TOUGH LOVE FROM T3 PRODUCER, JOEL BRUCKENSTEIN
As an industry thought leader and long-time producer of the T3 conference, Bruckenstein singles out five key trends he said investment advice professionals need to follow, such as the development and application of Artificial Intelligence in wealth management, and provides practical tips on how they can adapt to them.
“Any advisor technology is ultimately just a tool – none can solve practice management challenges for advisors on their own,” Bruckenstein says. “They work when advisory firms to put them to use well. And that involves a lot of planning, due diligence, time and money, patience, training and retraining, and sometimes having to learn a new way of doing business too. Advisor technology is changing wealth management. But the ever-expanding categories in our annual advisor technology survey – CRMs, financial planning software, onboarding and the like – are all built to ultimately help firms help people. If you can do it better, smarter and help even more clients,” Bruckenstein argues, “you should be open to that sort of change.”
