“prefer an advisor who has the ability to look at their whole financial situation, as opposed to an advisor who specializes in one area”
Pierre Bossaert, MS pfp, CFP®, QFP from Fiserv will join Briggs Matsko, CFP®, CRPC® and Jeff Maas CFP®, ChFC®, CRPC® to deliver the presentation. Matsko and Maas are CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNERS™ and co-founders of RSC, headquartered in Sacramento, Calif.
The joint presentation will reveal how financial professionals can produce higher quality service and advice, which is much-desired by investors across the nation. According to an August 2013 survey published by the Certified Financial Planner (CFP) Board of Standards, a nonprofit organization fostering professional standards in financial planning, a large majority of Americans now seek holistic financial planning and advice. The CFP Board finds that 70 percent of those surveyed “prefer an advisor who has the ability to look at their whole financial situation, as opposed to an advisor who specializes in one area,” such as investments.
“Advisor desktop technology yields high value and will be a top area of investment for wealth management firms in the next 12 months and beyond,” said Darrin Courtney, research director, CEB TowerGroup. ”There are already very strong solutions available in the market today, with technology providers such as Fiserv that have delivered on the current need and are continuing to move in the right strategic direction.”
“Fiserv recognizes that financial professionals must provide interactive, holistic financial advice as a means to increase client collaboration and the execution of their strategic investment plans,” said Cheryl Nash, president, Investment Services, Fiserv. “We are particularly energized about the sizable increases in profitability and productivity that are being recognized by our client firms and financial advisors across the wealth management industry after adopting our technology.”
Fiserv will also be offering complimentary consultations during FPA Experience 2013. Situated at Exhibition Booth #207 in the West Hall of Orange County Convention Center, Fiserv will share additional expertise and functional demonstrations of its technology, including Retirement Illustrator and AdvisorVision™, the financial planning solution ranked “Best-in-Class” by CEB TowerGroup in July 2013.
