London – 6 March 2014

How mobile are your advisors? How engaged are your clients?

The new value-added advisory processes driving client experience, engagement, efficiency and compliance

At this thought leadership event we will discuss the latest multi-device, multi-channel business models in the advisory process which allow wealth managers to:

  • combine workflow, CRM, wealth advice and fact finds to create a more efficient and effective client engagement and onboarding experience;
  • monitor clients circumstances and investments to ensure their portfolios remain suitable and in line with their agreed mandate;
  • equip and schedule advisors to carry out regular reviews, based on the last meeting’s notes, fact find and proposal.

Learn how you can take ownership of your clients and deliver a superior client experience, while at the same time driving efficiency and compliance, systematically and consistently, in an increasingly regulated world.
