Client Accounts (Adviser Dashboard)
In the updated adviser dashboard, Akoni has introduced a greater separation between the firm’s account(s) for managing the business’s cash and the advisers’ clients. The Client Accounts list is searchable and can be sorted to help find the right cash portfolio. Client accounts can be linked to 1 or more advisers.
Tools to add clients
There is a simple way to now for advisers to quickly add clients to their client list. Advisers can create new accounts and then issue invitations to their clients. Clients will receive an email that allows them to create a password and access the cash platform via their own dedicated login. Optionally Advisers can choose to preconfigure deposit drafts for the client ahead of sending the invitation.
Manage user logins and add account holders
Once a client account has been created. Advisers can add one or more account holders. Each account holder can be issued their own login via Akoni’s registration links that the adviser can generate as part of the invitation. Existing users/logins can be activated or deactivated if required by the advisor.
Assisted client onboarding
Advisers can now initiate and complete the client’s Akoni application on behalf of the client (required for KYC/AML purposes so that Akoni can place cash on behalf of the client). As an option you can enter all the required data and submit the application digitally. The client account holder(s) will then receive an invitation to preview and approve the application and complete a digital identity verification on the Akoni platform. The functionality to allow clients to complete their own Akoni application remains unchanged.
Updates for Organisations with Subsidiaries
Akoni has recently released a few key tools to make it easier for organisations to quickly and efficiently manage their holding and subsidiary organisations.
Updated Accounts list view
For business owners or managers that need to view and administer cash across multiple entities Akoni has refined the accounts overview screen, making it easier to see at a glance the status of each cash account.
Manage user access to each company
Managers can also utilise new tools to add or restrict logins for team members on the subsidiary accounts. New users can be issued login details via an email invitation that will give them access to whichever cash account is required.
