“As we were considering ways to better serve our clients, with a focus on empowering them to live their best possible life, we had initially considered developing our own client engagement tool in-house. When we discovered Lumiant’s digital platform, which focuses on assisting advisers to allow them to have more meaningful, values-based conversations with their clients, we realized we were looking at the future of our business and the industry. We are subsequently proud to lend our financial backing and look forward to partnering with Lumiant to empower more families around the world to live their best possible life.”
