BACK OFFICE & INTEGRATION

"A financial advisory firms back office system is usually seen as the backbone of its business.  However, few firms use a back office system to its full potential or understand how to unlock the 'power of client data' and the value this can bring to a business.  A good back office system and its use can help transform a companies advisory service proposition."

This service module starts by understanding - your people, your culture, your views around client engagement, business planning objectives both administratively and from a longer term development perspective.  In addition, what processes or indirect advisory feature 'add-ons' could make a firm more efficient, compliant and profitable?

 

With more and more product providers potentially looking to target and market to your clients direct, now has never been a better time to strengthen your brand, create greater engagement and steer clients to your centralised white labelled 'client portal' where they can view *live valuations, *plan information on all their assets 24/7 from any device without having to see a product providers brand.

Firms often contact us to help them implement their back office system from scratch or to support them in squeezing as much as they can from the system they currently use, assuming this can deliver on their objectives.
