Event Theme – Client First, Products Next !

One of the best ways for financial advisors to thrive in new environment is to adopt the Client First, Products Next approach. This is easier said than done. Most advisors have started their career in this field as product sellers/agents/distributors and many are trying to evolve from a product seller to a solutions provider. Adopting a Client First approach might require one to adopt robust processes for product recommendations, acquire specific knowledge and skills & charge fees to clients. This may also require one to register and adhere to RIA (Registered Investment Advisor) regulations by the capital markets regulator.

Network FP National 2017 will bring to the delegates many of the existing successful practitioners as speakers and panellists to unearth the existing problems faced, discover opportunities, analyse impact of Direct, Digital and Disclosures for advisors, regulatory advocacy required, and find practical & economically feasible ways for existing agents/distributors to transition into RIAs. NFP National 2017 will try and answer many of these questions which are emerging in the new environment. Check Out Schedule
