The client is a leading financial institution headquartered in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and with banking operations in KSA, UK, Dubai, Pakistan and Qatar. It is among the top 10 financial institutions in Saudi Arabia region (by size of assets) and is considered a pioneer in introducing leading technologically advanced products to the market.
The bank had multiple systems for distribution of products spread over various asset classes. Integrating the transaction data received from these and consolidating the portfolio over various dimensions such as Customer Relationship, Organizational Hierarchy, and Product Groups was the challenge. Acquiring customers, investment planning and measuring & monitoring the performance were other needs.
After studying the client’s business requirements and mapping it to the technological support system that would enable business outcomes, Intellect proposed its Intellect® Wealth suite of products along with customized feature development.
To meet the business requirement, Intellect Design Arena’s iGCB division offered the following components from its solution suite.
- Intellect FNA (Financial Need Analysis)
