Financial Planning and RPA: A Match Made in Heaven

By: Banking CIO Outlook | Tuesday, April 28, 2020

Wealth managers are eyeing on RPA to eliminate redundancy in operations and dedicate their valuable time to demanding projects.

FREMONT, CA: The primary objective of financial planning is to get elucidated insights into a firm’s future financial performance. Efficient financial planning includes creating a strong collaboration with firms that are involved in the business. However, it’s not uncommon to see financial institutions getting overwhelmed with manual, repetitive tasks such as transferring files, data entry, copying and pasting within applications, logging into and collecting data from various systems. Alternatively, automation of repetitive tasks would allow financial planners to spend their time more productively. Fortunately, Robotic Process Automation (RPA) can arm the automation need of financial planners. With an affordable investment and without the need for any special hardware, RPA is gaining traction in financial planning. Here are three advantages of using the RPA system in financial planning.

To handle growing data volumes, RPA doesn’t need any additional resources. This enhances RPA’s efficiency and cut down expenses for the firms, as they don’t need to add resources despite the explosive growth in data. The automation of labor-intensive activities limits the requirement for human needs.

• Accuracy

While manual tasks are prone to errors, RPA significantly reduces errors. For example, the errors associated with data re-entry and re-keying are completely elided. Thus, wealth managers can gain better operational efficiencies with the help of RPA.

• Immediate Returns

Unlike significant software incorporations, RPA deployment is affordable and results in almost instant returns. For example, the immediate transfer of repetitive tasks to automated software solution results in freeing up human labor for more demanding tasks.
