Client challenge

As one of the world’s premier fixed income investment managers, this firm is perceived as a leader by others in the investment management industry. Firm leaders understood that new CRM technologies would drive better data outcomes—allowing them to continue their mission of creating opportunities for investors everywhere.

Achieving this meant taking a user-led approach: designing their systems to work more efficiently, consistently, and intuitively for their institutional and wealth management business line advisors. With a CRM system that could equip them with on-demand access to the latest financial data and insights, they could better service their clients and continue to shape the future of investment management.

KPMG's financial services acumen coupled with technology experience enabled us to support this firm's desire to serve investment clients better through innovation.


Having the right client data is crucial to this firm’s ability to provide thoughtful, intelligent, and critical investment recommendations to its clients. In the competitive asset management industry, the right technology solutions (such as cloud) can mean greater efficiencies in how that data and information is gathered. 

Firm leaders turned to KPMG for advisory professionals who speak their language. Our financial services acumen coupled with technology experience enabled us to support their desire to serve investment clients better through innovation. KPMG's alliance with Microsoft also influenced selection of KPMG to fulfill their needs.

The investment firm needed to rethink global sales strategy and deploy a CRM application that could standardize and refine sales and service processes and KPIs. With the firm's user experience needs in mind, KPMG and Microsoft began collaborating. Taking into account business enablement, total investment cost, and future sustainability, the investment firm selected Microsoft Dynamics as their core CRM platform, allowing them to:


Increase collaboration and information sharing among Client Services, Business Development, Product Management, and other departments.


Create visibility into the effectiveness of marketing activities, allowing for continuous optimization.


    Increase transparency into client financial account portfolios, making information easily accessible.

    By upgrading their CRM platform, the firm's institutional and wealth management advisors benefited from easier access to the client data they needed—essentially enabling them to deliver better investment opportunities.

    Benefits to client

    KPMG’s intelligent forecasting models drove significant improvements in our client’s forecasting performance and insights, including:


    50 percent improvement in forecast accuracy.


    Improved insights by incorporating new internal and external data points and signals.


      Estimated time savings of 30 to 40 percent by using predictive analytics rather than manual models to create forecasts.

      Ultimately, we helped this investment firm roll out a next-generation, holistic CRM solution with simplified mobility, advanced reporting analytics, and a unified user experience. Equipped with client data at advisor's fingertips, the firm is now transforming the way people invest.

      KPMG insights

      • Beyond the technology challenge is a greater business challenge

        Often, transformation isn’t just a matter of plugging in a technology solution. It takes thoughtful examination into the client’s business, formulating a holistic strategy, and then implementing technology that addresses the key business problem and enables the organization to succeed. Remaining technology agnostic allows us to make recommendations based on client needs, as opposed to force fitting a solution to work for a client.

      • People at the center of technology

        Solving a business problem means truly understanding user needs and desires. We believe that truly effective technology solutions are designed with the user in mind. Achieving that in itself takes close collaboration with our clients. The outcome is a technology investment that serves a purpose for our clients and their customers, rather than technology for the sake of touting features.
