Technology tools to reach new markets and client segments

Technologies that enable the democratization of wealth management continue to emerge across the industry.  Wealth-as-a-Service platforms, digital tools and mobile applications are examples of technologies used to deliver financial solutions to underinvested communities and new markets such as gig workers.  This is a growing area of interest to wealth management firms looking for new sources of revenue.


Wealth management firms are looking to personalize the client journey.  This category includes innovative technologies that are used to deliver more meaningful advisor/client engagement, communications, and portfolio solutions.  

Streamlining Advisor Workflows

Digitizing and streamlining operations across the advisor workflow continues to be an area of focus for financial institutions.  Innovative point solutions, front, middle and back-office technologies that improve advisor efficiency and productivity are essential to the creation of best-in-class platforms.

Financial Wellness

This theme includes technologies that deliver more holistic solutions to clients. Retail clients are demanding that wealth managers seamlessly integrate non-traditional products and services, such as alternative investments, insurance, and lending into comprehensive solutions.  Technologies and tools that enable these solutions are increasingly leveraged by financial institutions.

Data and Analytics

Data is a differentiator for wealth managers.  This theme recognizes the use of data in driving competitive advantage.  Some examples include using data management tools and technologies to deliver:

  • Predictive analytics
  • Curated content 
  • More meaningful advisor engagement
  • ESG and thematic financial solutions
  • Data management capabilities that enable the flow of information across systems

Essential and Emerging Technologies

This category looks at new technologies that are just beginning to emerge within wealth management.  The Metaverse is a good example of a technology that financial institutions are exploring.
