Key Takeaways from Schwab IMPACT 2022 - FutureVault

5 Key Takeaways from Schwab IMPACT® 2022

Our conference participant review was originally provided for the Institute for Innovation Development.

At the beginning of November, our team exhibited at Schwab Advisor Services’ annual IMPACT conference in Denver, CO.

This year’s conference returned to an in-person format for the first time in two years due to COVID and hosted 5,000 live attendees at the Colorado Conference Center, with somewhere around 2,500 of those attendees being wealth advisors and professionals.  

This year’s IMPACT was also the first time in conference history to bring together advisors on the Schwab and TD Ameritrade custodial platforms under the same roof since TD Ameritrade was acquired by Schwab back in 2019.

Widespread excitement and contagious energy filled the conference center over the course of the three days and not once did this level of energy dissipate or fizzle out.

The energy levels were high, the people were amazing, the keynotes and presentations were thought-provoking and rich with insight, the events and socials were buzzing, and most importantly, there was optimism and encouragement for a bright future ahead. 

Below are our top 5, from many, key takeaways from this year’s conference that will impact, no pun intended, and influence the course for 2023 and beyond.

1. The Schwab and TD Ameritrade Integration will be complete by Labor Day 2023

Charles Schwab’s acquisition of TD Ameritrade has been the single largest story and development in the RIA custodial space in the last few years. The deal, which was announced in late 2019 and officially closed in the Fall of 2020, brings together two multi-trillion-dollar RIA custodians and their ecosystems, creating a massive integration process to transition advisors and clients from the TD platform to Schwab.

This multi-trillion-dollar integration of the two platforms makes Schwab the largest RIA custodian, by a landslide. To put it into perspective, the two platforms are responsible for more than half of all assets managed by Registered Investment Advisors.

And now, the complete integration of the Schwab and TD Ameritrade platforms and ecosystems has a final date — Labor Day 2023. This means that the transition for advisors currently on TD Ameritrade Institutional over to Schwab Advisor Services will likely take place over the 2023 Labor Day weekend.

An applauded moment during the IMPACT opening remarks was when Schwab’s Head of Advisor Services, Bernie Clark, confirmed with the audience (advisors) that Schwab does not intend to implement a custodial fee that some other RIA custodial competitors have been considering amidst market headwinds.

While there is certainly a lot that can happen from now until the Labor Day 2023 weekend, the industry will certainly be paying close attention to the progression and eventual completion of the Schwab and TD Ameritrade integration.

2. Personalization continues to be a critical theme for Advisors

The significance of the topic, or rather the theme, of Personalization, continues to be echoed across the country and throughout conference halls everywhere.

During the opening ceremony and remarks, Bernie Clark and Walt Bettinger signaled just how significant personalization is and how this “theme” is central to everything in modern-day wealth management. Bettinger even called and compared personalization to that of a freight train for Advisors.

Meaning this shift in consumer behavior and new client expectations are coming at Advisors faster than many may realize and/or acknowledge. This is very telling of where the industry needs to go and where it is very evidently headed.

The Digital Client Experience, and Personalization as an extension, need to be prioritized across every single level of the organization. Plain and simple.

This is no longer an Advisor-only duty and obligation, but rather an organization-wide strategic narrative that simply must be baked into the DNA of modern financial services and wealth management firms.

Julie Littlechild and her team at Absolute Engagement are huge advocates of personalization and helping Advisors take their digital client experience to the next level. At this year’s IMPACT, Julie shared some of her recent thinking around mindset, engagement, and the future of client experiences during her session which was called How Client Mindset is Changing the Client Experience. When it comes to this topic, Julie and her team are undoubtedly at the top of the expert list — if you are not following Julie, you need to be.

Keeping with the theme of personalization, Chris Volpe, Managing Director at Zephyr shared his thoughts at IMPACT regarding how technology is enabling better client relationships by affording firms and advisors the ability to personalize communications at scale, in a way that really matters for clients.

3. Frictionless client onboarding and account opening workflow is a major area of focus

Creating the ultimate onboarding experience, one that is frictionless, easy, and enjoyable for clients, will continue to drive strategic narratives and influence spending in 2023.

From better back- and front-office enrichment and automation to more tightly integrated processes with e-signature capabilities, firms are looking to shape their onboarding process to button up compliance and security concerns, improve professional productivity by saving valuable time, and most importantly, deliver the best possible client experience.

This was evident in the hundreds of conversations our team had with advisors and back-office teams. One of the (many) areas that really stood out during these conversations was FutureVault’s e-signature automation and capabilities to automatically provision and create new client Vault accounts, while simultaneously automatically delivering all e-signed onboarding documents directly into specific folder locations in one or many Vaults instantaneously. For the back office and compliance teams, this gives confidence in a secure delivery method of critical documents while meeting document retention requirements. For the front office and advisors, it means less time is spent manually sorting, filing, and sending documents to clients. And for the client, it means that any-and-all signed documents by the client are available and accessible to them in their personal digital vault.

Remember, the initial onboarding experience and account opening process can often pave the way for a long, healthy relationship; the opposite can also be true.

4. Technology enables business outcomes and helps you deliver and improve your value proposition

Over the last several years, we have witnessed the role technology has played and how it has evolved to be the cornerstone of wealth management.

What once used to be a nice-to-have has now evolved into a must-have to thrive and survive in today’s landscape.

Your technology stack isn’t just pieces of technology “glued” together in separate areas to achieve siloed outcomes. It has become more strategic than that and must be deployed to complement your strategic narrative and elevate the value proposition in all areas.

Shirl Penney, CEO of Dynasty Financial Partners delivered a great presentation full of takeaway insights on how (and why) firms absolutely must look to tech-enable their business. Shirl’s presentation really resonated with our team and our philosophies, but what caught my attention on one of his slides was the question he posed at the bottom, “Can you double your number of clients without doubling your headcount?”.

In the same presentation, Shirl breaks down four components of WealthTech:

  1. Business
  2. Investments
  3. Consumer
  4. Data Analytics. 

This thought-provoking question and the four components above, imply just how critical technology has become and will continue to become to deliver business outcomes, improve upon strategic decision-making and be central to the value proposition of your firm in 2023 and beyond.

5. 360 Integration is critical for WealthTech providers 

Wealth management firms and advisors are feeling pressure when it comes to making technology decisions, and rightfully so. It is not only critical but rather necessary, that integration and Open APIs exist for modern WealthTech firms.

The lack of connectivity and seamless integration is a very prominent challenge across the industry. As firms venture down the path of siloed technology implementations, we continue to see the rise of integration challenges, amongst other significant challenges which include resource allocation, financial risks, loss of productivity, and a poor client experience. 

But what’s more of a challenge than the lack of integration between technology providers is the lack of connectivity and integration into operational processes and client workflow.

From back and middle office tools and technology to advisor-facing and client-facing portals, the winning recipe is creating an ecosystem of best-of-breed technologies that create, in the words of AppCrown’s Franklin Tsung, a “Digital Advisor 360 Platform.

Franklin also predicts that many advisors will soon be looking at their technology stacks as tech providers consolidate. During an interview at IMPACT, he shares why many independent advisors will be looking at multi-custodial, independent technology that can help them scale in the year ahead, such as online communities, document vaults, portals, and marketing integration that connect seamlessly with CRM systems.

Bonus Takeaway: SEC compliance continues to shake up the industry

SEC Compliance handling is a top-of-mind priority that has firms and advisors pay close attention to what’s unfolding, especially as the SEC continues to amend existing rules and propose new ones, causing chaos, panic, stress, and a lot of head-scratching.

The reality is that the majority of firms are left scrambling to find a solution and that’s if they even know where to begin looking in the first place. Below are three compliance requirements and rulings from the SEC related to managing critical documents and record-keeping that continue to receive a lot of attention:

1) SEC document retention compliance, Rule 17a-4, and the requirement of having a Write-Once-Ready-Many (WORM) format. 

2) Enhanced disclosure and archiving of all marketing/advertising communications. The deadline for this new ruling was on Nov 4th, 2022, however, the majority of firms have likely pushed this off into the new year for many reasons (not knowing where to start, waiting to see what unfolds first, and downplaying its significance are the three most common reasons).

3) 3rd Party Vendor Management Due Diligence (the SEC has proposed new oversight requirements for certain client and third-party outsources including record-keeping related to due diligence and third-party service monitoring.

FutureVault Named 5-Star WealthTech Provider by Wealth Professional Canada Magazine

FutureVault Named 5-Star WealthTech Provider by Wealth Professional Canada

The 5-Star WealthTech Report published by Wealth Professional Canada Magazine recognizes technology pioneers and the top solutions in the wealth management industry.

Toronto, Ontario, September 26, 2022  — FutureVault, a pioneer of Personal Life Management Vaults™ and market-leading secure document exchange solutions was recognized earlier this morning as a 5-Star WealthTech Provider by Wealth Professional Canada.

Wealth Professional’s 5-Star WealthTech Providers report recognizes technology pioneers in the wealth management industry who are shaping innovation and creating unique technology that addresses fundamental industry-wide challenges. The report published by Wealth Professional Canada highlights the top technology firms in the industry that have successfully demonstrated their capabilities in taking technology to the next level by providing institutions, firms, advisors, and their clients with accessible and innovative solutions that break the status quo.

Wealth Professional Canada objectively assessed each entry for detailed information, leading innovation, and proven success – along with benchmarking against the other entries – to determine the 30 named 5-Star WealthTech Providers across the below categories:

➜ Financial Planning Software;
➜ CRMs;
➜ Back-Office Support;
➜ Financial Tools/ Dashboards;
➜ Digital Marketing

FutureVault Chief Executive Officer, Daniel Kenny, shared a few comments regarding the future intersection of technology and wealth management, along with the company’s growing recognition in the industry,

“Our technology has reached a tipping point in terms of awareness in the market, and the unique benefits we can offer our clients. What exactly is a vault? Why are financial institutions now invested in our technology? The answer lies in a paradigm shift happening right now that empowers the end client and makes their critical documents and data the cornerstone of every interaction with their financial services providers.”

Daniel Kenny, FutureVault CEO

While technology will undoubtedly play an ever-greater role in the daily lives of the modern wealth professional going forward, the platforms that improve the wealth professional’s capacity while importantly enabling greater value to be delivered to the end client and their family members will continue to be the most successful.

According to FutureVault, implementing best-of-breed WealthTech solutions can drive impact and influence three critical areas which include:

➜ Enabling client engagement to deepen the advisor-client relationship

FutureVault Achieves Consecutive SOC 2 Type II Report

FutureVault Completes Consecutive SOC 2 Type II Examination with Top Global Auditor Ernst & Young

Toronto, Ontario, September 23, 2022  — FutureVault, an award-winning, industry-leading provider of secure document exchange and Digital Vault solutions pioneering the Personal Life Management Vault™, completes its second consecutive SOC 2 Type II examination, earning a SOC 2 Type II report issued by the global auditor Ernst & Young.

SOC 2 Type II is a robust certification within the Service Organization Control protocol, covering daily operations, ensuring that organizations adhere to and comply with leading information security policies and compliance standards for managing enterprise and client data.

FutureVault’s successful completion, of SOC 2 Type I in 2020, and now consecutive SOC 2 Type II certifications in 2021 and 2022 demonstrates the company’s ongoing commitment to industry best practices. The newly issued report for the examination period of August 01 2021 through to July 31 2022, validates the maturity, strength, and robustness of FutureVault’s internal information security, compliance, and technology protocols. Additionally, the SOC 2 Type II report reflects FutureVault’s ongoing commitment to best-in-class information security and document management for financial services organizations, professional service providers, and their clients.

While best practices are recommended for organizations undergoing the Service Organization Control examinations, the majority of organizations bypass the initial pre-assessment stage. Organizations like FutureVault that demonstrate best practices are considered the gold standard when it comes to securely protect enterprise and client data.

“The successful completion of our consecutive SOC 2 Type II examination is an incredible milestone for the FutureVault team and speaks to the maturity of our internal procedures and importantly, our ongoing commitment to information security” commented FutureVault’s Chief Technology Officer, Luke Kyleman.

“This milestone is indicative of the commitment we’ve set forth to provide our partners, customers, and their clients with world-class security and compliance policies to store, manage, and protect their information,” added Nevin Markwart, Chief Information Security Officer at FutureVault.

Supporting evidence and documentation provided by FutureVault during the SOC 2 Type II examination were stored, delivered, and accessed within the company’s corporate FutureVault product, where auditors were provisioned secure trusted access to folders and documents being requested. By conducting the examination within FutureVault, both parties streamlined accessing and requesting critical documents, saving significant time and money by eliminating back-and-forth manual exchanges of documentation. The ability to perform and streamline audit assessments within FutureVault’s secure digital vault platform demonstrates the maturity of the company’s technology and information security protocols.  

The Four Flaws and the Future of Document Management

The Four Fundamental Flaws of Document Management in Wealth Management

The traditional approach to document management in financial services and wealth management is not only outdated and flawed but comes with a handful of challenges for firms and advisors.

When you stack up the list of challenges, it’s easy to see that they result in very inefficient workflow, a resource drain on human capital, poor client and household experiences, compliance and data privacy concerns, and ultimately make it difficult for firms to scale.

Four Fundamental Flaws with Managing Documents Today

While numerous challenges (flaws) exist with the traditional approach and current systems implemented, there are four in particular that are quite prominent and have negative impacts on the firms and advisors that are still relying on them.

  1. Traditional document management is built for one function or level within an organization
  2. Traditional document management disregards the needs of the client
  3. Traditional document management requires effort and is cumbersome
  4. Traditional document management lacks visibility and compliance oversight by head office

Let’s quickly unpack these four flaws along with how they are causing very significant capacity and scale challenges for institutions and firms.

1. Focuses on only one function or “level”

It’s not uncommon for traditional document management systems to focus on providing value to one function or ‘level’ of an organization; usually, that ends up being either a back-office and compliance focus or on the advisor.

This results in a very disconnected document handling workflow across front, middle, and back-office teams along with key stakeholders and third parties involved in the process chain, ultimately leading to significant professional time spent handling unnecessary manual tasks. 

We’ve also seen many instances where several different document management solutions are being used by different teams and levels of the organization as a result.

2. Doesn’t deliver value to clients and family members

A major challenge, which is quite the oversight, is that the needs of the investor (client) are almost always either ignored entirely or are just an afterthought.

This results in a less-than-optimal experience when it comes to accessing, managing, and protecting personal and financial information for clients.

FutureVault Founder and Exec Chairman, G. Scott Paterson, recognized this as an opportunity, which eventually lead to the genesis of FutureVault and the Personal Life Management Vault™.

3. Requires manual intervention and is time-consuming

Many of the current “solutions” for managing advisor and client documents require support from key staff, including advisors, client services associates, and back-office teams to manually deliver, sort, file, and manage documents.

Ultimately, this means valuable professional time is being spent on manual, cumbersome, and inefficient work that can and should be otherwise spent working on the business and importantly, with clients.

4. Lacks visibility and compliance oversight

Last but certainly not least, from a compliance perspective, Head Offices and Broker-Dealers often lack visibility and the compliance oversight needed to know how, where, when, and what types of documents are being stored, shared, accessed, and managed at any given time of the day.

Not only does this cause friction and create a tremendous amount of work for back office teams, but this can create significant challenges and headaches during regulatory audits and reviews. 

The Future of Document Management for Wealth Management

Here at FutureVault, we’re paving the way for the future of document management in financial services and wealth management. A modernized approach where document handling workflows are synchronized and connected across the organization, where systems are integrated, where automation and AI play a role, and importantly where investors, clients, and families benefit from the ability to easily manage their personal life via a Personal Life Management Vault™.

FutureVault Chief Technology Officer, Luke Kyleman, shares some of his thoughts in the video below about what the future of document management looks like for firms and advisors, along with a few of the many ways we’re solving for the current, time-consuming, outdated approach.

FutureVault Chief Technology Officer, Luke Kyleman, shares his thoughts on the current challenges and the future of wealth management for firms and advisors with Advisorpedia at the T3 Conference.

Fortunately, we’ve been able to identify the many challenges mentioned above, enabling and positioning us to build a unique and innovative approach to managing documents and the processes that they’re involved with through a multi-tiered solution where all constituents involved — front, middle, and back-office teams, along with clients and households – benefit and gain tremendous value.
