We see FinTech innovation as essential to expanding the market for financial planning in this space. Better tech makes advisors more efficient and empowers them to actually deliver a better value proposition to their clients through that efficiency and innovation.

The advisor does a better job, gives better advice, and provides a better client experience. At the end of the day, we all win.
