iShares and Embark

In the face of increasing customer choice, and price competition through digital innovation in customer engagement, how does the advisory market seek to evolve its business model?

At a time when you customers are increasingly going mobile how should you respond?

When customers are as confused as ever about saving and investing, what it’s all really worth, and how long that money might last, how can you help?

Our research continues to show the anxiety people have around their financial future?

There is a huge opportunity for the innovators in our industry to prosper, customers are increasingly seeking information and guidance around their financial position, more inclined to self-serve where they can save money. People will still seek advice at certain points throughout their lives, however the model around how people pay for that advice is changing.

So the question is, when your customer’s needs are changing and the environment around you is evolving what should you do?

One idea was Embark

A business set up to deliver the advisory market a response to these threats, in a way that engages more directly with your clients using technology in more efficient ways, and supported by cost efficient investment solutions from the world leading risk, and asset manager, BlackRock.
