Delivering financial planning and advice requires an understanding of the client’s complete financial picture. In other words, this client-centric activity demands a panoramic view of the client’s data. Wealth management firms have traditionally struggled to consolidate data from in-house product silos and external sources. But the industry’s shift toward goal-based wealth management and financial wellness is putting renewed emphasis on the topic of high-quality, consolidated data. This panel will discuss:

  • Strategies employed by leading firms to address the data challenge
  • The shift of account aggregation from a consumer to an advisor tool
  • The changing role of client reporting in the new world of goalbased wealth management and financial wellness
