AI-powered asset intelligence platform reduces time-to-market from seven days to a few hours
The client is a next generation asset intelligence company that works with banks, asset managers and other financial services. The client provides AI-powered customized insights into investment opportunities based on customer transactions, risk-taking ability, circumstances, inferred preferences, portfolio mix, equity performance data and market signals. The client’s vision is to place as much insight into the hands of investors as asset advisors. To do this, the client wanted to develop an AI platform that provides investors and advisors with access to customized institutional-grade research across multiple asset classes while adhering to compliance requirements.
Given the client’s goals, it was necessary to acquire a complete and flawless understanding of the customer’s needs and preferences. For this, Mindtree engaged with the client’s users to develop an AI-powered solution. Simultaneously, a quant model using investment algorithms was built into a third party cognitive platform to deliver market research and insights. An orchestration platform to manage containerized models and APIs to support auto scaling, rolling updates, rollbacks, etc., was put in place. A Single Thread Delivery Framework was used to accelerate speed-to-market and ensure seamless delivery. Ease-of-use and customer experience were improved via a mobile interface, social login and Alexa that were integrated into the solution.
Mindtree’s expertise in AI and its deep domain experience helped craft a cost-effective solution for personalized wealth advisories and reduced time-to-market. By coaxing personalized insight out of customer and financial data using AI, the client created a significant differentiator. The solution was also aligned with regulatory requirements while delivering maximized returns from trading strategies
