NEW YORK, July 10, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Broadridge Financial Solutions, Inc. (NYSE:BR), a global fintech leader and new addition to the S&P 500 Index, today unveiled Broadridge® Smart Insights™, a new cloud-based wealth management solution that helps advisors connect more meaningfully with clients and prospects. Leveraging predictive analytics, Broadridge Smart Insights helps advisors sharpen their client acquisition strategy by providing detailed profiles and insights into clients who are an optimal "fit" for their practice. The solution combines consumer demographic, financial and behavioral information and Broadridge datasets with machine learning and proprietary technology within a secure, multi-channel platform.
A recent whitepaper published by research firm ESI ThoughtLab and Broadridge found that only 25% of wealth advisors leverage data and analytics to understand clients and fewer than 10% use AI within their current practices.

Broadridge Smart Insights empowers advisors to be more productive and efficient, by placing the latest technology and analytics at their fingertips, enabling them to grow relationships and their businesses with the right data and insights at the right time," said Steve Scruton, President of Broadridge Advisor Solutions.

Using artificial intelligence and advanced analytics, Broadridge Smart Insights supports enhanced prospect profiles and automated content recommendations to help advisors engage clients and prospects more effectively – maximizing the workday while growing ROI. Advisors will be provided with timely and relevant content to share with clients and prospects through email, social media and other channels. The platform will score prospect and advisor attributes to enable advisors to pursue relationships that are most likely to be successful.
"In today's digital environment, personal insights are just as critical to a financial advisor's practice as exceptional financial acumen," said Salvatore Sodano, Vice Chairman of Broadridge Advisor Solutions. "Smart Insights arms advisors with the information they need to make timely, authentic personal connections with clients and prospects while providing a heightened level of customer service."
