Salesforce Expands Its Financial Services Offerings with New Products for Corporate and Investment Banking
Salesforce (NYSE: CRM), the global leader in CRM, today announced Corporate and Investment Banking for Financial Services Cloud, new technology to help bankers and deal teams deepen their relationships with clients, manage deal interactions on one platform and compliantly collaborate and share sensitive information relevant to a deal.
As the pandemic made clear, industries need to innovate fast to stay relevant. Financial services is no exception; investment bankers need digital tools to drive efficiency, build and deepen relationships with customers, and win more deals. They also require a single view of large amounts of client data, integrated in one platform, to avoid mismanagement.
In addition, compliance officers are working in a banking landscape wrought with regulatory complexities, including managing sensitive information like material nonpublic information and assessing potential conflicts of interest. Banks can suffer reputation damage, business disruption, regulatory fines and revenue loss if sensitive information is mismanaged, conflicts of interest are not caught in time, or compliance is not securely maintained.
“Bankers are always looking for new ways to deepen relationships with prospective clients, but accessing the right information and insights to do so can be difficult, especially when they’re always on the go,” said Jujhar Singh, EVP and GM, Industries at Salesforce. “With Corporate and Investment Banking for Financial Services Cloud, we’re empowering customers with technology to manage these complexities, gain a full view of clients at every deal stage, and serve as the best possible advisors.”
