RBC has entered into a strategic partnership with Conquest Planning Inc., (“Conquest”), a technology platform that is transforming financial planning by providing customized and convenient advice through enhanced digital capabilities and delivery of financial planning services to Canadians.
“The Conquest platform will help us deliver a world-class digital planning experience for clients.” Michael Walker, RBC
As part of RBC’s continued investment in next-generation digital capabilities to elevate the client experience, RBC is implementing the intuitive and collaborative solution Conquest has developed. The Conquest platform uses powerful artificial intelligence to identify effective financial strategies for clients.
An important benefit for RBC clients: Conquest’s software also provides a portal which, in future, will enable clients to access an ‘always on’, engaging and personalized financial plan that reflects – in real-time – the impact of changes to a client’s financial picture. RBC will be using this solution to complement the advice currently being provided by its financial advisors, in parallel with RBC’s unique MyAdvisor digital advice platform.
“We’re excited to bring this next generation financial planning capability to our financial planners and clients,” said Michael Walker, vice president & head, Mutual Funds Distribution & RBC Financial Planning. “In tandem with MyAdvisor, the Conquest platform will help us deliver a world-class digital advice and planning experience for our clients to help them achieve their financial goals – no matter how complex their individual and family financial needs may be.”
Mark Evans, CEO at Conquest, noted that this strategic partnership underscores the innovation happening within the financial services industry and RBC’s leadership role within this space. “We are aligned with RBC’s purpose-driven, principles-led approach to delivering leading performance and creating value across their client base. Embedding our engine within their digital ecosystem will power the future of financial advice delivery, and we couldn’t be prouder about this new collaboration.”
