Don’t Let the Disruptors Get You


In the last several years a new term has infiltrated the lexicon: Disruptor. Disruptors, in this context, are companies such as Uber, Lyft, Expedia, Amazon, and others that have disrupted the traditional way of doing business, and consequently created new industries and jobs. The firms that did not adapt, think Blockbuster for example, were deemed irrelevant and fell by the wayside. As you can guess, the financial services industry is not immune to this trend of adaptation.

What Is Holistic Planning?


The phrase “holistic planning” or “life planning” has become more widespread throughout our industry in recent years. By definition, holistic means that the whole is more than merely the sum of its parts. As it relates to our industry, the term refers to a financial professional, either on their own or with the help of others that specialize in a specific area, who helps to address a client’s life goals, not just selling a product to fill one specific need. The term “planning” in a financial services context is typically reserved for investment advisor representatives, however, here it refers to the strategy rather than the act of giving investment advice for a fee.
