Digitalization: The Future of Wealth Management

Digitalization: The Future of Wealth Management

The wealth management industry is in the midst of a monumental shift due to changing demographics, the influx of new generation potential investors, transitional global scenarios, and most importantly the rampant digitalization. This pace of change has been long predicted but the pandemic has accelerated its adoption, providing continuous opportunities as well as posing new challenges for the wealth managers to sustain, grow, and strive in the market.

Amongst the factors backing the criticality of the digital transformation lie the most persistent and influencing one which is – the changing dynamics of the potential investors. As per a study by Roubini ThoughtLab, almost 50% of the investors are ready to shift if their expectations are not met. The ground is shifting with the wealth getting passed on from baby boomers to Gen-X and millennials. Also, gender is changing with more women investors acquiring responsibility for wealth management, both by inheritance and their own acquisition.

Even the banking leaders like CITI Bank has been vocal about the urgency of digitalizing the wealth management infrastructure to survive and thrive in the coming years and the bold statement by Rodolfo Castilla, Global Head of Wealth Management Products and Platforms, reinstates that digitalization is the future.

 “We’re very urgent. We know that if we don’t get there first, we’ll be the ones disrupted and killed.”

This is enough testament to realizing that the only way to move ahead and climb the ladder up for the wealth managers is to go digital and have a smart way to go about it.

Essential and founding principles to drive a successful digital transformation

Before we discuss the value propositions and effective tools for futuristic digital transformation and adoption for the wealth managers, we need to gain an understanding of the base principles that will be central to creating sustainable and smarter digital wealth management capabilities. The wealth managers and management firms need to view these principles as the core values to base their digital strategy upon to reap greater outcomes.

  • Inculcate a customer-centric approach: Client-centricity is the most crucial variable in the success of any business digitalization and wealth management is not an exception. Becoming a customer-centric organization would need more than just a sound CRM tool and stunning apps with user-friendly UI.

    It needs a far more disciplined approach that sees the client as the foremost pillar of all communications and not vice-versa. The wealth managers need to develop a sound framework to closely understand and comprehend customer journeys to further gain insights into the challenges they face and the solutions they are looking for. A thorough understanding and subsequent anticipation of the client’s need is what will help wealth managers to develop a long-standing and winning digital strategy.

  • Focus on multi-generational investor needs: When thinking of the digital-first strategy, some wealth managers only think about the millennial population which is a serious error in judgment on their part. While millennials might hold a larger portion of the client mix, all the other generation clients are also expecting and better responding to digital-first services.  As mentioned in the beginning, the women investors are also a chunkier part of the mix due to their growing income levels and inheritance of family money.

    In short, the advisors need to build their capacity of addressing the varied investment goals of the multi-generational investors and make, the ‘Family wealth office’ a striking reality backed by customization option for aggregate portfolio management.

  • Build your investment models on the outcome instead of product: As a customer-centric, digital-first wealth management service provider, it is imperative to build goal-oriented products with room for personalization. The wealth managers will need to break away from the traditional product-based selling approach and will need to sell outcomes in order to derive a greater audience and close better deals.

    The firms should proactively start experimenting and building their outcome-based portfolios that successfully meet the varied short term and long term objectives of their clients.

  • Rethink efficiency and drive agility through automation: The banking and financial sector require more complex and advanced technological solutions as compared to any other industry and therefore, a large amount of data analyses and development of a collaborative and secure ecosystem becomes of utmost importance for wealth managers to bring efficiency and agility in their business.

    They will need to closely assess and build automation capabilities that maintain and further strengthen their business value set along with helping the clients to smoothen and fasten the processes.

Think omnichannel – choose a hybrid approach

Go digital but do not forget the human value.

Omnichannel wealth management services are the perfect middle-ground enabling the best of online and traditional face-to-face services. The client of today needs a more DIY-based model with various touchpoints and 24×7 services, making omnichannel a norm for the digitalized world.

Areas that can be automated and delivered through automated channels require robust AI capabilities whereas areas of personalized and holistic advice should be reserved for the human advisors. Hence, exploring a hybrid-advice model wherein the wealth manager can combine the best of Robo and human services to lead a more successful digital path.

Key areas for digital-first initiatives and vital tools for their implementation

Now that we have discussed the prerequisites for digital transformation, let us shed some light on the crucial areas for digital adoption and the most popular, trusted, and safe tools to implement the same.

  • Credit decisioning: Covering all the lending products in retail and corporate along with all the risk assessment needs and portfolio analysis, credit decisioning and its management can be automated using AI-driven platforms like Kabbage, Capitalfloat, Ondeck, Fundbox, Fundingcircle and XAI platforms like Google, Thales XAI, Rules AI, AI explainability 360, Temenos XAI.
  • Customer analytics: For any strategy to work, customer journeys need to be studied and analyzed deeply to understand customer needs, wants, and expectations. There are multiple data analytics platforms like Monkeylearn, Lexalytics, Meaningcloud Rosette, Clarabridge, etc. for the fintech sector that can be used for successful tracking and mapping of customers.
  • Fraud management: Security of financial transactions and confidential information is the number one concern and the most important factor to consider when going digital. There are multiple payment gateways and security-enriching platforms like Fraud.net, PayPal commerce platform, Matlab, SEON fraud fighters, Simility, Feedzai that offer effective prevention from frauds on payments of all types.
  • Client due diligence: In the absence of personal touch and wider geographic penetration through online services it becomes important to leverage the use of optimized solutions for CDD. Microsoft Computer Vision, Amazon Rekognition, Google Cloud Vision, DeepPy, Nanonet, and the like can be really effective in offering effective CDD solutions.
  • Interactive engagement: Adding a human dimension to all the digital channels enable better personalization of services and tools like Video API-Vonage, EnableX, Mux; Hybrid chat- Liveperson, Now, Rulai, Manychat, Bant, etc., are great assets to enhance the human capabilities of the digital approach.


Client-centric, advice-oriented model will form the backbone of digitalization for wealth managers looking to thrive in the near future, and adopting a hybrid strategy that intermingles automation with the human touch will ensure greater success and wider innovation driving enhanced customer experiences. Maveric’s proven record in developing and offering best-in-class fintech solutions can help the wealth managers in achieving unprecedented digital growth through a cost-effective and optimized model.

AccelerateNext with Temenos Transact Upgrade

AccelerateNext with Temenos Transact Upgrade

Keeping up with the times, or being ahead of it, is a necessity for financial institutions, banks in particular. This need to be ahead makes them act swiftly to changes, adopting best-case solutions to provide features to customers. These extensions over the years turn complex and expensive, ultimately hampering growth.

More and more banks are paying attention to these complexity costs that their legacy systems incur, and Temenos Transact offers them a great way to move forward. The tools available in Temenos Transact manage front and back end of banking operations, and their flexibility enables shorter to-the-market timelines, efficiently.

The Temenos upgrade options

Temenos upgrade options

When banks are aiming for an upgrade with Temenos, there are two mandatory activities that needs to be done: one is the runtime upgrade and other is the core application upgrade. There could also be other activities or migrations involved as the figure above highlights, but they may or may not be implemented based on the limitations and necessities.

A runtime upgrade is concerned with the Transact application framework be it C-based TAFC or java based TAFJ. While the C-based systems will be upgraded to TAFJ, the banks that are already on TAFJ will be upgraded to the latest framework. A database migration would be mandatory during the move from TAFC to TAFJ, while systems already on TAFJ can upgrade to a newer version of RDBMS as an optional activity. During this process, upgrading from a legacy operating system framework like HP UX, Solaris, or IBM AX to a modern Linux-based system.

This can also be used as an opportunity to move to a browser-based application server instead on a desktop-based one. Moving across browser-based options is possible too, say from Websphere or Weblogic to JBoss. Also, if the banks decide to only go with the technical upgrade to take advantage of features that are available in newer versions, moving customer decisions to the core feature will provide better results.

Challenges and the nitty-gritties

Upgrading Temenos has its own challenges, but these can differ from bank to bank. Broadly, these can be classified into two sections: Generic challenges and application specific challenges.

Generic Application Specific
  • Uninterrupted service to customers
  • Effort/Cost Vs Benefits
  • Implementation Time-lines
  • Hardware Compatibility
  • Infrastructure related challenges
  • Training and Change Management
  • Resource Augmentation
  • Back to core
  • TAFC to TAFJ conversion
  • Retrofitting Local code and Interfaces
  • Mock strategy
  • New Module (Product) implementation
  • Product Migration
  • Message Formats
  • New Framework implementation
  • Moving from legacy INFOBASIC code to Java
  • Move from Web Services to ReST APIs

Among generic challenges, ensuring very little downtime is important for customer satisfaction. Conducting effort and cost versus benefit analysis before discoverization, and then an internal pre-analysis session to understand the impact on local developments help in this regard. The bank’s Temenos team should be involved from the beginning of the upgrade process too, and changes in infra hardware training or resource requirements should also be considered. Once these factors are known or in place, the implementation timeline can be created. These implementation timelines must also factor in the time required to be compliant with regulations and other necessities.

Factoring in hardware compatibility and infrastructure related changes allows for an accurate timeline, and the tech stack included in every Temenos release provides details about the current hardware being used. This information can be used to decide if hardware related upgrades are essential. If there is a substantial difference between the source and target release, banks can assess the technical capabilities of their internal teams based on changes in requirements and train relevant resources.

Changes on the technical front start with the backend core. While moving to a latest release, it is worth spending some time to understand if some of the local development done on the current release can be moved to core. this will save retrofitting related work, and help with better product architecture, streamlined processes and better functional capabilities. Moving a module to core helps in future upgrade as well.

Starting the upgrade process

Target release selection and prep-work before upgrade, puts details out in the open and helps in clearly defining goals and results that are expected from the upgrade. Based on these, the release to be upgraded can be selected. The options here are either the most recent release, or a stable but slightly older release. The points that need to be considered during both activities are listed below.

Target release Selection Pre-Upgrade Prep work
  • Analyze the context
  • Should I go to the most recent release or select a bit older but a stable release?
  • Mapping business components/requirements against the release notes/capabilities
  • Introducing new modules
  • Changes in framework
  • Shortlisting of releases before workshop
  • Finalizing the best release for the organization during workshop
  • Internal discussion between bank’s IT and business teams
  • Understand the pain areas of the business teams.
  • Ringfence the IT and business stake holders.
  • Trace documentation and test cases for your existing customization.
  • Review IT infrastructure and highlight areas to improve.
  • Once you are ready with these consult Temenos or service partners.

After discussing these points internally, the organization should shortlist a few target releases. Upgrade is not only a technological change; it brings in a lot of functional changes in the newer release, so the internal discussion between banks, the IT team and the business team is important. This helps in understanding the pain areas of the business teams and the capabilities of the target release.

Stages of upgrade

There are different stages of upgrade, depending on the current state of the organization. Depending on the exact context, some of these stages might not be relevant for the organization too. This chart below lists all the different stages that can be a part of the upgrade process, and organizations are required to pick steps that make the most sense to them.

Stages of upgrade

To simplify the stage selection process, here’s an example: An organization up for a pure technical upgrade should not consider the stage 4 of this process, which is related to functional upgrade in a typical technical upgrade scenario. An update will start with discovery and scoping, which requires the bank’s involvement, starts with hardware assessment. Also, some of these stages can and will run in parallel or one stage can end after the next stage.

Run-time upgrades depend on the current environment, and will be either a lower to higher release upgrade in terms of TAFC or TAFJ – or a migration if the move is from TAFC to TAFJ, which comes with its own additional steps. Technical upgrade stage is where core layout changes are done, and any new product to be implemented will be done in a parallel way. Code conversion of the target release changes in routine to make use and new improved functionalities, and can help to compare between the local developments and their source codes.

Mock upgrade strategy

Planning mocks and executing them in a timely manner is one of the most critical factors for success for an upgrade project. Here, the base pack practice approach is divided into different mock cycles:

Mock upgrade strategy
The example of Mock cycle 4 shows how there can be multiple marks and/or cycles inside a cycle. Initial mock cycles don’t consider the local components yet but only checks how the core runs in the newer release. After that, core and local codes and multi-threaded local jobs can be conducted. These mock cycles will help in running upgrades smoothly and seamlessly.

Back to core

There are two scenarios possible with back to core – either by configuration, or with local development in addition to it. The local development part is important if the organization is currently using a process that might not be totally fitting with all the core capabilities, and can get a better architecture and lesser maintenance.

Some of the main activities during Back to core exercise are :

  • Existing functionality mapping to new system/modules
  • Impact assessment.
  • Existing customization will be mapped to new core functionalities.
  • Further gaps will be customized
  • POC
  • Product configuration document.
  • FSD and TSD for any additional customization.
  • Descoping of local Transact tables and data migration to core tables.
  • Preparation of User guides and training documentation.

In the discovery and scoping phase, analysing the local development enables the IT team to identify the customizations done and the business flow that is being followed – and then compare it against the capabilities of the core modules.

During assessment. Quite a few factors need to be analysed –be it the extent of benefit resulting from the effort put in, changes that are future proof, scalability, impact on surrounding systems, usage, licencing costs and more. If an existing customization is known to store data in a local custom table, it has to be moved to the core. The process needs to have a proper user guide and training documentation, as employees and customers who are used to existing customized processes need to understand the same. The documentation can start during the analysis phase even, and must be continually updated until the module goes into UAT.

Migrating from Legacy T24 modules to latest Transact modules

This is relevant for a functional upgrade. However, similar situation may arrive even for a technical upgrade, e.g. moving away from Temenos webservice to IRIS.

Module migration during a functional upgrade evolves around two parts, first implement the new module and then migrate the data from legacy T24 module to the new module.

Below is an example showing the approach that we follow for LD to AA migration.

Migrating from Legacy T24 modules to latest Transact modules


The latest upgrade from Temenos has several changes, on both business and framework fronts. Several new modules, including Temenos Insight for deep analysis and high quality reports and Temenos Payment to support seamless, high performance payment solutions, provide banks the kind of flexibility, safety and control they need. The new version of cloud-native and cloud-agnostic Temenos User Experience Platform (UXP) supports both mobile and Internet banking. These features are designed to improve performance and customer responsiveness while controlling costs. With Temenos, banks can smoothly digitize their core banking processes and regulations while staying agile. Get a perspective on Temenos Transact upgrade from this webinar recording. With the help of an experienced Temenos partner like Maveric, banks can accelerate their upgrade approach in a cost effective, non-disruptive and secure way.

The emergence of mobile banking in traditional banks and the promise of Temenos Infinity

The emergence of mobile banking in traditional banks and the promise of Temenos Infinity

Will traditional banks switch to mobile-only banking?

In light of the Covid-19, we have seen global economies getting hamstrung with budgets being pushed back significantly. The banking sector is under a tremendous amount of strain to keep their businesses running smoothly. A significant amount of volatility has been created in capital markets around the world. Traditional banking systems were primarily engaged by the baby boomers. However, it has been lacking lately due to trepidation in engaging with in-person / physical banking processes.

So where do traditional banks go from here in this new normal?

Let us first understand, what risks do traditional banks face if they stay dated? The last 8 – 10 years saw the introduction of Fintech startups and solutions as new entrants following the economic crisis of 2008. This was further amplified with the massive penetration of affordable internet-enabled smartphones into the market which completely changed consumer behavior. Online banking, mobile apps, and wallets became widely accepted by businesses and people (especially millennials) as a primary means of transaction.

What should traditional banks change?

Adopt a new strategy and leverage digital channels

Traditional banks with their brick-and-mortar approach are still vied by the older generation. This can be attributed to the fact that not all people are inherently tech-savvy. However, consumer preference tells us a different story. Mobile banking reigns as the primary means of transaction with the larger populace being on the Gen X, Millennials and Gen Z. Mobile banking is also more convenient, secure, works 24×7, and eliminates the need to visit a branch for transactions and enquiries. In fact, this is a critical factor that helped Fintech companies thrive onto the new generation cohort. They clearly prefer engaging with a digital platform on a handheld device over traditional banking, as they have started their lives with mobile devices – including their first toddler game. This does not spell doom for traditional banks. Many banks have revamped some legacy systems and adopted digital means on mobile. These banks have been trying to address consumer demands by:

  • Personalizing transactions and engagement
  • Personalizing products (banks are doing away with a one-size-fits-all approach)
  • Promoting an online banking culture as opposed to in-person engagement

Even if mobile banking becomes the norm everywhere, banks must be ready with the required technology as well as be prepared to address the following points.

  • User Experience: The success of any banking mobile app depends heavily on a sound user experience. Pre-cursors for a great user experience include – an impactful design thinking, a good and easy-to-navigate user interface, an aesthetic layout with visual elements that nurtures an emotional connect with consumers, and great responsiveness on part of the application itself.
  • Frictionless Customer Journey: Today’s tech savvy consumer base yearns for convenience, speed, and automation. Higher wait time, pop-ups, excessive forms, and latency in query resolution can impact engagement and deter consumers. Banks need to address these pain points at every stage of the customer journey to retain customers as well as attract new customers.
  • AI-driven Customer Experience: Improved personalization, the introduction of chatbots and virtual assistants have made customer query resolution and escalations a lot more seamless. Round-the-clock support coupled with promoting relevant products fuels a sense of desire for customers to opt in.
  • Realtime engagement and marketing: Bank’s systems should practice usage of contextually-relevant messaging to forge connections with consumers, react to their immediate intentions rather than attempting to predict them and give them a best possible offer to make a sale.
  • Analytics for a Superior Experience and Continuous Improvement: Measuring the app’s performance is important to learn how customers engage with it. This will encourage banks to market more effectively to their target audience.

According to a report released by Business Insider, mobile banking is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 2.83% between 2019 to 2024. Digital banks in some capacity are preferred by consumers as far as the enormous multitude of services on offer goes. Security with online banking is debatable but mobile banking is touted to be very secure with two-step verification and other options fail to prevent unauthorized access. Personalization is a huge advantage with digital banking services. While cold calling and random sales-related calls are often unwelcoming with consumers, personalized engagement boosts potential conversions as well as improves a consumer’s relationship with the bank.

In this competitive market, most banks have developed a mobile app/s to help customers perform banking transactions with a single click. The current Covid-19 situation has intensified the need to adopt digital banking services, applications, and cloud infrastructure. Today, adopting these tenets is pivotal for finance businesses to scale up their demand while providing personalized digital experiences to their customers at the same time.

With a dwindling aging population and young consumers on the rise, the traditional banks may not do away totally with their branches but there will be a significant reduction of branches and mobile-only banking will gain tremendous impetus for a foreseeable future with many banks looking to adopt a mobile-only future. The past few years have seen the gap in capability between a digital platform and a mobile platform reduce drastically. Mobile apps are now on par to provide the same or better services than a digital platform may have previously – the two are almost synonymous. Most consumers would welcome mobile banking. However, for the small minority of technophobic people, call centers and bank branches may remain relevant.
