3.15 - 3.45 pm Technology’s role in addressing the value proposition dilemma
Technology is playing an increasing role in delivering value from Licensee to Adviser and subsequently Adviser to investor. With licensees having to review and consider their role in providing business solutions to advisers, it is important to understand how the technology available to them can assist. This is particularly pertinent in the Managed Account sector, as advisers look to increase their client engagement models and interact more frequently and seamlessly with their clients. Martin Morris Head of Distribution and Adam Pointon for Praemium will provide insights into how Managed Account technology can be utilised to address this value proposition dilemma.
