Wealth managers are under pressure from a persistent low interest rate environment, prohibitive costs and complexities around compliance, and fast-evolving client needs. New competitive threats are emerging, ranging from “robo-advisors” to sophisticated offerings being developed by the tech giants.
In this article, Isabella Fonseca and Meghna Mukerjee, make the point that wealth managers seeking ways to prevent client attrition are looking for answers in the wrong places. They argue that beyond evaluating the obvious – transaction history, portfolio performance, risk appetite – there is a lot of data falling through the cracks that is not necessarily being tracked but is equally valuable.
Combing their decades of experience researching and consulting to the wealth management industry, Isabella and Meghna make the case for artificial intelligence-led tools, now coming onto the market, that are making it possible for firms to gather, mine and analyze both traditional structured and untapped unstructured communications data to provide advisors with a rich and realistic assessment of their clients.
