The digital era is changing client’s relationship in the wealth management industry
A survey conducted over the American market during 2014’s first quarter demonstrated that customer’s dissatisfaction with the mobile services was the first cause of breach of contract between a client and its bank. Indeed, over 60% of surveyed persons left their previous bank because of this reason. This figure underlines itself the importance of new technologies in our daily lives.
Wealth management players are also affected by these new trends. Besides the increasing number of new regulations, wealth managers also have to deal with the technological revolution ongoing. In fact, we estimate that each person in the world will possess an average of 3.47 devices directly connected to the internet in 2015. Even more shocking, this number should double in 5 years to reach 6.58 devices per person in 2020. Far from being just a temporary transition, the demand for online services, available via smartphones or other devices, anywhere and 24/7, is today a real concern that can’t be ignored.
A direct consequence of this new digital wave was to change and transform customer’s habits and needs. Clients are asking for more in order to reach a higher level of control on their portfolios.
Concretely, what does it mean for wealth managers?
Today, and as mentioned above, customers are willing to follow with the highest accuracy possible their investments, via all the devices they possess. They are then looking for asset managers who will be capable of offering such a high value service. More and more, investors are leaving one provider for another one because the services offered where not meeting the customer’s hope and expectations.
Therefore, being able to propose these kinds of services to its customers is becoming a strong and powerful competitive advantage. To do so, acquiring and integrating tools and software is a mandatory step, and almost mandatory to survive.
History and serious surveys showed us that technological delays can seriously and definitely damage the business of any company that did not react fast enough facing a changing environment.
