Talking To Clients About Terrorism

Amid the despair over the recent attacks in Paris and Mali, investors need guidance more than ever. If you are their trusted financial advisor, or aspire to be, then you should be telling your clients and other contacts what terrorism means to their money. That’s a tall order. What do you do? Silence Is Not Golden. You could send contacts links to articles in the press. That's easy and free, but it sends your contacts to a website other than yours. Plus, the...

Fritz Meyer Says The Wild Ride In Stocks Is Unlikely To End Anytime Soon; Tell Your Clients

The wild ride in stocks is likely caused by a structural change, economist Fritz Meyer said earlier this week, and it may not end anytime soon.   Meyer, an independent financial economist, says technical market issues are likely the cause of the extreme volatility experienced in recent weeks in stock prices. The loss of “specialists” on the New York Stock Exchange — market makers who used to be on the floor of the exchange and who would buy stocks oversold on emotional...

Do I Really Have To Use LinkedIn?

There were some really good comments and not one of them agreed with the author. The comment that stood out most and that I agree with 100% is that, while social media is often presented as marketing tactics, it does represent a fundamental shift in communications with clients and prospects moving forward. That part is not going to change.   The people now control how and when they will let you communicate with them. If you want to communicate with them, you have to go where they are; they...

Win A Free License To Camtasia Studio Video-Editing Software, The Easiest Way For Advisors To Produce Videos Regularly

Some of you are terrible on camera.   Recording your screen to display PowerPoint slides or PDF client financial planning reports while you narrate and record the audio is the best way...

I'm frustrated. I lost three long- term clients this year. I'm not used to losing clients. They all had the same reason for leaving: they thought their 2013 returns should have been higher.  I believe in the wisdom of diversification. I don't believe in market timing. Without a crystal ball, research has proven over and over again that sticking to a defined strategy is the way to go.  My team works hard at maintaining efficient asset allocations to produce maximum returns based...

Wasting Your Money

How do you spend your marketing dollars? If you are like most advisors, you probably spend a fair amount of money on current clients, with outlays for:

Segmenting Clients

Do you segment your clients? On one hand, I believe that all clients deserve our very best. After all, we are entrusted with their life savings. Yet, on the other hand, how can we help but notice differences in clients and then treat them differently? By segmenting clients, are we doing them a disservice or are we customizing our services?

Is Preparing Tax Returns Worth It?

I'm a financial advisor. Ninety percent of my revenue comes from investment management. The other ten percent is split between financial planning fees and tax return preparation. For the last six weeks, I've been working day and night. Is it really worth it to prepare tax returns?
