‘Tech firms will play major role when RDR comes in’

Technology firms will have a huge part to play when the RDR is introduced, says Assureweb chief executive officer Andrew Simon.

Ahead of November’s RDR interim response, Simon says technology will play a “huge part” in the RDR’s introduction by helping advisers offer a competitive level of service.

He says: “Technology will play a part in helping advisers manage clients efficiently in terms of focused advice, non-advised sales and business management. Firms that have planned will be better suited to take advantage of the new opportunities that will arise from the new advised and non-advised models and customer agreed remuneration.”
