Quilter has added four new digital signature providers to its catalogue based on requests from financial advisers.
The wealth manager now recognises eleven providers, with Alphatrust, docSAFE, MyDocSafe and Rsign the latest ones added to the list.
Quilter’s commercial and propositions director, David Tiller said given the digital transformation experienced in recent years, digital signatures allow advisers to conduct business in a quick and secure manner that keeps pace with other developments.
“We maintain constant contact with advisers to understand how we can best support them and their business both now and in the future, and we know they value flexibility of digital signature providers, which now play a vital role in their processes,” Tiller said.
He added: “It is important we continue to make strides to help with [advisers’] propositions while ensuring client data and documents become ever more secure.”
The firm said all the digital signature software suppliers will be recognised across Quilter’s platform and Quilter Cheviot to ensure UK financial advisers are able to quickly and consistently carry out client instructions regardless of the Quilter business they are interacting with.
Advisers will be able to manage signature processes using a web browser or mobile device and will be given proof of signing using a secure process, along with an audit trail and a final document.
Quilter was recently named a ‘digital process champion’ in Next Wealth’s Adviser Tech Stack Report and was recognised for making the largest improvement in document submission digitalisation in the past year.
