Whether an investment banking institution is in the business of underwriting, originating and maintaining markets for clients issuing securities, providing advisory services, facilitating mergers or acting as principal in buying or selling securities, nothing is more important than building and maintaining a strong network of relationships.
Client relationships in investment banking are multi-dimensional and high-demand. Investment banks must deliver responsive client service across multiple communication channels and excel in key areas of customer relationship management (CRM). From client onboarding through delivery of exceptional customer service, CRM allows relationship managers to focus on clients rather than administrative tasks. Sophisticated CRMs that can accommodate a wide range of functionality are essential to manage and leverage investment banks’ customer relationships and key contacts.
