RPA in Financial Services
Robotic Process Automation (RPA) helps wealth and asset managers improve data accuracy and significantly speed up processing times for repetitive tasks such as:
- Downloading custodian statements
- Generating reports
- Updating and mapping data
- Sending emails, alerts, and notifications
- Triggering workflows
Empaxis can help your firm leverage RPA because we program specific software — or “bots” — to memorize some of your investment operations processes. We then customize these digital bots to perform the tasks.
Use Case: Private Equity Processing Automation:
A $1+ billion AUM family office needed help with handling private equity and other alternative statements. Handling these processes are time-sensitive, but the statements would come in at inconsistent times and in large volumes, straining the firm’s capacity.
How Empaxis Helped:
Empaxis developed bots to download statements from email and custodian portals, then format, rename, and store the files. After that, the bots extract data from the PDFs and place into a report, then send internal notifications that reports are ready.
With RPA, the private equity processing gets done 12 times faster and saves the family office several hours (and several thousand) each month.
Robotic Process Automation Cuts Investment Firm Costs by up to 75%
Fee compression and inflation are here, and this affects your bottom line. Be proactive, leverage automation to keep costs down.
According to a KPMG report, RPA can reduce costs for financial services firms by as much as 75%.
RPA Increases RIA Employee Engagement
When you automate more tasks, employees have more time to do more meaningful, more human work. They can focus on higher-value processes such as:
- Serving clients
- Gathering assets
- Sales & marketing
“Employees today struggle to perform under the weight of mind-numbing, repetitive work… RPA allows employees to engage in richer interactions with others, perform work that requires more brain power, and make fewer mistakes.”
