In an era when people are questioning whether they even need a financial advisor, when automated investing services threaten to undermine the advisory business, and easy gains have lulled people to sleep, you and I will have stress test moments to prove ourselves – and our value - to our clients. How will we do? More specifically, how will YOU do?
When we consider what the advisory business actually is, a lot of thoughts come to mind. You have yours and I have mine. And while it’s unlikely to get two people to come to a perfect agreement on just about anything, I’d like to suggest that our business is primarily focused on helping our clients achieve their objectives. Simple enough, right? So, if that’s fundamentally true, why does it often seem so complicated to run a successful advisory business?
