More About Mimic
Maintain Technology Compliance
The U.S. Financial services industry staggers under the weight of nearly 270,000 laws, regulations, related penalties and advisory documents. A small or mid-sized financial services firm works under the same regulatory framework as a large one. Its technology must withstand the same regulatory scrutiny.
Investment advisors can expect to be audited every one to three years. It is imperative that advisors be completely up to date and in full compliance with all of their technology. Regulators levy heavy ﬁnes for infractions.
Protect Your Reputation
Compliance problems go on a company’s public record. The SEC and Central Registration Depository maintain searchable databases of all registered advisors. If technology or data security fails a compliance audit, then current clients, prospective clients and competitors will know.
You must have a solid, well thought out, tested, reliable plan to protect your clients’ sensitive ﬁnancial information. If clients cannot trust you with their data, why should they trust you with their ﬁnancial future?
Guard Against Hackers
Financial services is the industry most targeted by hackers. Small ﬁrms are particularly vulnerable. 66% of small businesses don’t have a security plan in place and 47% of businesses have lost conﬁdential data due to deliberate theft. Compromised data translates into signiﬁcant business losses. The average cost per incident now runs into the millions.
Computer viruses can cause disruption and disaster. Anti-virus software helps, but it does’t keep pace with the growing number of threats. You need expert support.
Implement a Reliable Disaster Plan
Most small to midsize businesses have no recovery plan in the event of a network outage, data loss, or other I.T. disasters. Among those who do have a plan, over half have never conducted a disaster recovery simulation. In a real-life disaster situation, most plans are missing some critical sections or details.
Technology can make or break a ﬁnancial services businesses. Inefﬁcient systems suck up manpower and delay response time to clients and markets.
We live in a mobile world with the expectation of instant information. If an advisor is not up to date on technology, clients will notice.
The market is ﬂooded with professionals giving ﬁnancial advice. You need robust technology and efﬁcient communications to give your business a polished image and a competitive edge.
93% of small business owners are unhappy with their process efﬁciency. Are you one of them? Technology doesn’t have to be part of the problem. It can be part of the solution.
You need good technology to be a good advisor. Healthy I.T. systems support the efﬁcient ﬂow of information. They allow faster response time to markets and to clients.
To be a trustworthy business, you must have trustworthy I.T. systems. You must make your clients feel safe with reliable technology, accessible lines of communication and secure data storage.
