This event will be a chance for wealth managers to hear firsthand a presentation of the findings of research conducted during September and October 2018 into the crucial area of performance reporting.

The following issues amongst others will be addressed:

Why performance reporting is such a powerful engagement opportunity that many wealth managers are missing. It will explain why reporting really is the “alpha communication” throughout relationships – and the first proof-point new clients see – but one which is all too often not particularly interesting, easy for clients to understand or helpful in optimising their management of their wealth.

What wealth managers should specifically be offering clients in their performance reporting, and how clients’ engagement with their wealth – and provider – can be improved.

Themes will include:

Delivering reporting information via the format and channel of clients’ choice.
Reporting being more timely (and real-time when desired).
The need for interactive content like videos/ audio/links to thought-leadership. Customisability in line with investors’ interests and knowledge, with advisors being able to implement this tailoring rather than IT teams

The need to offer consolidated reporting, so that investors – and advisors – can act upon a holistic overview of clients’ wealth. We will contrast rising demand for consolidated reporting (particularly in the context of open banking) with the cost and implementation challenges currently putting firms off.

Turning to the Future: Where Clients’ Reporting Demands are Heading will look ahead to where clients’ – and regulators’ demands – are trending with reporting, and how wealth managers can ready themselves to keep pace with these changes.
