WINNING CLIENTS IN THE ERA OF HYBRID ADVICE
As a provider of technology solutions to the global financial industry, FactSet knows the pressure financial advisors are under when it comes to evolving with "the digital transformation". Despite the human element of the wealth management relationship being paramount in growing clients' wealth, the demand from investors for an online connection is clear. Understanding the opportunities that digital technology presents will mean the difference between success or failure, as wealth firms enter into what we have termed the "era of hybrid advice".
To get a better understanding of the changes that digital technology is affecting in the advisor-client relationship and firm productivity, FactSet embarked on a new industry research project. For the third consecutive year, FactSet together with Scorpio Partnership, has delved into the high net worth investor (HNWI) community to learn their vision for the wealth management industry, and help our own clients navigate some of their biggest challenges. This year, our goal was to establish the digital preferences of wealthy investors when it comes to growing their assets.
We are therefore, excited to release our three-part series, Digital Wealth Management: Winning Clients in the Hybrid Advice Era, where we outline over a dozen tactics that can help wealth managers implement and maintain a digital strategy that delivers value and engages HNWIs, from the mass affluent to ultra-high net worth individuals (UHNWIs).
To help key decision makers in this digitilization process enhance their own strategy, we went further this year by adopting a multi-pronged approach to shed light on this important topic from different angles. We are excited to include the learnings of influential and successful disruptors from across industries, and incorporate advice from those professionals on the advisory side of the relationship, to further illuminate opportunities that exist to day.
INTRODUCING OUR THREE PART SERIES
Each part of the series focuses on a key theme we have identified as influencing the decisions of wealth firms today around digital technology: optimization, visualization and personalization. Our findings suggest that optimized technology, improved data visualization, and highly personalized content can empower firms to supply clients across the wealth scale with the tools and insights needed for a better digital experience, while boosting both firm and advisor efficiency.
