Financial advisors are more than mere trade executers for their clients. Their role begins with building a network and establishing relationships with their clients to decipher their unique and specific financial needs, be it individuals or organizations.
An advisor needs to be knowledgeable and insightful to dole out advice that is tailor-made for every client. This requires in-depth knowledge, both about the client and financial instruments at large.
Financial advisors spend most of their valuable time on backend activities, leaving them with little time to interact with their clients and almost no time to research on swift product developments that occur in the market today.
The vast variety of financial instruments and the lack of an Omni-channel platform makes it impossible for the IFAs to have comprehensive knowledge about the multitude of financial products that float in the market.
Today, advisors are dependent on isolated websites and platforms that offer information and historical data about products but are specific to a single brand. This complicates the advisor’s hunt for information across instruments, brands, and sites for a fitting comparison of financial products.
Yes, there are training sessions organized by manufacturers, unfortunately, these bits of training are aimed at product promotions done solely by the manufacturer or brand, which are most certainly biased.
Advisors also depend on other sources of information and insights. They network through chat groups like telegram; they are associated with fellow advisors and product manufacturers on social media groups and even look up to friends and peer groups for recommendations and updates.
Though these conventional sources may have its unique advantages, they cannot match the strength that today’s tech-based Robo-advisory brings with it. It is high-time financial advisory evolves from traditional techniques to the modern methods.
