We are excited to announce our latest feature, Foundations, designed to revolutionize the way you work with Lumiant. Foundations is a stripped-back version of our Governance survey, allowing high-level data capture that all feeds back to Governance. Foundations is a powerful tool that will allow you to choose either a Short or Long survey option, helping to accelerate what you need and allowing you to achieve flexibility in the Client’s Onboarding and Fact Finding process. 

Key Features

  • Control the Prospect’s experience so the Advisor is not overwhelming the client with information that is not necessary
  • The Client feels like the Advisor is only asking for what is necessary for future meetings
  • Select the amount of information the Advisor wants Prospect to fill out via Short or Long Survey
  • Have any data feed the Governance Module so the Advisor can expand on it during the strategy meeting or as the advice experience progresses
    • The Advisor can then fill out the finer details required for the financial plan during their time with the client or
    • The Advisor can send the Governance survey in between the discovery & strategy meetings so the client can expand on the already collected detail without having to re-visit old ground
  • Client will feel comfortable giving the right amount of information
  • The financial details collected via the Foundations survey will help to identify if a client is the right for the Advisor or someone else in the business
  • Email notification will be sent to Advisor when a Prospect finishes the survey


Lumiant's new feature, Foundations, transforms client-advisor interactions. It allows clients to share essential financial details upfront, ensuring advisors have relevant information to make meetings truly beneficial. Clients can provide basic information initially, making the process comfortable, especially if they are uncertain about proceeding. During meetings, clients witness their data being meaningfully utilized, enhancing the overall experience. Importantly, if more information is needed, clients are spared the hassle of repeating their story or entering data twice, streamlining communication. Foundations revolutionizes financial consultations, fostering personalized, efficient, and client-centric interactions.
