NexJ helps global financial services firms meet their regulatory and fiduciary requirements
Toronto, ON (January 16, 2017) — NexJ Systems Inc. (TSX: NXJ), a provider of enterprise customer management solutions to the financial services and insurance industries, announced today that the US Wealth Management division of a leading Canadian Bank has selected NexJ Customer Process Management (CPM) to meet new compliance requirements mandated by the US Department of Labor.
The firm selected NexJ CPM for its ability to streamline the documentation of advice and recommendations, a key requirement for an evidence-based approach to meeting the Fiduciary Rule. NexJ CPM quickly guides front-office users through data entry, simplifying and streamlining the process by asking the right questions at the right time. NexJ CPM saves advisors time by automatically pre-filling information about the client from integrated sources and synchronizing updates across all systems. Full audit and traceability makes it easy for compliance teams to provide necessary information to regulators when required.
The solution will be rolled out to the firm’s 3,800 front-office users to help meet the requirements before enforcement comes into effect in April, 2017.

The DoL Fiduciary Rule
The DoL “Fiduciary Rule”, elevates standards for financial advice, forcing financial advisors (FAs) to operate at a fiduciary standard when making retirement-related investment recommendations to clients.
