    The Consumer Duty All-Stars featuring moneyinfo, Money Alive, and Model Office

    Chris Davies kicks off the episode by talking about Model Office, their RegTech platform that helps firms with three things; governance, risk, and compliance. They discuss how they help financial planners and advisers to benchmark themselves against all the rules and regs in one place. The AI driven dashboard then allow users to view where they believe they are, compared to where they actually are, automating the diagnostic phase where firms need to work out what they've already got, and what they need to do, and automating the gap analysis at audit stage.
    Andy Kirby describes how Money Alive was established in 2018 to change the way financial professionals educate their clients, by creating a platform that empowers firms to engage their clients and prospects with interactive video experiences on financial services topics. Andy reinforces the fundamental point that Money Alive was created to address the statement 'does a client truly understand'? Andy describes how the individual evidence trail is produced at the client, adviser, and firm levels.
    Tessa then explains how moneyinfo is a branded client portal and mobile app that helps firms to deliver game-changing client engagement for forward-thinking, ambitious firms, helping them to deliver their services digitally, improving their profitability, build client loyalty,  increase efficiency, and deliver compliance confidence which is incredibly important when considering your consumer duty obligations.
    Tess reminds listeners that the podcast episode is followed by our Consumer Duty event at AdviserTech Live in November 2022. Join us at this complimentary event to hear more from each of the presenters from moneyinfo, Model Office, and Money Alive, and take a look under the bonnet of each piece of tech in some live demos.

    Ep 22: Turning around business quicker feat. Wendy Fisher, Progeny

    Ep 22: Turning around business quicker feat. Wendy Fisher, Progeny

    In this episode of the AdviserTech Unplugged podcast hosted by moneyinfo’s MD Tessa Lee, we were joined by guest Wendy Fisher, Regional Manager at Progeny to discuss the processes of adopting and implementing new client facing technology in a progressive and expanding planning firm with big aspirations.
    When Progeny adopted moneyinfo right at the start of the pandemic, they had to think on their feet. Wendy explains the implementation process, and how she tackled the challenge of getting buy-in from all internal stakeholders in the business; by offering continual training, making the portal part of every touch point with clients, and engaging the moneyinfo support team to understand the inner workings of using the functionalities of the portal.
    When Progeny initially launched their portal, they bulk uploaded 2000 clients in the first 24 hours which demonstrated they had big intentions and were going to be a real trailblazer for moneyinfo longer term, showing how the roll-out of a new piece of tech can be carried out over a much shorter timeframe than may be anticipated.
    Tess and Wendy discuss Progeny’s newly published survey: ‘Planning to Pass it On’, which explores the multi-generational transfer of wealth, the future of wealth technology, and giving access to clients’ children’s information, allowing family groups to plan for the future.
    Progeny conducted the survey as they wanted to understand more about the plans people have around inheritance and intergenerational wealth transfer, how they communicate about it, and how they feel about what is often a very emotive subject. They asked three generations (Baby Boomer, Gen X, Millennial) about their attitudes and expectations for receiving an inheritance or gifted wealth and how important this may be to their financial outlook.
    The key findings were really insightful and focus around five areas: intentions around wealth transfer; communication; emotion; expectation; and aspiration. They found that the majority of people are intending to leave an inheritance or pass on money to the next generation but beyond this, very few – only 17% - had a formal plan to do so. And only 3% had worked with a financial adviser on this.
    Tune in to the next insightful episode of the AdviserTech Unplugged podcast to fully explore these interesting topics in more detail and get a detailed summary of the ‘Planning to Pass it On’ survey findings.
