-Aspire Systems has recently partnered with Temenos and is currently working with Singapore’s 2 big banks to implement digital channel solutions.
SINGAPORE /PRNewswire/ — Aspire Systems, a global provider of digital transformation services, formalized a partnership agreement with Temenos, the software specialist for banking and finance to collaborate on development and implementation of digital solutions.

Among others, Aspire has worked with two of the biggest private wealth management banks in Singapore and demonstrated accelerated deployment and speed to market while keeping implementation costs under control.

“The wealth management industry faces challenges on multiple fronts,” noted Mahalakshmi Santaram, Head of Digital User Experience, BFSI, Aspire Systems. “The emergence of Fintech startups, changing consumer expectations and an evolving regulatory environment is forcing executives to stay on their toes. Firms must wake up to the new reality or risk being disrupted.”

PWC reports in “Sink or Swim: Why Wealth Management Can’t Afford to Miss the Digital Wave” that despite increased use of digital tools by HNWIs, the majority of wealth management firms do not have adequate digital capabilities to plug gaps in their current offerings. Only 23% of clients with assets worth over USD 10 million would choose to recommend their current advisor, according to the report.

Meanwhile, in Singapore alone, the number of Singaporean HNWIs is projected to grow by over 18%, to reach under 188,000 by 2019, while HNWI wealth is forecast to expand by 27.6%, to reach US$1.1 trillion by the same year, according to Singapore Wealth Report 2015.

“By integrating differentiated digital capabilities into their systems, firms can provide the new kind of wealth management experience that clients expect today,” asserts Mahalakshmi. “To enable digital success, firms need a trusted technology partner offering an array of performance-based yet cost-effective digital solutions that can scale to accommodate an expanding customer base.”
