view original post

Hong Kong, China — (SBWIRE) — 10/04/2021 — Technology is changing the way that businesses and economies function and that applies across the board today. Wall Street banks are the latest to make moves towards a more tech-driven future by accelerating efforts to use automation to take the “grunt work” out of the hands of juniors. The wealth management sector has gone through a period of intense competition over the past five years with increases in the cost of doing business, an evolving set of ever-higher customer expectations, greater regulation and, of course, the pandemic to contend with. The need to find new ways to improve efficiency, retain key staff and make an organisation more streamlined and effective continues to be pressing. Automation is something that could make a big difference in an information-intensive industry. There are many different things it could support, from simply removing the “grunt work” from juniors to opening up opportunities for hyper-personalised services, emotional analytics and simplified client onboarding.
