Banking CIO Outlook | Monday, June 27, 2022

Fremont, CA: While consumer needs vary in the wealth management industry, digital technology adoption has been gradual. A new generation of customers is coming into the market, and new technologies influence their requirements. In addition, in a more unpredictable and uncertain climate produced by the Covid-19 outbreak, wealth managers must deliver speedier and more convenient services with a digital experience.

Let's have a look at the key technology trends reshaping the wealth management industry.

Advanced analytics, artificial intelligence (AI), and machine learning (ML)in wealth management

Wealth managers may use advanced analytics to attain personal data and deliver a more personalized service to their clients. Advanced analytics and AI and ML (Machine Learning) can turn this data into useful information for clients. Interactive dashboards in AI-enabled wealth management tools deliver this information.

Intelligent wealth management automation

Avoiding employee resistance to automation technology: Automation technology can occasionally endanger employees' employment, leading to resistance to adoption. To avoid hesitancy, asset management organizations should include staff in the implementation process and give them proper training.

Improved wealth management mergers and acquisitions (M & M&A): In the asset and wealth management industry, mergers and acquisitions are rising. The time-consuming process of moving investor data during M&As may get greatly sped up with RPA (Robotics process automation).

Furthermore, data transfer to the new system may get automated during the onboarding of new clients. If there's any inconsistency in the data, RPA can detect it and inform an employee for additional inspections.

Wealth management via cloud computing

More scalability and flexibility: Cloud applications can scale up and down depending on the quantity of the asset data and the number of customers being handled.

Cost savings: Wealth management organizations may pick the most appropriate SaaS (Software-as-a-Service) based on their company needs, thanks to the customized subscription choices provided by cloud apps. Cloud storage systems may also save businesses money on data storage hardware purchases.

Better security: Cloud-based storage technologies give wealth managers more protection to protect their private financial data from intrusions.

Better compliance: Cloud accounting software can help wealth managers keep track of records for auditing purposes.
