Streamline your investment approach
A streamlined approach to managing your clients' portfolios can hep provide the clarity and context your clients need to invest with confidence. Learn more about our four-step process.

Be consistent to recapture time

On average, advisors spend over 40% of their time on investments and administrative tasks.1 Advisors who create bespoke portfolios likely spend more time while those who embrace models, whether their own or third-party, likely spend less. Consider the tradeoffs of different approaches to determine what is right for you and your clients:
Leveraging third-party models maximizes the time you have to focus on and increase the value of your business.
Customizing individual client portfolios allows you to retain more control over exposures and capital gains.
Picking individual investments requires more due diligence compared to ensuring suitability and appropriateness of third-party models.
Improve business efficiency
Think about your practice. Is it a well-oiled machine or a collection of various parts? An efficient, scalable business begins with you and your team. Clearly define each team member’s roles and responsibilities to foster accountability and improve business operations. Then, create scale through a well-defined client segmentation model.
