Challenge Categories
Integrated solution for Independent Financial Advisors
IFAs require more coordination (one point of contact) and ease of use (straight-through-processing on a platform) but they do not want to lose access to the company`s product and capability specialists across the company.

Should not be just a `platform`/ administrative service but rather provide seamless / integrated engagement with the company`s specialist capabilities.

The solution should:

  • Create a key differentiator in the form of our ability to offer a seamless, integrated platform with access to both our local and international product sets
  • Aggregate different product areas into a single technological solution
  • Provide a view of all our products, services and fees in ONE PLACE
  • Corporate level
  • Adviser level (FSP)
  • End client level
  • Integrate into the IFAs existing CRM systems
  • Offer a proposal tool
 This Challenge is closed for entry
Superior reporting capabilities for IFAs
A key pressure for many IFAs is the administrative burden that comes with consolidating reports from the various suppliers and platforms for their clients.

The solution should:

  • Create the ability for the IFA to consolidate reporting, enable performance reporting and streamline back office functions
  • Generate reporting and aggregation of client information to enable a ‘look through’ to the end client (from the company, and not the IFA’s, point of view)
 This Challenge is closed for entry
Streamlining compliance functions
Providing compliance and administrative solutions for IFAs would resolve a big pain point for them and immediately increase business for the company.

The solution should:

  • Improve practice management pertaining to the Financial Services regulatory authority licencing services, risk management services and training on compliance related issues
  • Assist with records of advice i.e. compliance related to applicable financial advisor regulations
  • Provide compliance monitoring reports
 This Challenge is closed for entry
KYC and On-boarding solutions
IFAs are having to KYC and on-board the same client multiple times with each business unit, and the IFA itself is having to be KYC’ed and on-boarded multiple times each time a new relationship begins with a business unit

The solution should:

  • Reduce the duplication and inefficiencies in terms of on-boarding and user experience
  • Create the ability for IFAs to perform KYC and on-board end clients once across the company
  • Create the ability for the company to seamlessly KYC and on-board the IFA client rather than doing this multiple times with each business unit
  • Provide storage of end client documents / KYC documents
  • Provide online KYC awareness training
 This Challenge is closed for entry
Differentiated tools for IFAs
The company is already a trusted brand in the IFA market. We offer deep specialisation, not just superficial knowledge.

The challenge is to identify capabilities that can be provided that is over and above this to maximise our partnership with IFAs and deliver the best value to them

The solution could be :

  • Any adviser specific tools and solutions to assist in investment advice, including the use of model portfolios
