CapIntel’s wealth management technology improves day-to-day workflow efficiency and fund analysis for financial advisors, enabling wealth firms to provide enhanced services leading to outsized growth.
CI Global Asset Management (CI GAM) joins CapIntel’s impressive roster of North American wealth-tech firms, such as IG Wealth Management, Canada Life, Equitable Life and Gryphin Advantage, demonstrating the growing need for the wealth management industry to seek out and embrace digital solutions.
This new relationship demonstrates CI GAM’s commitment to innovation and relentless effort to respond to the changing needs and expectations within the wealth management industry.

”CapIntel’s solution allows our sales team to provide customized, value-added support to advisors’ practices through a streamlined, seamless process. It’s especially valuable in helping advisors adapt to the new know-your-product requirements of the client-focused reforms.”
With CapIntel’s proprietary technology, CI GAM’s wholesaler team will experience improved efficiency accessing fund comparison and analysis tools to prepare personalized proposals and present clear recommendations to current and prospective clients.
