Panacea Adviser has teamed up with ThoughtLeadership Live to produce a FREE ‘Bento for One’ webcast to support and educate advisers.
2013 is now a reality and very recent research is showing us that after getting the exams, many advisers are taking some time to review their business plan, their business goals and the business’s resource requirements.
For this month’s Bento for One, Derek Bradley, ceo of Panacea Adviser is joined by Roderic Rennison from consultancy, The Ideas Lab. Roderic will be sharing his insights into some of the challenges that intermediaries have been addressing in relation adviser charging and dealing with the new Regulator, the FCA, since the 31st December 2012, and his thoughts on how to address them.
This is an event not to be missed, so register today.
Nine months into the new world and we are seeing both advisers and providers looking for additional ways to develop new business and a value added services, in order to increase revenue streams.
A meeting with a life company can now costs an advisory business between £100-£250 per hour. If providers are only looking for product sales then there is little value added by them.
In this webinar, Richard Leeson, CEO at Adviser Advocate, will be sharing his views into some of the challenges facing the market. In particular how both advisers and intermediaries are challenged by changes in provider behaviour. There are unforeseen consequences of RDR that have yet to surface that will have a profound effect on traditional business relationships.

Failure is not a single, cataclysmic event. People do not fail overnight. Failure is the inevitable result of an accumulation of poor thinking and poor choices. To put it more simply, failure is nothing more than a few errors in judgment repeated every day.
This webinar can help you develop the right habits for long term success.

We have been able to generate detailed insights into adviser business planning and segmentation strategies for 2013 and from this pilot study this forthcoming webinar provides some interesting and highly valuable feedback around the following questions:
•What does adviser business planning activity look like at the end of 2012?
•What proportion of adviser firms have actively segmenting their client base and what parameters have they used?
•To what extents are advisers hoping to offer differentiated service propositions to meet investor needs?
•What will these differentiated service propositions look like?
•What client loses are they expecting, through either segmentation activities of client preference?
•What charging structures do they favour?
•How will investors react to adviser charging in 2013?
•Most importantly, what do advisers require from providers in 2013?

Q. What do you get when you take a commission-free world, stir in pensions freedoms, automatic enrolment, FAMR, some digital disruptors and now LISAs to the mix? [Pause for breath].
A. We can’t find anyone who has worked out the answer to that riddle.
These days, most people at least agree that the starting point has to be the customer. Using data from our website, YouGov, non-financial customer-facing businesses and financial providers, Boring Money will be discussing its first Census report. This report will provide unique insights into British savers and investors and can hopefully help answer that riddle. Or at least make a prediction.

Through a combination of in-depth research, collation of existing data, reference to case studies and analysis of regulatory pronouncements, the FCA’s own report published in December 2014 could not find any consumer benefit in RDR but still it continues to roll towards the removal of trail commission in 2016.
Amazing but is it true?
Panacea Adviser has teamed up with ‘ThoughtLeadership Live’ and Garry Heath to produce a FREE ‘Bento for One’ webcast to support and educate advisers on the results of the latest Heath Report.
The Heath Report and Panacea Adviser ran a survey at the end of 2014 and beginning of 2015, to understand many of the unintended consequences of RDR and to both inform regarding ongoing regulatory developments and identify what improvements can be made to regulator accountability.
The adviser’s first job is to challenge the client to start protecting and investing. The price of RDR’s commission free world is the removal of that challenge from the common man and with it any independence from the state when in need.
This is RDR’s true dichotomy.
As the Hendrix song goes: "There must be some kind of way out of here, said the joker to the thief”.
This webcast looks at lessons to be learnt from RDR and will be presented by Derek Bradley, CEO, Panacea Adviser and Garry Heath of The Heath Report who will run through the survey findings looking at unintended consumer detriment, destruction of adviser business values, adviser losses, which firms are likely to be affected and see if there ACTUALLY is a way out of here?

We each represent 1 in 3 billion+ internet users, a population that represents around 40% of the world’s entire population.
Online fraud continues to increase on ‘the same curve’ with no small part of this attributable to the interception of email and its sometimes sensitive content.
Email volumes continue to grow exponentially with over 182 billion currently sent every day.
The UK government is getting serious about cyber-crime - Keeping the UK safe in cyberspace policy and looking to the professional services sector to lead on the subject.
“Trusted professionals …… are on the front line of cyber-attacks – they are privy to sensitive information (e.g. client lists, personal information, sensitive commercial information about upcoming deals) which might be attractive to criminals/others. They are also well-placed to encourage their clients to take appropriate actions to protect themselves.”
Failure to address this subject can carry significant consequences - the regulators, Law Society / FCA / ICO, take a dim view on those who choose to gamble with their clients most precious of assets, ‘their data / identity’.
It’s estimated that more than 1 in 12 of us might be the subject of fraud whilst winning the lottery carries a probability of 1 in 14 million – or putting it another way
. . . . you are probably a million times more likely to be defrauded than you are to win the lottery !
Panacea and Mailock explore what steps you can take to help address this growing issue, convey value on your clients by offering them a secure communication service - www.BESecureMail.com - that others might neglect to mention and build the all-important trust so fundamental to conducting your business.
In this webcast, Martin Grimwood, Director at specialist research agency GfK, provides findings from our last RDR survey, exploring how adviser firms are adapting their business models.
This includes looking at the developing role of restricted advice, confidence in the future and reliance on trial commission.

Following on from our successful Social Media even in June, Panacea Adviser has teamed up with ThoughtLeadership Live and Sammedia to produce a FREE ‘Bento for One’ webcast to support and educate advisers on Social Media.
Increasingly we are all managing certain aspects of our lives on the internet; from socialising, shopping, seeking professional services to generally interacting. However the financial services industry is slow to capitalise on these changing trends.
This webinar will look at the evidence of digital behaviours amongst baby boomers, generation X clients and the millenials and how they wish to interact with their wealth managers of the future.
We will explore how usage of digital forms of communication is highest amongst higher net worth individuals and some examples of innovation in financial services, which unsurprisingly attempts to disintermediate the adviser.
Finally, we will summarise what advisers can be doing to take their advice proposition online in ways which supports the value they currently bring.
The webcast ‘Changing investor behaviours in a digital world’ will be given by Derek Bradley, CEO, Panacea Adviser and Sim Sangha, Business Development Director, Sammedia Limited.
