CREATING VALUE: IN-DEPTH PLANNING Wealth Strategy Building Blocks
Manage Wealth, Not Assets Affluent investors want a more holistic view and strategic, 360-degree thinking through one primary relationship. They want more face time and more counsel, as they rely on their portfolios to fund their lifestyles long into the future. They want to know you can monitor progress and make changes in an organized way. Pro-active financial planning, using 3rd-party and proprietary solutions and clear, customized reports, is now a key differentiator. SunGard solutions enhance your effectiveness at every phase of this more complex relationship, starting with automated efficiencies for proposal generation that shorten new-business cycles.
BEYOND TECHNOLOGY: Managing Wealth Differently
Wealth management has a new reality, and clients need meaningful guidance to reach their milestones. Can they educate their children? Can they create trusts and transfer wealth without tax burdens? Can they help a favorite charity? At the start of a relationship—deep profiling, research, investment planning, risk-tolerance assessment, asset allocation, portfolio construction--you can increasingly add value with SunGard tools. When you profile a client accurately, you might find assets in other institutions. Cross-selling through a client’s entire investment process also creates earnings potential. Our creative solutions let you see and know more clients, faster, so you save time while delivering a truly supportive, holistic, cost-effective approach.

DEEPENING VALUE: REAL OPTIONS Efficient Investment Management
Asset & Manager Selection
Investors are savvier about financial services. And more wary. They need help, but you need to earn their trust. Objectivity is a big part of how you can add value as you transition to more client-centric portfolio management. Wherever you are in the process—if you’re servicing SMAs or need overlay capabilities for complex multiple accounts and larger portfolios--SunGard solutions connect you to myriad investment programs and asset classes, to cutting-edge products and world-class money advisors through a single platform so you can hone custom strategies and better-manage risk and taxes. You’ll have one-click access to critical data in a streamlined environment without being limited to a single program or product.
Profile Research Planning Asset Allocation
SunGard’s business tools and platforms skillfully link all the pieces of a successful asset-management program to enhance an advisor's value and productivity.
MANAGING VALUE: COMPETITIVE INTELLIGENCE Compliance & Reporting New technology demands a new approach. Clients may not understand your backoffice bells and whistles. But you know that efficient cost reduction protects their assets. SunGard solutions save time and staffing fees through automated, custom reports and compliance checks. Transactions carry fewer errors, and a faster backoffice means more front-office relationships. Compliance doesn’t generate revenue, but can you put a cost on integrity? Our technology carefully tracks regulatory changes and fiduciary tax laws to keep investments secure. You can also deepen the link between investment and administrative staff with SunGard’s next-generation management dashboard. An easy-to-use, browser-enabled system, it provides realtime account alerts and status data in a single screen.
