Account Opening Pain Points in the Front Office: Advisors in the Dark 

Quadron Data Solutions and Aité Group Assess the Impact of Immature Account Opening Processes on Advisors and Clients

The account opening process generally involves multiple actors and systems that are often poorly integrated. Many registered representatives of broker-dealers continue to face inefficient account opening processes laden with paperwork that must be filled out by hand and lack workflow visibility across account types. If these processes are not fixed, they will continue to have a negative impact on both the front and back office.

Aité Group’s upcoming whitepaper, entitled Account Opening Pain Points in the Front Office: Advisors in the Dark, will examine the challenges around account opening inefficiencies and detail findings from a survey conducted with 515 U.S. financial advisors and 300 registered representatives of broker-dealers.

Please join Quadron Data Solutions for a webinar on these topics on October 25th at 12:00 pm ET and you will receive a complimentary copy of the whitepaper.

Other topics to be covered will include:

  • The work currently underway at brokerage firms to convert the form submission process into an entirely electronic one
  • How advisors at self-clearing firms and fully disclosed brokers ensure their brokerage account opening solutions track and enable account and product approval workflows
  • Advisors’ top requests for improvement in the account opening process, including e-signatures and other technologies in development
  • What advisors are looking for in an account opening solution, and how this differs between self-clearing firms and fully disclosed brokers
