According to Simon Mulcahy, GM of Financial Services, Salesforce, in a recent statement on the new cloud launch: “Legacy advisor solutions were created decades ago to serve a product-centric world. Today, we live in a new world that is digital- and client-centric, which is turning the wealth management industry on its head.”
“We’re not only building tools that advisors need for this new world, but we’re also joining forces with best-in-class partners to deliver a next-generation solution that takes advantage of modern, cloud technology. This will help advisors transform the way they serve clients,” he added.
“Today’s investors don’t wait for quarterly meetings to discuss their finances with advisors; they expect to be able to engage them for advice when and how they want. That’s why we are thrilled to partner with Salesforce in developing the Financial Services Cloud. This initiative brings the latest digital technologies to the wealth management industry to help transform the way advisers connect with their clients,” reiterated Richard Lumb, Group Chief Executive, Financial Services at Accenture, in an accompanying statement.
