If you are looking to strengthen client relationships and reinforce brand values, permitting clients access to RightCapital's client portal is a proven path toward success. Best of all, it’s built into your RightCapital subscription already!
Once a client's plan has been established in RightCapital, you can invite the client to view and interact with financial tools. At any point, you can invite or remove your clients to access their portal and control which modules o the software are visible. Use the following process to invite clients to access their financial portal and mobile app:
Navigate to your Advisor Portal and select the client’s name in the client
Select the Client Access tab on the right.
Enter email addresses for client and/or spouse. Click the Invite button to automatically send the client(s) an email inviting them to create their account. The email will have a link to create their account - all they need to do is enter a password of their choosing and click on Create Account.
Navigate to the Planning Access tab to control what planning modules the client(s) will have access to.
Alternatively, save time by allowing clients to enter their own information. Virtually onboarding clients is a great way to quickly and easily collect data. Whether the client has access to their client portal after the data entry is completed is completely up to each advisor.
Click on the blue + Add a New Client button.
Enter the client's first name, Last name, and email address.
Click on the blue Invite Client to Input Information. The client will receive your customized email invitation. After they create their RightCapital login, they can start the data entry!
When inviting clients to access their portal, you have the option to view the custom interface that you've created for each user. The client access mode allows you to visualize the client portal based on the sections that the client can see.
To view the "Client Access Mode" visit the Advisor Portal > Select the client > click Client Access Tab > choose "Client Access Mode from the "Open Client" dropdown menu.
When the plan is opened in "Client Access Mode":
You can still update information regardless of what the action item permissions are selected.
The live chat support feature is hidden, as to not distract from presentations.
The Settings icon will display information associated with the advisor's access so that you can make changes as needed.
This can be used to present financial plans during in-person meetings or to gain a better understanding of what the client has access to in their customized portal.
Use the Advisor Portal > RightIntel > Activities tab to see any changes clients make to the Profile, as well as keep track of when they access the system.
Grow Your Business
Client retention is key to long-term success, and RightCapital is committed to your growth!

RightCapital provides talking points that highlight how a financial portal can improve your clients' lives. When clients understand the benefits of their portal, they have higher rates of acceptance, allowing you to do more planning in less time. Use the talking points below to add value during conversations that introduce clients to their financial portal.
With the client portal, clients can check their finances on the go. They can breathe a sigh of relief when the market fluctuates and their long-term goals are still funded. 24/7 access decreases panicked calls to your office and allows you to coach your clients on what they should look for in their financial picture.
Using the client portal enables your clients to put all their finances under one roof. Seeing their funded accounts alongside the probability of success, and cash flow projection helps you gain the big picture view, even on assets held away.
If your client wants to go deep into their finances, great. However, if they want to know their Probability of Success or if they have enough cash in their emergency fund, that’s right on the dashboard with easy access. It’s simple to use, easy to access, and one of the first things they’ll see when accessing their portal.
An often overlooked benefit of the client portal is the collaboration it reinforces between the client and yourself. The client portal provides a solution to confusing interactions where arbitrary numbers are gathered from different sources. When using the client portal, you are both on the same page, looking at the same data, making a coherent and agreed-upon decision.
Many advisors have raved about the client portal app as it reaches a broader set of their client base, engaging clients through the day and week as they check in on their finances from the comfort of their smartphone. The app presents all the client portal information in a way that is even easier to engage on the go.
Seamless communication between you and the client. Need something done? Create a task for yourself or your client. Client need something from you? They can create a task for you to complete. Tasks are funneled through the client portal and tracked by the advisor. They can send push notifications to the mobile app or email to notify the client of your objectives. Additionally, many advisors use tasks so their clients can visualize/quantify all the work they do for them!
Files are often exchanged over email. They got lost, deleted, or it becomes difficult to know which file is the most up-to-date.
You and your and clients can upload files for each other to access. For instance, you could create a task for them to upload important files (tax returns, pay stubs, account info) for you to process on your schedule.
