Wealth management is facing significant disruption on two fronts – customer experience and digital transformation. To effectively succeed within these turbulent times, understanding client demographics and expectations is essential. Firms can leverage deep customer insights to grasp their clients’ changing ethos and develop solutions accordingly. Improved customer satisfaction often drives competitive advantage. As firms prioritize superior customer experience, they are adopting intelligent solutions such as analysis of consumer sentiments to deliver hyper-personalized services. Firms are also leveraging artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) techniques to improve client-advisor relationships. To innovate, especially within legacy infrastructures, organizations must embrace open APIs to scale technology capability with support from WealthTech newcomers and third-party vendors that offer generic and customizable API-based platforms. Regulations such as the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and know your customer (KYC) mandates are pushing firms to ramp up cybersecurity and automate cumbersome client onboarding processes, in a data-driven compliance scenario.
