29 Apr Fintech, Hedge Funds and Online Meetings
Online meetings are simply not the same as face-to-face, but we are all having to get to grips with them fast to not lose clients!
The essence of a meeting hasn’t changed.
Whether it’s a face-to-face meeting or an online meeting, as are customary at the present time, meetings are designed for KYC purposes, to garner information, help advisers hit targets and stay compliant. The expectation that this remains the case is as certain as everything else is currently uncertain. After all, what good is a meeting if one can’t remember the details or what to do next?

Taking good meeting notes from online and face-to-face meetings for financial regulatory requirements is critical.
Taking good meeting notes isn’t simply just good practice for time-saving and data quality purposes; in industries such as the financial industry in particular, they are a regulatory requirement to stay compliant (MiFID II, RDR, SM&CR, etc), even more so today with client and agent contact happening from afar through online meetings (also known as virtual meetings). They are also vital for in-house affairs and housekeeping – for instance, if employees have been furloughed, to ensure that when they return, it’s as though they have never been away. Employees also have a duty of care, as always, to their staff, to ensure they are mentally as well as physically well during this time, which means further documenting is needed.
So, what’s the best fintech solution for capturing notes from online meetings for the financial sector if professionals don’t have time to themselves but must for compliance purposes?
