Research has shown that high-net-worth clients receiving financial planning from their primary wealth management advisor are nearly twice as likely to invest new assets with the firm as those who receive no planning. Not surprisingly, over two thirds of wealth management firms surveyed have indicated that they plan to make significant investments in their financial planning capabilities. The challenges many firms face however, are determining which technology vendor will best align with a firm’s business model and goals, and what features are most important.
