Why This is Important to You

Margins are thin, competition fierce. The opportunity for growth, never so great and never so important.

Maybe you drank the Kool-Aid and believe you are the best solution. There’s nothing wrong with that, in fact that passion and confidence is part of what makes you successful. But, are all of your solutions the best? How do you know?

And what about your clients? How do they perceive you and what value do really add? Can you really be all things to all people with such thin margins?

Let’s not forget about Compliance. Government’s the new wildcard and it appears the ante is going to be steep, stretching those margins even thinner.

We know there is a lot more to it than just payout; but how do advisors discern between firms that offers “great service” and “great technology”.
