The coronavirus pandemic forever changed the technology and financial industries, said Emily Wilcox, chief operating officer at Practifi, a business management platform for financial advisory firms, offering opportunities for both to seek out different ways of doing business and reaching new customers.
Financial advisors looking for software to add to their technology stack would do well to seek out providers who engender a culture that supports client success.
Until recently, financial advisors were severely limited in the value they could extract from their software, but new, more flexible technology has the potential to simultaneously catalyze growth, lower operating costs and improve the client experience.
Most advisory firms want to scale, but not all of them can. One of the biggest obstacles to scaling is not having the right technology in place, said Adrian Johnstone, Chief Commercial Officer at Practifi, a business management platform for financial services firms.
Financial firms now have a new option to operate in a manner that is compliant by design. Practifi, a business management platform for financial advisory firms, has launched a new compliance application to create a unique, custom-built compliance dashboard within a business’s operations.
Offices may be filled with maskless faces by the end of this summer, but that doesn’t mean that advisors’ compliance concerns are easing. In fact, compliance remains a hot topic, said Tom Westhoff, Vice President of Global Sales at Practifi.
Practifi, a business management platform for the financial services industry, was planning to change how it interacted with email and calendar scheduling programs but wasn’t sure how to proceed. A client advisor board offered just the insights the firm needed.
Not only is providing financial advice evolving into a profession as indispensible and rigorous as medicine and law, but it’s also maturing into one that requires a modern approach to technology, said Adrian Johnstone, chief commercial officer at Practifi, a business management platform for financial services firms. Both medicine and law have embraced a roles-based approach to building technology stacks.
Over the past two decades as clients and the financial industry itself shifted online, advisors embraced education and learning as a powerful tool capable of attracting new prospects, transforming existing prospects to clients and keeping current clients engaged
Technology that can both scale up a practice and zoom-in to offer client experience enhancements is at a premium, said, Tom Westhoff, vice president of Global Sales at Practifi, a business management platform for financial services firms, because clients are demanding better experiences with their advisors.
