With that in mind, we’ve rebuilt our functionality to maximize performance. Now, for instance, Action reports will load and be ready to print six times faster.

AdvisorEngine's >drive2020 goes virtual

Things are changing fast in the wealth management industry.  Last week, AdvisorEngine® CEO Rich Cancro shared his perspective on this moment of “hyper change” we all are experiencing. Client and market shifts in motion are now accelerating and advisory businesses must react to the pace of this change. How the industry meets is also evolving. Social distancing demands and health concerns have pushed a number of wealth management events online. That’s why for the first time in eight years, our >drive conference will not be held in-person. Instead, it will be an immersive, virtual experience held October 22-23, 2020. One of the biggest draws to past >drive events has been the opportunity for Junxure® users to gather together - administrative assistants, advisors, CEOs, firm principals and operations leaders alike - to share ideas, knowledge and experiences. With that in mind, we have designed a virtual >drive2020 conference focused on engagement.

How financial advisors can seamlessly integrate email into their CRM

Think about it for a minute, how much does your business rely on email communication?  Email has become such an important method for business communication. It’s accessible, fast, cheap and private - plus, it can be easily replicated and stored.  I’ve actually had an email account since I was in the second grade. That’s the norm these days, elementary-aged kids are using email to communicate with teachers and collaborate with friends on class projects.   According to statistics more than half of the global population now uses email - 3.9 billion people have active email accounts. In comparison, there are 3.5 billion social media users worldwide.  Since building strong relationships is a core element of providing financial advice, a financial advisor Client Relationship Management (CRM) system should support email functionality.  It’s no wonder that financial advisors are thrilled with Junxure®’s latest integration with Office 365.
