The mortgage club says the hub covers planning, mortgage sourcing, protection tech, and tools and firms to help protect and grow their businesses
Paradigm has launched an online technology hub bringing together a range of information and partnerships to aid advisers get the most out of the digital services available to them.
The mortgage club says the hub covers planning, reporting, back office and online presence, mortgage sourcing, protection tech, equity release, mortgage innovation, and tools and firms to help protect and grow their businesses.
The portal also looks at artificial intelligence — and covers information provided by the regulator, lenders and providers on artificial intelligence, its potential benefits and risks, how it might fit within advisers’ businesses, and how to adopt responsible and ethical practices when using the technology.
Additionally, the hub features a specific cybercrime support section, which includes articles, resources and commentary on how advisers and companies can help safeguard themselves and others against being victims of a cyber-attack.
Paradigm director of marketing and operations Riona Mulherin says: Through the hub, our aim is to deliver more technology-focused information and services to support our member firms and their advisers, eventually driving better outcomes for their clients.
We can also signpost users to our various technology partners, many of which we have negotiated preferred terms with, so companies can get the appropriate tech at the appropriate cost, Mulherin says.
Mulherin adds: At the same time, our relationship managers can work with companies, to look at their requirements in more detail, understand their needs and see what tech might make a real difference to their business.
Mulherin says: This is something they are highly experienced in doing, working closely with companies to make vital decisions on how technology can improve their business operations.
