DOL Fiduciary Rule

Would a fee-based or advisory model be optimal for you?

At this time, you might be considering transitioning a portion (or all) of your business to a fee-based or advisory model. With step-by-step guidance, this module will help you think through the implications, evaluate your book and identify best-suited clients to put the switch into motion.

Do your clients trust you and understand your value?

The answer to this question may be more important now than ever. Clients who trust you are vital to the health of your business, and your value proposition is their reason to believe. It’s critical that you provide them with a clear and genuine account of the many ways in which you serve them. Keep in mind that the client experience can be as essential as investment performance. This module guides you through articulating your value and offers real-life examples from your peers.
