GFH & Co. Ltd (Hottinger) are one of the first to sign up to the platform. Tim Sharp, Executive Director comments, “Hottinger is delighted to be moving onto WDX ONE at a time when our firm is expanding and requires a solid, scalable platform as a result of organic growth combined with ever increasing regulatory requirements. We believe it is essential for leading boutique managers to be at the vanguard of technological advancements. We have been impressed with the functionality and have found the platform closely mirrors our own needs.”
Demand for CRM technology and digital transformation has become the fastest growth area in the UK financial services sector in the last two years as the investment industry gets to grip with tightening conduct regulations, demand for optimal client operations and digital service provision.
Cloud-based solutions are a growing trend, with EY reporting at the Compeer Wealth Tech conference 2015 that 85% of wealth and investment management firms either use or are planning to use cloud-based services; adding that those that do not see managed services/cloud models as the future are increasingly in the minority.
PWC’s Wealth Management Trend 2016 report also stated by 2020 the millennials will control over half of all investable assets and wealth managers are counting on new online and mobile offerings to attract new clients.
CEO of Wealth Dynamix Gary Linieres, comments; “The launch of WDX ONE has been timed to coincide with the FCA’s evolving guidance on the use of cloud solutions for client data, and the burgeoning demand from wealth managers to deploy sophisticated client relationship management solutions at an effective price point. This is a natural progression for WDX based on the insights and expertise we’ve gained from working with some of the UK’s leading institutions and deploying several thousand users of WDX. We are now able to offer wealth and investment managers of all sizes a standard set of tools to deal with regulatory compliance, improve operational efficiency and a comprehensive suite of advanced CRM tools that address the challenges of the digital age”.
He continues, “Firms are fighting to grow their AUM whilst dealing with increasing regulatory burdens and agile, tech savvy new competition. WDX ONE provides both regulatory compliance and opportunity for service improvement and digital expansion for ambitious investment firms looking to redefine their standards of business and take solid steps towards future growth.”
