October 22, 2019 By: Honor Randall

Implementing fee increases can be a considerable challenge for financial advisors. However, since the cost of doing business rises every year, it is important that you also get your clients in the habit of paying an additional percentage each year. Plus, it is a lot easier on your clients to accept an annual increase of 3%, rather than a 15% increase five years down the road.

How Electronic Signatures Can Improve Your Efficiency (Even More Than You Might Think)

March 28, 2019 By: Lucy Robeson, CFP®

Many advisors have already adopted electronic document signature tools for their practice to some degree, and this has been a huge win for accuracy and convenience when it comes to processing agreements.
