The Next Frontier Digest - February 2022

Your business may be the most valuable asset you own. It embodies your life’s work, the relationships you’ve cultivated, and the goals you’ve achieved. On a practical level, your business is also a significant financial resource.
Tapping the financial value of the asset you’ve built takes advance planning, which is easy to neglect when you’re still in the fray, running a thriving business. So how do you help clients navigate life’s transitions and pivots while also mapping out your own next chapter?
In this month’s Digest, we’re serving up insights that consider both the economic and emotional aspects of leveraging your firm’s value to support your unique personal vision.

The Next Frontier Digest - September 2021

As the school year gets into full swing, we’re reminded that a good education can give us a leg up in life. But formal education is only one way to learn, and to remain relevant in the 21st century, our learning years shouldn’t end when we receive our diplomas.
To survive and thrive in the evolving advice business, we need to be lifelong learners. No, I’m not talking about earning more CE credits. I’m talking about developing a “curiosity mindset” that allows for fresh thinking and new approaches that help us adapt to constant change.
The most successful financial advisors are always learning − drawing on skills and borrowing resources from the best in every field. So in this month’s Digest, we’re serving up insights that can help you challenge status quo thinking and gain new perspectives on what it means to productively navigate an industry in transition.

The Next Frontier Digest - August 2021

COVID-19 will likely reshape clients’ sentiments and expectations for generations to come. But one thing is for sure: Uncertainty, and the reality of accelerating – almost minute to minute – change, is opening the door for meaningful advice and guidance that expands beyond what we traditionally associate with financial services. While helping clients manage their financial resources is important, it’s not the only area where advice can make a profound difference. There’s a broader spectrum of issues clients are dealing with on a daily basis that can’t necessarily be solved by rebalancing a portfolio. So as a financial advisor, how do you go beyond the balance sheet to discover what matters most to clients and help them achieve it? In this month’s Digest, we’re serving up insights that can broaden your perspective on what it means to deliver value in the evolving advice business.

The Next Frontier Digest - July 2021

The fastest growing age group in the U.S. is people 65 and older, a trend that shows no signs of slowing as medical advances help us live longer, and in many cases, healthier lives. While living longer brings opportunities, it also raises questions. As clients approach what’s been traditionally viewed as retirement age, for example, how do they continue to feel relevant and live meaningful lives that can extend − in some cases − almost as long as their careers? As financial advisors, we should be at the center of issues like these … going beyond the balance sheet to help clients prepare mentally and emotionally for, what I like to call, “the third half of life.” Read on for more on this important topic.
