While the industry is looking to regain trust and comply with new regulations, the current global pandemic has impacted how financial advisors work and engage with clients. Luckily, technology offers opportunities to deal with these challenges, making it easier to comply with regulations, work with your clients and streamline business operations.

In a move to help more financial firms scale their operations for success, Umlaut has partnered with Spark Financial Group to provide AFSL approved solutions for document and workflow management.
