CURRENT CONTEXT

The difficult times brought on by the COVID-19 Pandemic call for resolve and determination. Although relationship managers yearn to get back to the world of in-person meetings, current conditions restrict travel and personal contact. Reliance on virtual meeting platforms is a necessity. The richness, depth and nuance of interpersonal contact may be lost, but the current approach also has benefits: more frequent client contact and across the board savings from the reduction of travel time and expense.

How can we engage clients and inspire them to act using the new media? What practices gained during the period do we want to retain for the long haul? What practices do we want to resume? What activities are best handled by Client Relationship Managers going forward? What is best automated? How do online dashboards and workstations need to evolve to meet client needs in the new environment?

MORE THAN A MEETING

The action plan leading to the meeting included two activities with the ultimate goal of creating a "United Nations" of Client Relationship Management Leadership in the Retirement Plans business.

Joint Video Conference with the Strategic Account Management Roundtable.

The Joint Session in Congress spurred ideas, proposed solutions, and advanced the production of the video created at the behest of the Strategic Account Management Roundtable to help explain how advances in Artificial Intelligence, Automation, and Robotics will change service models and the demands on Account Managers going forward. This joint session took place Tuesday February 11, 2020.

Refresh of the Client Relationship Management Leadership Sentiment Survey

The Client Relationship Management Leadership Sentiment Survey measures attitudes of heads of client relationship management across recordkeeping firms (attendees and non-attendees), identifying emerging key issues.  The survey consisting in part of open-end questions was designed with input from a steering committee of Roundtable members and co-presented by members of the Steering Committee at the Roundtable meeting.  A tangible report documented our collective read, insights and most-striking take-aways, identifying best and aspirational practices in client relationship management leadership. 

The 2020 Annual meeting of the Client Relationship Management Leadership Roundtable will consist of five 90-minute video web conferences:

  • 8-1/2 total hours of collaboration
  • Stimulating experience, including polling, chatting, and audio and visual content

MEETING OBJECTIVES

Forum for Chief Client Relationship Management Officers of retirement plan firms to discuss emerging industry trends, major challenges and opportunities, current and upcoming governmental regulations and other topics of interest to attendees. Informal discussions are organized around topics suggested in the initial online meeting of potential attendees.

Join us for a robust dialogue on the emerging retirement plan service landscape.  Major retirement plan recordkeepers attend regularly.  Insights will be broken up based on your interests (Hot Topics), and by asset-size, providing focused, relevant dialogue on how to thrive and differentiate amid the changes.

On the 26th meeting of the Roundtable, we will utilize our time to draft a charter for the Roundtable

  • What issues and concerns we are determined to solve
  • What aims we are resolved to reach through our combined efforts

At fun and productive sessions at each meeting – we will collaborate on designing a marketing initiative, a series of social media posts articulating the value of superior retirement plan service.  By value, we mean the quantifiable business benefits clients reap from procuring superior retirement plan service. The stimuli are designed to motivate clients to act.
