Broker-Dealer of the Future II, Part Six: Demonstrate Stability and Longevity

Some broker-dealers used to proudly tout their friendly compliance policies. Now the world has changed--and advisors are far more concerned about the risk to their reputations and stability.

Longevity is perhaps the most underappreciated advantage of working with a broker-dealer. However, as the crisis of 2008 and 2009 demonstrated, it should be considered carefully by both individual investors and financial advisors. To be successful in organic growth and recruiting, the Broker- Dealer of the Future must make a strong statement about its own stability as an organization and its dedication to its strategy.

Stunning Transformation Six explores:

  • Safety for Consumers Through Custody and Clearing
  • A Culture of Risk Management
  • Strategic Longevity as a Business Partner
