In today’s rapidly evolving financial landscape, staying ahead of the curve is essential for success. In a recent discussion between Mike Sha, SigFig’s CEO and Craig Iskowitz, CEO of Ezra Group, Mike unveiled the latest version of SigFig Engage, SigFig’s game-changing tool designed to revolutionize financial advisor collaboration. In this blog post, we will delve into the key features of Engage and how it is poised to transform the way financial advisors interact with clients.
Artificial intelligence (AI) plays a unique role in making Engage a game-changer. The platform uses AI to observe and analyze conversations during client-advisor meetings, surfacing relevant content and information that advisors can seamlessly incorporate into their discussions in real-time. From paperwork to account data mapping, these AI-driven features significantly enhance the advisor-client interaction.
- Workflow Simplification: One of the core features of Engage is its ability to simplify complex workflows. Tasks like paperwork, account opening, onboarding, and financial planning can be streamlined and made more efficient. By harnessing the power of AI, Engage assists advisors in automating and optimizing these essential processes, reducing the time and effort required to complete them.
- Automated Meeting Summaries: One of the standout features of Engage is its ability to generate automated meeting summaries. After recording a client meeting in real time, Engage can analyze and transcribe the conversation. It then synthesizes the most critical points and prepares automated meeting notes and summaries for the advisor. This eliminates the need for advisors to manually document complex conversations, saving valuable time.
- Structured Data Extraction: Engage’s AI capabilities extend to structured data extraction. During client meetings, when structured information is shared, such as personal details or financial data, Engage automatically extracts and stores this data in a structured manner. This ensures that valuable client information is readily available for use across different systems within the financial institution.
Mike acknowledges that while some firms embrace cutting-edge technology as early adopters, many others prefer fully baked solutions. Engage offers a low-risk approach to adopting AI in the financial services sector. It focuses on augmenting human capabilities, reducing the potential for errors and ensuring a seamless client experience. As the financial industry continues to evolve, SigFig’s strategic approach positions Engage as a vital tool for advisors looking to enhance their services and streamline operations.
