In a sea of advisor rankings offered by such well known media outlets including Barron's, CNBC and Financial Times as well as a variety of trade publications, commonalities appear. However, the paths that each have taken to get there are unique. While past performance is not always indicative of future results in investing, enduring strong businesses are suggestive of strong insight and practices. Barron's Managing Director, Sterling Shea, assembles some of the country's most recognized financial advisors, Grant Rawdin (Wescott Financial Advisory Group), Steve Lockshin (Convergent), and Brent Brodeski (Savant Capital Management) to discuss what the future holds for their businesses.

Corey Kupfer (Hamburger Law Firm) will sit down with Lenny Chang (Co-Founder and Managing Director of Focus Financial Partners), Elizabeth Nezvold (Managing Partner of Silver Lane Advisors), and Dan Seivert ( CEO and Managing Partner of Echelon Partners), to discuss the levers available and mindset required to get deals consummated for investment advisers. Whether it’s inorganic growth, implementation of a succession plan, a business combination, or an outright purchase/sale, all present challenges that each of these panelists have helped numerous advisers overcome.
Why should the strategic acquirers have all the fun?
Raising capital is important to your business too- but it’s no secret that access to it is more difficult. Traditional banks don’t (generally) understand the advisory business and private lenders and investors are more cautious and have upped their standards- and the cost of their capital. What are the options?
The panel, moderated by Paul Lally of Gladstone Associates will discuss current market trends in capital sourcing and present two options for access. Joining Paul will be Phil Green, CFO of Brinker Capital, a $17.5 Billion RIA who strategically deploys capital to advisory firms to fund acquisitions and Steve Smits, General Manager of Live Oak Bank, a leading provider of business loans to independent business people in niche industries.

Post-crash, clients expect and need financial brands to "speak human." This means firms need to take a fresh look at the role of "voice" in content-marketing efforts.

In this podcast we'll explore easy strategies to help financial brands create more authentic communications.
