How Top Advisors Use Technology Today

It’s a given that in our tech-reliant 21st-century financial advisory firms, we need technology to work more efficiently and to provide the best service to our clients. Not only that, but clients these days expect financial advisors to provide some sort of technology so they can communicate, track accounts, and see their progress toward their goals. But with more technology choices than we know what to do with, how do you choose the right tools with the most bang for the buck? Learn from the example of top advisors. Here’s how they use technology to grow their firm and retain clients.

The Pros And Cons Of Going Independent

Making a career shift is not a decision to take lightly. It requires plenty of research and considering the pros and cons involved in such a shift. According to the Holmes-Rahe Life Stress Inventory, making a major business readjustment is more stressful than changing to a different line of work entirely. (1) And switching from a wirehouse to an independent advisor model is definitely a major business readjustment! We want to take some of the stress out of the decision by giving you a well-researched and thought-out pro/con list to help you make this important decision.

Do Clients Care More About Investment Returns Or Service?

It’s a question every advisor faces. What do clients want? Where should advisors invest their time, money, and energy to get the greatest growth and retention? Unfortunately, this question is tricky because while clients come to you for help with investment management and financial planning, they likely stay with you because of your outstanding service. Simply put, service and returns go hand-in-hand. Your clients care about both, and you should too.

In all our years serving clients and supporting financial advisors, we know what clients want. And we’ve found a solution to the challenges of delivering what they want.

Back To School: How To Grow Your AUM From The Ground Up

How do independent financial advisors earn an income? Usually, it’s by charging a set fee for their services or a percentage of their clients’ assets under management (AUM). That’s great if you have an established client base with continuous referrals coming in, but what if you’re just starting out? How can you grow your assets under management from the ground up? Here are some ideas.

How Does Your Independence Benefit Your Clients?

Freedom from quotas, potentially larger payouts, control over how you run your business. These are just a few of the many benefits that going independent offers to an advisor. But what about your clients? How does your independence as a financial advisor benefit them and their money? Here are a few things to highlight to your prospective clients to show them the value you bring to the table.

What Motivates People To Hire An Advisor?

You chose to work in this field, so of course you see the incredible value of having an organized, strategically planned financial life. And, most likely, you became a financial advisor so you could help people take control of their money and reach their goals. But not everyone thinks hiring a financial advisor is necessary, as 75% of Americans manage their own money. (1)

When you are out prospecting for new clients, it helps to understand their motivations, to figure out why they aren’t currently working with an advisor and what would push them to make that kind of commitment. By knowing what motivates people to hire an advisor, you can then meet them where they are, speak to their concerns, and stay top-of-mind until they are ready to take the next step. 

1. Retirement And Other Milestones

It should be no surprise that the number-one reason people hire a financial advisor is so they can get help with retirement. (2) After all, it’s one of life’s most significant milestones, and lack of preparation can make or break those all-important golden years. Next to retirement, people tend to seek out an advisor when they are facing a divorce or the death of a family member.

What do these three life events have in common? They are all major milestones that can either throw a wrench in your well-laid plans or cause stress and uncertainty. Anytime you experience a transition in life, whether it’s changing careers, sending your kids off to college, moving, or saying goodbye to your working days, there are countless decisions to be made and strategies to take. Many people feel insecure about which options are best for their situation and turn to a professional to help them align their decisions with their long-term plan and set up safeguards to protect their finances when life changes. 

2. They’ve Reached The Limit Of What They Can Do On Their Own

We have apps, software, and Google at our fingertips, providing us with more information than ever before. But sometimes you just don’t know what you don’t know. For example, you might find general rules of thumb for how much to contribute to your 401(k), but those guidelines don’t tell you if that prescribed amount will help you prioritize your ideal retirement. 

Many people reach a point where they’ve done all they can for their financial management, but they aren’t sure if they are missing something or if they are still on track. They need a specialist who can tailor their next steps to their unique life. 

Clients who are motivated by a need for a specialist want a lifelong financial partner who provides education, personalized service, professional advice, and ongoing guidance as they encounter new challenges and opportunities. They want someone to help them feel empowered to make informed decisions and walk out their life with confidence. 

3. They Don’t Want To Deal With Money

Managing money is stressful. No matter how much you have, money leads the race as the number-one cause of stress among Americans. (3) And instead of facing this stressful task head-on, our human nature often leads us to avoid the cause of stress at all costs. (4) As you know, that only leads to more problems. That’s why people look to a professional to carry this burden for them. They know their financial life is too important to ignore, so they place the details in your capable hands. 

Aside from stress, many people hire an advisor because they just don’t have the time to manage the complexities of their financial life. Staying up to date on the stock market, tax laws, and retirement plan limits can quickly become a full-time job, and since our society runs at a faster pace than ever, your prospective clients want someone who specializes in this area to take care of it for them so they can focus on what’s most important in their life. 

How To Be There When They Need You

Okay, so you know the core motivations that push someone to seek out the advice of a financial advisor, but how can you ensure you are the financial advisor they choose?

Deepen Your Current Client Relationships

Referrals tend to be one of the biggest sources of growth for financial advisory firms, (5) and one study found that 50% of investors have referred their advisor. (6) If you’ve created trusted, long-term relationships with your current clients, focusing on their needs, providing exceptional service, and increasing their confidence, you can bet that they’ll pass on your information when a friend shares their money woes. 

Maximize Your Niche

There’s a lot of competition out there for financial advisors. What you need is a niche clientele and a specialization that sets you apart. That way, when someone searches for “financial advisor for corporate executives in [your city],” your name shows up. Set yourself up as the go-to person for a specific group of people or a specific financial concern, and you’ll be the one those people turn to.

Do Your Branding Due Diligence

We live in a digital world and rely heavily on technology to help us gather information and make decisions. Statistics show that more than 70-80% of people research a company online before committing to buy a product or service. How much more important is it to research someone with whom you will entrust your money than someone who will pressure-wash your driveway? 

Make sure you have a solid online presence through a user-friendly, easy-to-find website that clearly portrays your brand and message. Then be where the people are, connecting with people through social media accounts and providing timely, relevant content so they can’t ignore you or the value you provide! 

Get The Growth You Want

There are many people in need of what you provide, but the steps between setting up your firm and increasing your client base can seem overwhelming. At Freedom Wealth Alliance, we set you up to succeed, helping you with technology, best practice services, and marketing, just to name a few.

How Can You Make It Easier For Prospects To Get Started?

When you are growing your business, it may feel like following leads and prospecting potential clients is all you do. You work hard to build relationships, share the value of your services, and then celebrate when you gain a new client. But what then? How do you set the stage for a successful, fruitful long-term relationship with your new client? 

You need an onboarding process that introduces and welcomes your new client to your firm and makes it simple for them to partner with you to manage their financial life. How you handle these fragile few weeks communicates to them how much they can trust you, how much you care about them as a person, and how much you respect their time and energy. Here are some ways to make the onboarding process seamless and stress-free by offering a top-notch, client-focused onboarding process.

1. Set Clear Service Expectations

Whether they are communicated or not, every partnership involves expectations that both parties bring to the table. And since everyone has different definitions of what makes great service, not setting clear expectations could lead to a lot of disappointment or frustration.

Therefore, the key to a successful relationship is a clearly laid-out service standard that brings everyone together on the same page, reflecting the expectations of everyone involved. Consider creating a client service standards document that covers what the client can expect from you. Here are a few questions to get started: 

  • How often will you be in touch with the client?
  • What information can they expect to receive from you? Regularly scheduled content? Personalized reports? 
  • Through what mediums can the client reach you? 
  • How quickly will you respond to clients’ phone calls or emails?
  • Who on the team will be working with the client, and in what way?
  • What is your investment philosophy, and how do you handle risk?
  • What can the client expect when they meet with you?

Encourage your client to ask plenty of questions and start building a strong foundation of trust and transparency. 

2. Build Trust Through Transparency

This probably won’t surprise anyone, but trust is the main reason clients choose one advisor over another. (1) Since trust is built over time, you can’t expect your new client to have complete faith in you from the start. You obviously conveyed your trustworthiness in the prospecting process or they wouldn’t have agreed to work with you, but you need to continue to build that trust through each step of the process going forward.

The best way to do this is by demonstrating a commitment to transparency. Don’t leave your client wondering if you’re holding something back or stretching the truth. If they have a question you are unsure about, be honest, then tell them you will find an answer and get back to them. Have an open dialogue about what you do, how you do it, and how much experience and knowledge you have. Share openly about your firm, introducing other team members and explaining what they do and who you can contact for different issues. 

Simply put, you can’t overemphasize trust in the onboarding process. Make it easier for your clients to trust you by starting out on the right foot. 

3. Make The Most Of Technology

Our whole life has integrated technology, from making appointments online to sharing calendars to paying bills. It really does seem like there is an app for everything. Because of that, clients expect their advisors to offer user-friendly technology to help them communicate, monitor their accounts, and streamline their financial life. 

Adopting technology to simplify workflows and increase efficiency can facilitate your relationship and build trust. If your clients are busy professionals who travel, providing video conferencing technology increases convenience and lets the client know you are willing to be flexible to accommodate them. An online account portal allows clients to stay on top of their money without constantly contacting you. Providing robust resources on your website shows your clients that you are dedicated to providing education and improving the quality of their life. Digitizing documents cuts down on paperwork and allows clients to sign documents without the hassle of faxing or coming into the office.

Trust us, your clients will appreciate your intentional use of technology to make their lives easier. 

4. Have A Robust Online Presence

These days, if a company doesn’t have an online presence with a consistent and easily recognizable brand, they can seem to lack credibility. Did you know that 81% of consumers research a product or company online before taking the next step? (2) Not only are your website and social media accounts a prime way to share your mission and personality so clients can determine if you are the right fit, but they are also a prime way to communicate with prospects and existing clients.

I don’t know about you, but if I have a question about something, I’d rather visit an FAQ page or read a company’s blog post instead of making an appointment or even a phone call. Offering free resources, relevant blog content, and sharing appropriate personal details, like community involvement and charitable causes you support, can help your prospect feel like they know you before they do business with you. Instead of a blind date, their first contact with you comes with solid background information. 

Besides, one of the keys to marketing to prospects and retaining clients is to be where they are. It’s likely the majority of your niche is online and frequenting social media sites, so you should be there in a big way too. Don’t make your client work too hard to find you—be where they want you to be. 

It’s Worth It

At Freedom Wealth Alliance, we believe in the power of expertly designed best practices, workflow, and process implementation for distinguishing your firm from the rest. We know you care deeply about your clients and the services you offer, so why not communicate that passion to your new clients by offering them an onboarding process that is second to none? 

If it seems overwhelming, we can help. Not only do we provide state-of-the-art technology, on-site portfolio management, and an advisory meeting program that deepens your client relationships, but we support you in every aspect of your business, every step of the way.

Why Do Clients Really Choose An Advisor?

With over 200,000 financial advisors across the country, clients have no lack of choices for who will help them manage their money. (1) But not every advisor is the same. The financial advisor clients choose can have a significant impact on their investment strategy, the fees they pay, and the confidence they have in their financial future. It’s not a decision they take lightly.

As a financial advisor yourself, do you know what these clients are looking for when they come to you? Here are some factors that clients take into consideration when choosing an advisor and how you can leverage them to build your business.

1. A New Level Of Service

Gone are the days when clients just wanted to sign up for a product and walk away. Consumers today want personal service that goes beyond their bank account. They want someone who takes the time to get to know them and offers something more than a cookie-cutter solution. And regulators have taken notice of this, handing out fines to advisors who don’t act in their clients’ best interest. (2)

At Freedom Wealth Alliance, we know that the number-one thing clients want from their advisors is that they listen to them and understand their needs. (3) That’s why we are aggressively redefining client service. Not only do we free you up from the many administrative duties that take time away from your clients, like compliance, on-site investment management, workflows, and technology, we also optimize your client meetings with our Advisor Meeting Program (A.M.P.©).

We know you entered this business because you want to make a difference in your clients’ lives. We give you a top-notch service model that helps you do just that.

2. Transparency And Trust

Thanks to the endless information on the internet and the many headlines about fraud and ethics issues, consumers are much more educated about the differences between the types of advisors, particularly the fiduciary standards for an RIA versus the commission-based stockbrokers of the 90s.

And since only 49% of Americans think that financial advisors are trustworthy, they aren’t going to hand over the reins of their financial life to just anyone. (4) Expect them to do their research on you, looking into your credentials, experience, fee structure, and code of ethics.

3. The Right Fit

More than fancy strategies and flashy products, consumers want a long-term relationship with the person managing their money. That’s why they search for someone who they not only get along with and are comfortable with, but whose passions align with theirs and whose philosophies they agree with.

That’s why referrals from friends and family are a key way for people to find an advisor they like. It’s best practice for advisors to replicate their favorite clientele through referrals and networking through hobbies and interests. Not only does this form of marketing work, but it’s fun too!

If you want to attract the right clients to your business, it’s time to redefine your ideal client and build your business accordingly. Our “pay to prune” program helps you hold onto your best clients and let go of the ones who are not a good fit, maximizing your time and energy. We handle your marketing and even purchase and service the clients you would like to let go of. Everyone benefits from the right fit.

4. A Load Off Their Back

Think about the daily lives of your clients. They have demanding jobs, families to care for, communities to serve, and the list goes on. They turn to an advisor so they can offload some of the financial stress in their lives. They want someone with knowledge and experience—someone they trust—to handle their money so they don’t have to. That doesn’t mean they don’t take their money seriously; they just want a partner to help them stay on track so they can enjoy their lives.

At Freedom Wealth Alliance, we know you want that too, not just for them, but also for yourself. As you carry your clients’ financial burdens, we carry your business burdens through our unparalleled suite of services, such as portfolio management, risk analysis software, workshops to educate your clients, client appreciation events, and the list goes on! You give freedom and peace of mind to your clients, and we give freedom and peace of mind to you.

5. Comprehensive Wealth Management

Financial planning is more than just saving for retirement. The financial landscape has become increasingly complex, with clients now having to deal with health insurance, taxes, estate planning, business ownership, etc. Each of these areas affects other aspects of their financial life, which means the slightest mistake or oversight in one area can cost them.

Does that mean you need to offer every single one of these services? No, but it does mean that you are up against a lot of competition from others in the industry. We help you through the complexities by providing the expertise your clients need access to so you can act as their quarterback, making sure all the elements of their financial life work together.

Don’t Do Your Own Heart Surgery

If we could sum up the purpose and mission of Freedom Wealth Alliance and every service we offer in one sentence, it would be this: You don’t have to do this alone. You became an independent advisor because you have a passion for putting your clients first and taking the financial burden off their back. Don’t you want to focus on that instead of all the other tasks that compete for your attention?

Think of it this way: when was the last time you heard of a family member, friend, or anyone other than a trained doctor perform heart surgery? Instead, the patient goes to the person who specializes in the problem and has been trained to take care of the issue with efficiency and precision. Think of Freedom Wealth Alliance as your heart surgeon. We handle multiple parts of your business so you can focus on your specialty.

Advisor Meetings Done For You

Your face-to-face time with your clients is critical to building a long-lasting relationship and to the growth of your business. But because time is a limited commodity, you might find yourself conducting meetings with little preparation, not optimizing the opportunity to connect with your clients. We’ve solved this problem for you through the Advisory Meeting Program. With one click, you can take care of the whole meeting process, including communicating with the client and preparing materials. Not only will you feel more confident and prepared, but your clients will also appreciate your professionalism and respect for their time.

State-Of-The-Art Tools And Technology

Technology often equals headaches. It is a necessary evil. But what if you could delegate the management of your tools and technology to someone so you can harness their advantages without wasting precious time on the administrative side? We provide the necessary tools to help your business thrive, ones that are normally reserved for top advisors and large firms. We pride ourselves on the advanced technology we use to benefit our advisors, investing in the best tools to do our jobs effectively from anywhere in the world.

On-Site Portfolio Management

Why do your clients come to you? They need help with their finances. They don’t want to invest on their own and want you to manage their portfolio for you. But at the same time, they don’t want a one-size-fits-all investment model. They have unique goals, risk tolerance, time horizon, and life situation, and they want their asset allocation to reflect that. Freedom Wealth Alliance offers a solution in the form of over 40 models of investment management based on 4 distinct themes of money management: low-cost ETF models, value-based models, flexible risk models that change with market conditions, and specialty models for clients who want a custom approach. Our structure saves you time and money because we do the heavy lifting, and all in a more affordable format than you will find anywhere else.

A Variety Of Options To Fit Your Stage Of Life

Are you just starting out as an independent advisor or already nearing retirement? You will have different needs depending on where you are in the business cycle. If you are looking for growth, we can help you buy assets, build branches, or prune your book of business to focus on your most productive relationships. If you are ready to transition out of your business, we provide three succession options to fit where you’re at in the process. We have all your bases covered, regardless of your season of life.

Multiple Ways To Affiliate

Do you want to build your own brand or does that sound exhausting? We believe in choice, so we have created multiple affiliation options that make it easy for you to work with us. You can choose to operate under our brand, your own brand, as an employee, or as an independent advisor. Either way, we walk with you through the whole process, taking care of the details so you can focus on what you love.

Partnering With Someone Who Cares

Everything Freedom Wealth Alliance offer stems from our passion to help you. You can’t put a price on the importance of having the support of a boutique firm that truly cares about you and your clients. Don’t do this alone. Learn more about our firm and its unique advantages by visiting www.explorefreedomwealthalliance.com. You can also email us at krozman@freedomwealthalliance.com or call Kurt Rozman at 262-798-7979.

The Many Faces Of Succession

If you’re like more than 50% of active financial advisors, you plan to scale back your work or retire fully within the next decade. (1) But that’s easier said than done, especially without a plan. Of those who are nearing retirement, 28% admit that they don’t have a concrete succession plan in place and are unsure about what they want the transition to look like. (2) With a decision this significant, it’s understandable to feel paralyzed or indecisive, but the future of your business is too important for you to ignore.

Unfortunately, independent financial advisors often have two things working against them when it comes to succession planning: lack of time and lack of options. You spend your days building your business and taking care of your clients’ futures and haven’t thought about your own or had the margin to map it out. Or, you know you want to start moving into the next phase of life, but you aren’t sure if you’re ready to completely let go of your business.

Freedom Wealth Alliance solves both of these problems for you with our three distinct turnkey succession options for you, your clients, and your team—and our guaranteed support every step of the way.

Option 1: Go Hybrid

What is it you love about your work? Interacting with clients? Creating strategies that bring results? Oftentimes, the day-to-day burdens of running a business interfere with the work you enjoy. Our hybrid RIA option gives you the freedom to run your business through an affiliation with us and prepare for an eventual and smooth transition out of the business.

In your working years, we help you take care of non-productive tasks like technology management, compliance, and marketing. And when you’re ready to move out of the business, we provide you with a built-in continuity plan and all the tools you need, including messaging for your clients and workflows to ensure the business transitions with as few hiccups as possible. This option is ideal if you want to spend your final working years focusing on what’s most important to you.

Option 2: Linger Longer

No matter how much you love your work, you may be ready to spend more time with family or start chasing your personal goals. When you run your own business, transitioning to part-time work may feel like a pipe dream. There are just not enough hours in the day to take care of all your tasks and cutting back feels impossible.

This desire to keep working while also seeking flexibility and a more sustainable work/life balance is becoming more and more popular. That’s why we love our Linger Longer model, a valuation-based acquisition plan coupled with a part-time semi-retirement. Working two to three days a week, or just a few hours a day, from anywhere, with no responsibility for technology, management duties, or paying the firm’s bills, you can ease out of your career while still holding onto the aspects of your business that you love and the personal relationships that provide satisfaction and fulfillment in your life. While it may sound like it, we make sure it’s not too good to be true!

Think of it this way: when you sell your practice and remain on board, everyone wins. We keep an experienced advisor, and your best clients continue to receive your great advice. You deserve to finally simplify your life, gain personal flexibility, and more time to pursue your passions.

Option 3: Continuity Insurance

Many advisors struggle with the thought of someone else taking over their business and client relationships because of how emotionally attached they are. There’s no doubt that this is a hard transition, but would it make it easier if you had a team with great ethics, a track record of successful transitions, and which didn’t demand you or your staff to leave? That’s what we do.

We will serve as your business successors when you want to retire and/or if something unforeseen happens in your life. In our best-of-both-worlds approach, we help you develop the continuity plan that you and your clients deserve and avoid the disasters that can occur when financial advisors die without a plan in place for their families, staff, and clients.

What’s Your Plan?

Succession planning is critical for ensuring a smooth transition and an organized transfer of ownership. Let us at Freedom Wealth Alliance help you continue the legacy of your business and retire the way you want, when you want.
