PeopleSoft Announces Enterprise Wealth Management
PeopleSoft® Client Manager Enables Financial Institutions to More Effectively Manage Customer Relationships and Assets

PeopleSoft, Inc. (Nasdaq: PSFT) today announced PeopleSoft® Enterprise Wealth Management, a new solution that enables financial institutions to increase customer retention and revenue through proactive client management. The new PeopleSoft Enterprise CRM solution includes four modules: PeopleSoft Client Manager, PeopleSoft Sales, PeopleSoft Portfolio Management, and PeopleSoft Strategic Account Planning. PeopleSoft Client Manager, the first module to be delivered, enables relationship managers, financial advisors, investment specialists, and private bankers to automate business activities and guide business decisions and customer interactions based upon a comprehensive understanding of the client.

Today, Financial Services institutions are targeting a new category of investor, the mass affluent, those with $100,000 to $1 million to invest. PeopleSoft Enterprise Wealth Management enables relationship managers to effectively service the growing number of mass affluent investors by utilising role-based technology that allows users to more effectively plan, create, manage, and track client goals, as well as identify opportunities to grow assets under management. PeopleSoft Client Manager incorporates the following industry-specific features such as:

- Client Summary: The Client Summary feature provides a holistic view of the client, including a relationship overview, contact summary, key product holdings or services, and additional opportunities or pipeline associated with the client.

- Relationship Summary: This feature provides a detailed account of all the relationships a client has by category (household, family business) and role (husband, wife, child, attorney) and includes powerful capabilities for creating and managing financial households.

- Referral Management: Referral Management maps out key client relationships enabling companies to understand customer value to the organisation. Additionally, referral management provides accurate sales tracking, analysis, and incentive compensation programs.

- Clients At Risk: This feature enables customers to identify clients who are at risk of withdrawing funds or investing with a competitor. As soon as at-risk clients are identified, relationship managers can develop interaction strategies that improve the relationship or re-engages clients.

- Client Holdings: The Client Holding feature shows the holdings of each account (stocks, bonds, mutual funds, etc) sorted by financial amount. It also provides the performance or overall profitability of the product holding.

“PeopleSoft Enterprise Wealth Management is the type of offering that can provide companies with a consolidated view of a client’s total value, along with analytical tools to assist financial institutions in better serving their most profitable customers,” said Cindy
Howton, a managing director with BearingPoint, Inc. (NYSE:BE), one of the world’s largest
business consulting and systems integration firms. “BearingPoint plans to team with PeopleSoft to implement CRM for Wealth Management to help increase customer retention and revenue through proactive client management.”

“As baby boomers move into their peak earning years, the number of affluent investors is growing,” said Steve Roop, vice president of marketing, PeopleSoft Enterprise CRM. “This trend is creating an opportunity for financial institutions to identify, acquire and retain a broader customer base to increase profits. PeopleSoft’s new wealth management solution provides an unprecedented scope of industry-specific functionality that enables financial firms to efficiently manage their client’s assets, provide personalised service, and tailor product and service recommendations to the needs of each customer. The net result is increased customer satisfaction, greater employee productivity and ultimately, increased profitability.”
PeopleSoft Enterprise Wealth Management is scheduled to be generally available in Q2, 2004.
