Leading companies are constantly evaluating how to remain relevant and thrive as the world evolves, and this partnership demonstrates Equitable Life’s commitment to constantly push what best-practice looks like in the financial services industry.
For more than 100 years Equitable Life has worked with advisors to support Canadians with their financial goals. As a mutual company, with no other competing interests, Equitable Life’s duty and priority rests only with clients. CapIntel’s intuitive platform is helping Equitable Life meet this commitment by enabling wholesalers and financial advisors to build, analyze, and compare portfolios and deliver personalized recommendations. The CapIntel platform streamlines these processes helping wholesalers and financial advisors have stronger, more transparent conversations with clients leading to the best client results.
“We are committed to continuously finding ways to leverage technology for the benefit of our clients and partners,” said Cam Crosbie VP, Savings and Retirement at Equitable Life of Canada. “CapIntel provides an intuitive, powerful platform that our wholesalers and advisor partners can use to grow their business by focusing on the client experience and cultivating meaningful relationships.”
The Equitable Life partnership comes at the heels of CapIntel’s partnership with IG Wealth Management and a strategic relationship with The Canada Life Assurance Company (Canada Life). This momentum signals accelerated movement among Canadian financial services leaders increasing their work with fintech companies to enhance advisor and client experience.
“Having a Canadian mutual financial services leader, like Equitable Life, use CapIntel to boost wholesaler and financial advisor effectiveness is a testament to our platform’s value,” said James Rockwood, Founder and CEO of CapIntel. “In this digital age, there is an increased desire amongst financial services companies to work more effectively using technology. Established financial services companies are advancing their capabilities through partnerships with fintechs, and we are proud to support these companies and accelerate their digital evolution.”
With over 10,000 financial advisors and 500 wholesalers now using the CapIntel platform, Canadians are experiencing the benefits of working with financial advisors who provide an efficient, personalized, and transparent experience.
As this momentum in the financial services industry continues, CapIntel will continue to develop the platform to meet the needs of wholesalers and financial advisors. Most recently, this included the addition of a client focused reforms (CFR) module released in Q4 of 2021 to support financial advisors with new compliance regulations.
