Among the first to leverage SigFig’s new enterprise platform is the company’s current client, Citizens Bank Wealth Management, which will offer the CoPilot digital wealth management tool to its financial advisors. SigFig’s relationship with Citizens Bank dates back to 2016, when the bank agreed to leverage SigFig’s digital investing capabilities for its 2017 launch of SpeciFi from Citizens Investment Services.
“We are thrilled to collaborate with Citizens Bank Wealth Management to kick-off our CoPilot offering,” said Mike Sha, CEO of SigFig. “The CoPilot platform represents the importance of advisors in the financial planning lifecycle and the value they provide to clients. CoPilot brings powerful end-to-end software to advisors to further assist their clients in their financial needs.”
CoPilot automates administrative tasks for advisors to help them focus on their client relationships. The tool facilitates onboarding while providing a more personalized client experience. And to help improve the advisor’s productivity, CoPilot automates compliance processes as well as changes to the client’s risk profile and suitability.
“This is an incredibly powerful tool for our financial advisors, seamlessly digitizing many of our processes so that they can focus on what matters most – our customers, not the paperwork,” said John Bahnken, president of Citizens Bank Wealth Management.
Launched in 2007 under the name Wikinvest, SigFig is a wealthtech pioneer with more than $114 million AUM. Co-founder Parker Conrad debuted the company’s Actionable Advice offering at FinovateFall 2011. Earlier this year, SigFig acquired SmartWealth roboadvisory technology from UBS.
