The Future of Your Business

 

 

The Future (Maybe) of Your Business

 

    

 

Some financial service industry experts believe the industry has reached a major crossroad and that the bloodletting has already begun.  For the first time in over fifteen years, we have seen a decline in the number of registered financial professionals and, perhaps, this is just the beginning.  Perhaps, the light at the end of the tunnel is actually a train.  Please consider that in Great Britain a bit more than ten years ago, there were about 300,000 licensed financial professionals, while today there are a mere 44,000!  Why did this happen?  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?  Additionally, Great Britain has already undergone complete market and fee transparency, an event which is in progress in this country.  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.
