Q&A with Mike Smith, Global Head of Client & Digital

Why the focus on client service?

The market has shifted from a seller-led environment to one where buyers call the shots. The clients we work with recognise the need to develop a multi-channel, collaborative and content specific model that engages new customers and retains loyalty.

What’s the key to improving their experience?

Data. Client data underpins sales and marketing effectiveness. We want to shift the mindset and get our clients to think of data as a strategic asset. By providing accurate data across systems, reports and client delivery channels, we help our clients to create more personalised customer journeys that are tailored to different client types’ needs.

Where does digital fit in all this?

Clients demand complete transparency. If data gives us better insight into behaviours and touchpoints, new digital platforms allow us to layer communications to create a tailored experience. We can help you produce and disseminate targeted content to clients and investors at the right time and through the right channel using the defined personas and tiers to lead each marketing client journey.

Doesn’t this create more work?

A more efficient distribution function will optimise your workflow. We help clients with process automation, streamlining processes to drive efficient working practices throughout an organisation.
