1. What are the biggest issues facing financial planners today?

Successful wealth management firms have a well-defined value proposition that makes them unique. These firms are challenged to construct their practice in a way that maximizes the time spent demonstrating this value. As clients redefine what they desire from their advisors, the firms that have a well-delineated, systematic and repeatable process to deliver this value consistently and efficiently will be the winners. These firms will effectively leverage resource providers, each with their own specific strengths, to address the changing needs of clients and the integration of new professionals into their practices, spurring future growth.

2. What are you doing to help them?
