Financial advisory networks report record inflows in early 2022 (€13.9 billion), despite market trends. In the Quantitative Observatory by e*finance consulting Wealth Management Reply, we underline the main highlights on industry trends.
e*finance consulting Reply is hosting an event on 9th November 2021 at Hôtel Le Royal (Luxembourg) to discuss the successes and failures of process automation in Asset Management (in particular, in Luxembourg ManCo’s), Asset Servicing and Wealth Management. Our panel will take an uncompromising look at the robots and share their insights regarding the do’s and the don’ts when seeking to optimise processes, including – among other options – with the introduction of Robotic and Intelligent Process Automation (RPA & IPA).
Over the last decade, financial institutions have become increasingly interested in outsourcing business activities in order to reduce costs, get access to new technologies and improve flexibility and efficiency. Find out more on outsourcing and third party risk management in our white paper, focusing on the EBA Guidelines and the pan-European regulation on outsourcing arrangements.
Operational Resilience was and will be, even more post

Luxembourg has not stopped making progress in the fight against money laundering and terrorist financing, and has taken appropriate steps to increase transparency. New technologies have also evolved a lot to support this trend and we, at Reply Luxembourg, have developed methodologies combining AML/CTF and technological expertise to support financial institutions in stepping up.

We design, develop, integrate and optimize Cloud infrastructure for financial institutions
On November 25, 2015 the European Parliament and the Council of the European Union issued the PSD2 (Revised Payment Services Directive). Reply partners with Banks to help them capitalise on the opportunities offered by the PSD2 and is able to offer several business opportunities that can be integrated as part of sustainable use cases.
Today, a worldwide virus forced homeworking in our lives. But at Reply we strongly believed in homeworking’s multiple benefits long before this virus changed our lives and habits. We analyzed numerous combinations, turned them into models, identified how to implement it smoothly and developed a strong methodology supported by a network of highly skilled experts to roll it out fast and efficiently.
Market conditions are forcing financial institutions to find new models for growth. One of the largest identified gaps for growth is the underserved and overlooked mass affluent segment.
Intelligent Process Automation enables an organisation to optimise the productivity of its people, improve efficiency, and reduce the risks associated with business processes. Intelligent Process Automation (IPA) is basically Robotic Process Automation (RPA) powered by “smart technologies”. IPA therefore makes it possible to progress from solutions focused on standard and repetitive tasks to new models based on a machine learning approach, allowing data robots to develop new skills, make judgements and provide feedback.
Humans remain the main actors in the organisation and become increasingly critical to the operation of the IPA solutions, being no longer burdened with repetitive tasks and able to leverage their time for the beenefit of value-added activities.
Automating a process or, even better, a business area in your organisation therefore goes way beyond a mere IT project. Find out all aspects you should be aware of!
Implementing intelligent process automation within an enterprise requires advanced technologies. To simplify the move towards intelligent robotisation, Reply has developed seven accelerators.
Two years ago the asset gathering and investment service industry seemed to be on the brink of a possible disruption by new digital players. But is it for real? Let’s just stop for a moment and look at where we are now.
Companies feel it’s time to move to new working paradigms, in order to achieve higher level of effectiveness in processes and results.
But they are struggling in finding the right way, in terms of approach and scope of change.
Here’s how to proceed.
Today, Financial Institutions are undergoing a process of major and sustained change, driven and necessitated by the evolution of customer behaviour, by technological innovations and by regulatory changes. The combined impact of these variables requires an extensive rethinking of current distribution and service models.
The boundary between the physical and the digital realms seems increasingly destined to disappear from all aspects of today's life. It is a fact for everyone involved, including the Financial Institutions. Taking on the challenge of this “new reality” requires multichannel strategies increasingly focused on customer engagement.
30 billion interconnected objects by 2020. This is the great opportunity that the Internet of Things (IoT) is transversally proposing to all Industries that have the ambition to offer products and services capable of “entering" into the everyday life of its Customers.
What do Amazon, Facebook, Google, Netflix or Spotify have in common? These are native-digital players that grew out of deeply innovative ideas which, having matured in the Cloud era and having developed a new generation of technologies, literally invented new scenarios for using digital services.
We actively monitor the main innovation-related hot topics in order to identify the specific aspects most relevant to Customers, looking to move quickly from the study of trends to the development and implementation of solutions in a factory logic. So-called Data Robotics, referring to the consolidation of robotics and Machine Learning techniques, facilitates the introduction and integration of automation into organisational processes.
The steady growth of the digital market has enabled a rapid spread of mobile devices around the world and in particular in Italy, where the market penetration of smartphones has now reached 83% (among the top three countries in the world). In parallel, we are witnessing the widespread use of increasingly more innovative payment instruments.
A business solution must pass from the definition of an IT architecture (Solution Architecture) that is able to bring together and integrate the services provided by existing applications with the new technologies considered. Using best practices adopted by the market, capabilities maps and a methodology derived from the experience gained over many years of activity in the Financial Institutions sector, we support our Customers in activities relating to:
