RIA technology platform
Meet rapidly changing client and industry demands with market-leading data, better insights on demand and a truly open platform that provides a seamless digital experience.
The industry is changing. There’s new competition, the ever-growing threat from robo-advisors and the effect fee compression is having on margins. Couple that with digital transformation and communicating with clients virtually and the pressure on advisors continues to increase.
These changes are forcing advisors to rethink their business strategy and client engagement. If advisors are not proactively engaging with their clients and demonstrating their value they stand to lose clients. Those that do adapt will realize a host of benefits, including better client relationships; more successful engagement; and improved customer loyalty, to name but a few. Ultimately these benefits will help foster stronger long-term relationships and business growth for those that are willing.
Why is technology a critical consideration for RIAs?
A Registered Investment Advisor (RIA) has a fundamental obligation to provide advice that acts in the best interest of their high-net worth clients. In order to achieve this in todays digital first environment, advisors need to ensure they have the tools and technology to provide the best advice possible and consistently demonstrate their value.
Technology is constantly evolving to address market dynamics, new challenges, and the needs of end-client investors served by advisors. As the industry evolves and new RIA service models evolve, critical focus areas for advisors remain portfolio management and reporting functionality.
A recent report from the Aite Group estimated that “IT spending on the RIA market for advisor portfolio management and reporting systems is roughly US$956 million in 2020.”
With the vast amount of new data available every second, portfolio tools need to analyse and generate tailored insights directly related to client portfolios in real-time. Portfolio analytics, coupled with the ability to instantly generate customized reports based on market insights and portfolio movements are making advisors more efficient, while improving client engagement and long-term growth.
Wealth advisors are under great pressure to shift away from run-of-the-mill offerings and develop unique experiences for their clients. Advisors that get this transition right will improve the value proposition they offer their clients and at the same time be in a good spot to differentiate from their competition.
