Client onboarding for asset management firms refers to the strategy, system and processes through which clients are introduced to the firm and its products, whilst at the same time complying to all existing relevant financial regulation.
Client onboarding is one of the most critical functions for Asset Management firms as it directly impacts client experience, servicing and relationships — all of which, in turn, impact profits.
Fund managers need to on-board new clients in accordance to regional regulations and KYC norms. Faster on-boarding enables these companies to initiate trading with their clients sooner and mitigate the risk.
Our Global Client Onboarding and Data Management conferences continue to be the only global events focusing on client onboarding opportunities and challenges specifically in the Capital Markets sector. We’re offering a two-day platform for a mix of technology, operations/business and compliance professionals and the key decision makers to gather and explore strategies on end-to-end client onboarding process improvements specifically for Asset Management firms.
