A key differentiator for advisors as clients seek personalized advice
Securities-based lending solutions are becoming a key differentiator for advisors as clients increasingly seek more personalized financial advice and alternatives to liquidity in a rising interest rate environment.
The patented machine learning technology delivers actionable insights that help wealth organizations and advisors identify and efficiently target high propensity prospects, reduce loan attrition, better understand overall book trends to inform business decisioning, budget with better predictability and increase marketing spend effectiveness.
