The Future of Your Business

 

The Future of Your Business – Is There Light at the End of the Tunnel??

 

The unprecedented events and market movements of the past several years have quite literally upended a financial services industry already reeling from the bursting of the tech bubble and the resultant regulatory onslaught.  Additionally, we believe we have entered an era of public distrust in our industry and in the competency of those who regulate us.

We at PICI believe that we have entered a new investment era as well.  Some call this a structural bear market, others use other terms, however, in any event the present and foreseeable financial environments will probably not allow the laz affair attitudes and practices of the past several decades.  Terms such as "dollar cost averaging" or "indexing", etc., will probably not be greatly utilized.  Until quite recently, the market environment for the past two and one half decades has been very "forgiving", and has created much complacency.

Please believe us when we tell you that your client does not want to hear the old tired cliché, "Mr. Jones, in 2008  your portfolio declined by 26% while the S&P 500 lost 38.24%.

Even prior to recent market and other events, the investing public is beginning to perceive “sameness” in financial products, services and indeed in advisors themselves.  Not actually a bad call when you really think about it.  After all, what is actually the difference between two large mutual fund families or between average Reps at two large wire house firms?   Some view these events with despair, but indeed they represent multiple opportunities for those willing to work to take advantage of them.  Opportunities for recruiting both clients and other brokers for your operations.  For those who “add value and service” to a client relationship, who are willing to create proper plans, to properly diversify client portfolios, and to show clients products others either do not have or do not understand, the light at the end of the tunnel is indeed a bright future,

   for others it is probably a train.
