Regulatory provisions, digitisation and cost pressure have a lasting impact on the business of financial intermediaries. Accordingly, they expect not only personal service and first-class products from their partner bank, but also automated processes and IT tools of the highest standard.
VP Bank has therefore relaunched the existing information platform for financial intermediaries in October 2016. ProLink provides targeted support to external asset managers, fiduciaries and lawyers in their day-to-day work so they can offer their discerning clients the very best services. For this purpose, VP Bank makes first-class services and up-to-date information available – at any time and from anywhere. Complex topics such as FATCA, MiFID and AIA are now processed tailored to the target groups and explained in a readily understandable manner. In addition, all forms are provided to the financial intermediaries in a simple format. Furthermore, selected recommendations on equities, bonds and alternative investments are offered, as well as up-to-date market assessments. In the monthly Market Update Calls, ProLink users can swap information with VP Bank market experts on current topics.
The personal exchange of ideas with client advisors and other experts continues to be of great importance. In order to simplify communications, a list of all contact persons of the different teams as well as of selected experts is now available. “The new ProLink platform boasts quality content, up-to-date information, intuitive navigation and a clear structure – exactly what our financial-intermediary clients value the most. Considering the great importance of the financial-intermediary business, we will be making further investments in our infrastructure in the near future”, explains Christoph Mauchle, member of Group Executive Management of VP Bank Group.
Since its foundation 60 years ago, VP Bank has become an established partner for financial intermediaries who particularly value the modern infrastructure, wealth of expertise and many years of experience.
