the wealth management and fintech industries reveal the latest thinking on reporting and the client experience.
