For wealth managers, the pace and competitive nature of the industry demand mastery over a range of skills and technologies. On one hand, you have to manage your current client relationships, and on the other, focus on growing your base — both of which mean meeting clients wherever they are. That’s why it’s essential to employ technologies that help you be as productive while on the road, as you are in the office.
Engaging effectively with these prospects and clients means you must develop superb communications strategies and techniques. Of course, you also need to be current with financial products, earnings-per-share data, market data, regulations and trends.
These client demands, combined with the rise of remote and hybrid work, make having mobile devices that can serve your needs wherever you are, more important than ever. Financial employees value access to technology that makes hybrid and remote models more seamless and productive — and nearly 7 in 10 say they’re ready to jump ship to get it, according to Samsung research.
Time is of the essence. If you’re regularly pulling up real-time reports, charts, and market and portfolio data, you need to have robust processing power, a convenient form factor and flexibility to work wherever you need to. In other words, you need tools to provide timely, powerful access from any location — tools like the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold4 foldable mobile device or Galaxy Tab S8 tablet.
The Galaxy Z Fold4 and Tab S8 solutions
The Galaxy Z Fold4 is the most advanced foldable yet, enabling mobile productivity like you never thought possible. The Fold4’s 7.6-inch, expansive display and multi-window experience, along with the portability of a phone and optional S Pen, all combine to create the ultimate mobile phone for business.
The Galaxy Tab S8 lineup of tablets combines PC-like performance with innovative multitasking features that make for a powerful productivity tool, whether on the go or at a desk connecting to a monitor. You can use the Galaxy Tab S8, S8+ or S8 Ultra with the touch interface or the included S Pen.
Here’s what a typical day might look like as you use your Galaxy Z Fold4 or Tab S8 in the field and the office:
Starting your day
Start the day with your Galaxy Z Fold4 to catch up on headlines during your train commute. With the S Pen, you can circle key points, make notes on news articles and items of interest, and then push them to team members via email on the way into the office.
Maybe one of your colleagues even wants to jump on a quick video call. With a traditional smartphone, this can be a challenge while on the go: It’s tricky to take notes and hold your phone at the same time. But with the unique, foldable form factor of Z Fold4, you can simply place the device in Flex Mode, and keep one hand free for note-taking right on the same device. With the optional S Pen, you can handwrite notes directly on the lower half of the screen in Samsung Notes, while keeping the video visible on the top half.
Galaxy Z Fold4 makes all this multitasking easy with Multi-Active Windows and personalized app pairings in the Edge Panel. Now, it’s even easier to split your screen simply by swiping from left to right with two fingers to open a second window. For example, check your calendar while emailing, or message someone while reviewing a PowerPoint presentation. Working while in transit is so much easier when you don’t have to toggle back and forth between apps.
Arriving at the office
You meet with team members to discuss the day’s ideas, strategies and schedule. To get ready for client meetings, you use your Tab S8 with an attached keyboard to draft detailed plans, update presentations and track market movements. The device can also be used for any other number of tasks that may come up on any typical morning in the office — such as taking client video calls while monitoring key financial indicators, answering a few more emails and reviewing analyst notes.
While presenting to a client at a local restaurant using your Tab S8, you talk through several products and visualize potential outcomes with a personalized strategy. You use the S Pen to accentuate key points. Able to see the data in a clear way, even while meeting outside of the office, the client comes away impressed and schedules a follow-up meeting. On your way back to the office, you monitor U.S. equity markets and forward recap notes to your team using your Fold4.
On both Z Fold4 and Tab S8, you’re running Android apps and have all the security and flexibility of Samsung’s Knox security and device management platform, built into the devices from the chip-level up.
Afternoon in the office
Back at the office, you multitask with analytics applications, spreadsheets and email using Samsung DeX, a mobile-powered computing platform that allows you to use your Galaxy device to power a complete desktop experience. Samsung DeX lets you use any Tab S8 device as both a tablet and a desktop PC by connecting it to a monitor, keyboard and mouse (via USB-C, HDMI cable or wirelessly connecting to a Miracast-enabled display).
What's next for the future of finance?
You can also use DeX by connecting your Tab S8 device to the book cover keyboard, turning it into a powerful laptop-like solution. The built-in DeX button on the keyboard cover makes it easy to jump right into your work.
News events can create turmoil in the markets and potential volatility in some of your clients’ portfolios. While riding to the restaurant in traffic, you open your Z Fold4 to address emails, answer messages and collect real-time analysis. You assess the sell-off as an overreaction and perceive a buying opportunity. The client is impressed by presenting the most up-to-date information and requests more information. Heading home, you use your Tab S8 to write a summary report, answer emails and set a reminder to share this info with your colleagues.
Equipping yourself with Galaxy Z Fold4 and Tab S8 can help you, as a wealth manager, handle every challenge that comes your way.
With remote and hybrid work on the rise, having an effective work setup wherever you may be logging in from has never been more important. Laptops might be the primary office companion for some, but tablets offer a new world of features for those looking to tackle productivity outside the office.
For both devices, the ability to take notes, underline key points, mark up articles on the fly and share them with a few taps is a game-changer, thanks to the S Pen.
Working with Z Fold4 and Tab S8 on the go and in the office adds up to more productivity and optimized efficiency for wealth managers who desire an edge over the competition.
