Recorded Webinar: The Benefits of Advancing Client Data Management Capabilities

21 May 2020

Managing client information is not a new challenge for financial institutions, and it is a challenge that continues to evolve. Bringing together different silos of client information into a single, holistic and hierarchical view to understand client risk and meet KYC and AML obligations is a common issue for financial institutions. Traditionally, client information is stored throughout multiple databases and repositories, yet ‘owned’ by different lines of business or functional areas.

These silos may have different approaches to cleansing and managing the data, and these may be highly manual, making them both inconsistent and expensive. Lacking a holistic view of client data makes risk management difficult because it adds a layer of data management complexity to firms’ operations, and raises issues around information security.

Aside from these issues, a new wave of challenges now need to be considered in the form of legacy (non-cloud) IT platforms, legacy manual processes, evolving risk management requirements, and documentation in unstructured data formats. The question for firms becomes one of investment and the return on that investment. The investment not only encompasses risk management and operating efficiency, but it also may yield benefits in areas of client acquisition and retention, the ability to better engage clients and provide customized advice for them, and for due diligence for ESG-type of investments.

This webinar describes the current state of play for client information, and it looks at approaches to establish hierarchy data management capabilities and discusses use-cases for enjoying operational benefits from improved client data management.
