BDO Canada has launched an AI-powered solution for financial institutions and their customers – advising on challenges in budgeting, wealth management, and credit worthiness.

BDO unveiled the product last week at the Microsoft Executive AI Summit, where the accountancy walked attendees through an immersive simulation.

"Our AI solution aims to empower financial institutions by delivering a competitive advantage, enhancing customer satisfaction and driving growth and innovation,” said Rishan Lye, National Consulting Leader for BDO Canada. "We're dedicated to providing digital solutions that allow Canadians to invest in their future, while navigating the complexities of their finances."

The solution’s wealth management AI assistant supports customers on investment planning, including risk profile and portfolio breakdown, as well as on estate and retirement planning. The assistant also offers personalized financial advice.
