“This year’s Impact Innovation Awards clearly demonstrate that wealth management firms globally have made tremendous progress in all areas of digital client engagement over the last 18 months,” says Aite Group research director Alois Pirker. “Excelling digitally has allowed leading firms to not only stay connected with their clients in times of social distancing but also transform their business models, expand client service offerings, and reach new client segments.” he adds.

  • Level of innovation and competitive advantage
  • Market needs assessment
  • Impact on customer experience and on customer operational efficiency
