With the rise of the digital age, changing consumer preferences, and the overall growth of the industry, we’re beginning to feel the pressures that come with an evolving market. In order to stay prevalent in the industry, it’s important to acknowledge our challenges and then navigate those roadblocks to work toward acquiring a better business, better clients, and more revenue. Here are the 2 biggest challenges for financial advisors, and how we can begin to navigate around them.
1. Time Management
Time is something that we never seem to have enough of. Between the onboarding process, managing portfolio allocations, and prospecting, it can seem like everything you learned about time-management in your business operations has gone down the drain. Thankfully, new technologies, like Benjamin, can help streamline your more administrative tasks so those of us in a time-bind can regain control of our operations.
2. Your Value Prop
As advisors, one of our biggest pain points is defining our value proposition. With the market as competitive as it is, we’re fretting about fee compressions and performances and how we’re going to distinguish ourselves from our competitors. To overcome this challenge, you need to understand what it is that you can bring your clients that others cannot, and then speak that value prop into all that you do. Do you utilize a technology that enhances the client-advisor relationship? Or do you have some type of industry experience that allows you to make insightful portfolio allocations from the get-go? Whatever it may be, bring that to the table.
When it comes down to it, every advisor’s top 2 challenges are going to vary, but what stays constant through it all is the role that implementing new technologies can play in overcoming obstacles that can prevent you from scaling your business.
