How to improve profitability and efficiency?
Improving profitability and efficiency: banks are constantly looking for optimizing their ROI. A digital journey is often seen as a way to achieve this. Also, improving advisory tooling helps in achieving this goal. Ortec Finance tooling can help bring automated advice to it’s clients. Automated advice will make both digital customer journeys more efficient through higher trust levels and higher conversion rates. In an advisory context, automated advice empowers advisors to focus on the client and not on the technical aspects of an advice. Therefore, risk of mistakes reduces, quality of advice improves and number of clients to be handled can go up.
I want a solution for Goal-based Financial Planning
A financial planning tool that additionally offers you an integrated cash flow planning tool. The main objective of cash flow planning in OPAL is to identify possible budget shortfalls or surpluses. This provides information on the effect on the development of capital and the realization of financial goals.
All solutions can be offered separately or integrated into one platform.
How to keep up with regulations and compliance?
All financial entities that give advice face severe regulatory and compliance pressure. This takes vast amounts of resources, both in time and money. The OPAL tooling of Ortec Finance deals with several aspects of for example MiFID: suitability, appropriateness and cost transparency. By engaging Ortec Finance early in regulatory projects, these can be combined with creating digital journeys and therefore using resources more efficiently.
