Frankfurt partner Michael Juenemann recently spoke on a webinar organised by DocuSign focusing on the Financial service providers in the digital transformation – use case at DWS.
As a digital pioneer, DWS has completely transformed the asset management process and eliminated lengthy paper processes with the use of e-signatures. Michael was joined by DocuSign Germany Account Executive Filip Nosty and DWS Vice President, Digital Offering Specialist Philipp Schäfer, who demonstrated the advantages of using simple, qualified e-signature offers in Germany.
The aim of the webinar was to provide international companies with the information to go fully digital and minimize legal risks. DocuSign’s easy to use transaction platform lets companies send, sign and manage legally binding documents securely in the cloud. As the COVID-19 pandemic has forced the financial and insurance sectors moving to digitize their manual processes for asset management, portfolio opening, order placement, and other daily transactions, a new normal of working remotely has set in operating with cloud-based document workflows and e-signatures. The outdated, exhausting, and time-consuming paper processes are vulnerable to human mistakes, costly expenses and paper chaos. During the pandemic companies tend to invest the most in video identification and e-signature operators.
Michael gave a brief insight on the legal validity of an e-signature. The webinar got off to a great start, with an interesting Q&A by the participants, especially on the legal validity between various countries.
