Wealth Mangement System Selection

The new platform was going to impact about 120 staff in different ways and was to be the new central line of the business wealth management system.

We set up and managed a formal RFP process and helped run a number of workshops and vendor demonstrations, bringing to the table our expertise and knowledge of wealth management systems.
