Using Data to Grow Your Financial Firm

Tags – Using Data for Growth

 

There are many different applications of data that your financial firm can use to grow and become more successful.

In this blog post, we will discuss some of the most important considerations when using data to grow your financial firm.

 

Starting Mentality

The primary goal of data analytics is to get more precise information and draw conclusions that will be used in future activities in a timely and efficient way.

Data availability and usage must be separated from data governance and control, which is essential for successfully unlocking the value potential of data.

 

Translating Insights Into Added Value

The translation of insights into added value, on the other hand, necessitates a good knowledge of the company and financial implications.

The finance function has always been in charge of turning financial statements into business activity, and it already operates across departments by commercialising each of the organisation’s activities, options, and actions.

Ultimately, finance enjoys the unique opportunity of being able to collect data from all levels of the business as well as algorithmically process and present it for management consumption.

Today’s financial institutions must give real-time insights from data of all kinds, as well as go beyond the scope of financial insights.

To this end, the finance function needs access to structured financial data, as well as other structured company data and unstructured market information.

Only by taking this step can the finance department utilise analytics to analyse complex value connections, affect their influence on financial ratios, generate possible scenarios, and with reasonable accuracy predict future market developments.

 

Developing True Customer-Centricity

Empower employees with a Single Customer View, which gives them a comprehensive view of the customer’s history (regardless of interaction channel) and insights on the customer’s family, company, and bank employee connections. These insights will allow you to have more targeted and in-depth interactions with the client.

If you do this, you’ll have a better chance of encouraging customer loyalty and setting clear next steps. You’ll be able to confidently offer tailored next-best-deals, for example.

It is also possible to forecast future customer patterns and what their most likely next move will be based on the information of current and past consumer activities.

Even more, you may track the client journey, which includes interactions with customers, to acquire insights that will help you improve existing channels, processes, and products. Such improvements will also benefit customer service.

 

Improvement of Internal Processes

You may leverage data to assist and improve internal procedures, as all of the above cases are focused on gaining better insights into consumers in order to provide improved customer service and increased earnings.

To begin, collect and evaluate customer feedback from a variety of sources to discover ways to improve goods and services. Traditional questionnaires or focus groups are much slower, more expensive, and less accurate than these methods.

Data may also be used to improve regulatory reporting and comply with laws.
