CWB becomes first Canadian Schedule 1 bank to partner with Conquest, elevating the wealth experience

Conquest’s financial planning software to support the personalized wealth advisory experience for CWB Wealth Management clients

 

In a continued effort to elevate the private wealth advisory experience for its clients, CWB will be the first Schedule 1 bank in Canada to integrate Conquest's leading-edge financial planning software. Launching this fall with CWB Wealth Management private wealth advisors, the move will augment CWB's personalized, relationship-based advisory experience with the power of an innovative high-technology platform.

 

Brad Joudrie, Chief Revenue Officer at Conquest Planning, says, “We're excited to partner with CWB, our first Schedule 1 bank. Our natural scalability will allow CWB clients and advisors to engage with a single financial plan, which will continue to grow and evolve over time as the needs of the clients change. This intuitive digital platform will allow clients and advisors to easily engage and solve for these ever-changing needs. Conquest Planning continues its mission to serve all Canadians with a financial plan. This represents another significant step towards that.”

 

Conquest's AI-supported platform digitizes the process to build robust and dynamic financial plans. This will allow clients of CWB Wealth Management across Canada to benefit from better-equipped private wealth advisory teams, with more time for personalized client care.

 

"We've always had a clear view of what matters to our clients. In particular, we bring a special understanding of how the needs of successful entrepreneurs and business families evolve over time," says Matt Evans, President and CEO, CWB Wealth Management. "Our partnership with Conquest will empower CWB's private wealth teams to bring sophisticated, proactive solutions which can help to simplify our clients' lives."

 

As wealth planning needs for business owners and high-net-worth Canadians continue to grow more complex, CWB Wealth Management is committed to empowering its private wealth teams with the best tools available on the market today.

 

"We are proud to be leaders in sophisticated financial planning. Our client families come to us with a broad range of needs, including investment management, business succession, tax and estate planning, family trusts, philanthropy and more. Conquest brings next-generation interactive digital capabilities which perfectly complement our highly personal, customized approach to meeting these needs.
