The Wealth Management Industry is Changing – Fast:
Wealth management firms are facing significant internal and external challenges that necessitate transformation. The internal challenges include legacy technology systems, siloed business units, inefficient processes, and talent shortages. External drivers include changing client expectations, regulatory requirements, and increased competition from digital disruptors. As a result, wealth management firms must adapt and transform their business models to meet these challenges and stay competitive.
Many firms are turning to technology to transform their business operations and improve the client experience. For example, digital transformation efforts can help wealth management firms streamline operations, automate processes, and provide clients with more personalized and efficient services.
Challenges in Wealth Transformation Efforts:
While the need for transformation is clear, many wealth management firms struggle to implement successful transformation efforts. There are several reasons why transformation efforts fail or fall short. One common reason is a lack of alignment between business strategy and technology investments. As a result, firms may invest in new technology without clearly understanding how it will support their business goals.
Another challenge is resistance to change from employees. Transformation efforts can disrupt established workflows and require new skills, which can be difficult for employees to accept. This resistance can slow down the transformation process or prevent it from being successful altogether.
Inadequate planning and execution can also lead to transformation failures. Firms may lack a clear roadmap or fail to allocate sufficient resources to support the transformation effort. Successful wealth management transformation efforts require a clear understanding of business goals, careful planning and execution, and effective change management and communication.
To ensure successful wealth management transformation programs, business architecture can help create a structural blueprint for a shared understanding between all stakeholders. Wealth Management Business Capabilities can capture the essence of what the business does structurally and foundationally.

What are Business Capabilities?
Business Capabilities describe “What” a business does. Business capabilities are the foundational building blocks in business architecture as they are the solid components and stable entities to model a company.
What is the value of a Business Capabilities Model?
- A well-structured business capability model aligns business and technology.
- A company-wide capabilities matrix provides a common language that bridges the traditional gap between business and IT teams.
- A granular capability model (not too high level) allows for mapping to technology components to understand the functional sufficiency and footprint of applications to meet business needs.
- A company-wide capabilities assessment concerning strategic importance, underlying process maturity, adequacy of resourcing, and level of technology enablement paints a vivid picture of the state of the enterprise.
- Requirements backlog anchored to a capability helps companies focus on capability evolution, not siloed project execution.
- Using capabilities as Lego blocks, business owners and product managers can communicate their needs better to allow for optimal technology enablement.
- A detailed capabilities list with logical clusters of related functionality helps vendor evaluation and selection.
- A capability view helps you identify conflicts, overlaps, and redundancies and zero in on the weak areas to develop a roadmap to evolve the capabilities.
Will a generic business capabilities map fit our unique needs?
CIOPages.com business capability maps aim to meet or beat a threshold of 75-80% relevance. However, there is always that 20-25% that may need to be modified and customized to capture the unique essence of your enterprise. Also, having a pre-built capability reference model helps in a) not missing out on the core and distinct business capabilities and b) spending 80% of your time on the 20% of the capabilities that make you who you are!
But I’ve seen this entire Capability Map depicted as a few boxes. Why so many Capabilities?
The problem with some of the mickey-mouse capability maps is that they are too high level and are nothing more than a few boxes and arrows that can become Wall Art.
For a capability to link strategy to execution and to bring about functional enablement at a feature/function level, a well-structured and deeply-decomposed business capability map is essential.
Managing hundreds of capabilities – writing capability profiles, assessing the capabilities, conducting a gap analysis between the desired state and current state of company capabilities, and anchoring backlog items to capabilities – is a complex task.
Can you help us customize the business capabilities model to our enterprise needs?
We are glad you asked! Yes, of course. Our domain and functional experts can contribute by taking these sample business capabilities models and customizing them to your needs.
The work will be fast, efficient, and practical with a full-fledged capability reference model as an accelerator.

Why should I pay?
The domain knowledge and intellect that went into constructing the capability models are very high. The cost is less than 3 hours of the time of a low-priced consultant. Or perhaps the price of pizza lunch for the team to brainstorm and whiteboard the enterprise business capabilities model.
Consider the ROI: B) The hours of work a pre-built capability map will save your team instead of working on it from scratch. B) The time saved due to the straw model covering 75-80% of your needs. And c) focusing on what makes you unique rather than working on the entire list of corporate capabilities.
