Our client is an independent wealth management firm that helps its customers simplify wealth management and make effective financial decisions.
The company focuses on building a relationship based on trust, personalized service, and uncompromising integrity with its customers.
The fragmented and disparate systems of the client were getting in the way of them being able to serve their customers. The information in multiple systems varied, leading to data inconsistencies and increased cloud infrastructure costs.
The organization was technologically struggling, and most executives were switching between multiple solutions for their day-to-day tasks.
While all of this caused operational inefficiency in the business and created problems with internal communication, a lot of time was exhausted on mundane and insignificant tasks. The client was using three different applications and a user-facing software for their customers- all of them not talking to each other.
The client wanted to set up a seamless and efficient application to help its employees complete their day-to-day tasks efficiently and also provide its end-users great user experience.
Our team of 11 seasoned experts worked closely with the client to identify sections for improvement in the present structure to propose a solution. We followed an agile approach, including multiple stakeholder meetings and design workshops where we delivered approximately 55 Figma screens to derive the best ones. With rapid prototyping, testing, and alignment with the client, we continued advancing towards the final product.
Our team designed a Wealth Management solution with three modules- Tax Advisory, Wealth Management, and Client Module, primarily a desktop-based application. However, the client module was a mobile-first module to help customers access it on the go. We designed a single platform for all business processes and revamped manual billing to automated.
We created a microservices architecture using NodeJS that provided speed, scalability, and transparency without overloading the infrastructure.
We produced the interactive prototype & a modern microservices based solution for wealth management for the client. Our solution was built on React and leveraged Redux for handling application state management. Additionally, we used Figma for prototyping, designing, and wireframing.
We used Node.js for the backend technology to deal with server-side operations for all services for the client. The microservices architecture provided the client with the agility in operations without adding costs. We only required a small team of developers to build a Node JS based application in a short duration.
For storage and management of data, we used Postgres SQL because of its high performance and transaction security. It also provides features to strengthen the database for preventing cyber-attacks and security breaches.
We used AWS ECS service for building container-based applications on-premises or in the cloud with Amazon ECS to store data anywhere and for reliable tooling, management, workload scheduling, and monitoring across environments.

This feature of the solution helps the client maintain user-based license compliancy. We featured various aspects of User Management for them as - Users, roles, and teams.
The client can oversee, coordinate and measure interactions with its clients and potential clients.
This feature helps trace the leads and track their journey to identify upsell and cross-sell opportunities.
A built-in reconciliation mechanism helps with seamless reconciliations and corrections for efficient operations and better visibility into actual wealth consumed.
The application was also integrated into an Investment Application, with the full range of investment products.
