Robo-Advisors

  • How can we gain the efficiencies of a robo-advisor but keep our current service model?
  • Craig: you can engage with a Turnkey Asset Management Provider (TAMP) such as FolioDynamix*. You can outsource allof your services to them, including investment management, portfolio construction, new account opening, rebalancing, performance reporting and billing. You keep your face-to-face client relationships, but gain scalability in your business.
  • What is the Riskalyze Check-in Service?
  • Craig: this is an outsourced service where each month, Riskalyze sends an email questionnaire your clients, asking them how they feel about the markets and about their financial future. They click a Positive or Negative button to answer both questions. This is a tool to keep in touch with your clients and create an additional line of communication with them.

Social Media

Social Media: Content is King

  • Should we use a content management tool like Vestorly?
  • Craig: These tools are useful for adviors who are more into DIY since they require hands-on management and configuration. However, since you are relying on an algorithm, sometimes weird articles get through the filters.
  • Ezra Group offers content creation service that can deliver blog posts, industry articles and white papers to help drive traffic and can be used as calls to action.
