What’s the most important way for a bank to differentiate its wealth management division today?
Once upon a time, the answer might have been its number of investment strategies or more competitive fees. Those are still important factors for a consumer when choosing a financial professional, but increasingly the answer is more focused.
Banks have to provide an excellent client experience. Across industries, those who focus on curating the client experience can drive revenue as much as 8% higher than other competing companies who don’t.
Some might not because they may feel that “client experience” is too broad or abstract for them to focus on. For our purposes, the client experience is every way in which a client interacts with their financial professional.
For most clients today, that includes a heavy emphasis on digital interactions.
INTRUST Bank has figured out the answer to providing a terrific digital experience for their clients—and it revolves around an integrated client portal ecosystem.
How INTRUST Bank Creates an Integrated Client Experience
The process begins with Wealth Access as the anchor, providing a centralized client portal and data aggregation capabilities.
That data aggregation influences the planning work that INTRUST creates for clients through MoneyGuidePro, for comprehensive life planning, and Genivity, for longevity planning.
INTRUST also curates its client experience by centralizing how clients access their information. Instead of providing multiple website logins, clients access everything they need in their Wealth Access portal—including statements showing how much INTRUST’s Smartleaf rebalancing system has saved them in taxes.
