Our Latest Study: The Shifting Economics of Adviser Technology

Financial technology has been slow to adopt the free software model that drives much of the digital world. Utilities that you use every day – email, document clouds, social networks – are completely free. Why should the digital tools required to run your practice be any different?

We’ve dug deep into these shifting economics and uncovered how advisers can reduce their overhead to pull ahead of the pack.

Our latest study – The Shifting Economics of Adviser Technology – takes a look at the evolution of free software in wealth management, and covers topics including:

  • Why the industry is slow to catch up on the free software model.
  • What areas advisers can cut on technology costs without reducing their services.
  • Where the new economic model of free software impacts investors’ bottom line.
  • How OranjMAX can be used at no-cost, and what free really means.

Harnessing the Power of the Influencer to Drive Growth

How you can woo not only your client but the influencers behind them.

I recently purchased a condo. Although I consider myself an independent person, I have an entourage of what I consider to be “personal advisors.” Throughout this purchasing decision, I relied heavily on these personal advisors for guidance. Since I am a stereotypical parent-loving Millennial, Mom and Dad are co-presidents of this imaginary advisory board. As my realtor took me from place to place, she seemed unaware of this personal advisor phenomenon. When I would return from showings my parents would bombard me with questions about the mortgage, the inspection, the property tax, etc. Although my realtor spoke in broad terms with me about these topics, she left out specifics.

The realtor lost my business because she didn’t take into consideration that my parents are influencers in my decision-making.Continue Reading…
