Portfolio Solutions® was honored this month to be invited as a presenter at IMPACT 20191 in San Diego, CA. Our Chairman & CEO James S. Gladney provided keynote remarks, sharing our expertise in creating a better client experience using (in part) technology. Mr. Gladney spoke to attendees seeking to learn about how technology can create value for clients of independent advisory firms like Portfolio Solutions®, who also serve as fiduciaries to their clients.
Mr. Gladney explained how Portfolio Solutions® collaborates with its technology providers to provide increasing value for its clients over time without raising their advisory fees. Strategies discussed included a focus on the firm-wide adoption of technology which enables teamwork and collaboration, ultimately supporting effective analysis and decision making for clients. Benefits of this approach for clients of Portfolio Solutions® have included:
- A single source of information for both our advisory team and clients, creating a better client experience and greater team efficiency
- Enhanced regulatory compliance, confidentiality, and cybersecurity
- Increased accuracy, visibility, and transparency for clients and teammates across all data sets
While technology itself plays an important part of the Portfolio Solutions® client experience, Mr. Gladney also noted that using it to develop personal relationships with them is one of our highest priorities. "We have more than 600 clients in 44 states2 who are served by our advisors and team located in Troy, Michigan. Using technology such as videoconferencing, screen sharing and an online client portal with secure document vault are ways we connect remotely while providing a very personal client experience" stated Mr. Gladney.
