In our discussions with many financial planners across the Industry we continue to see critical areas of business operations that drive success in Practices. The common threads of success show up continually.
Key examples that we observe at Futuro include:
- Principals maximising their time on high value clients and referrers
- Leveraging their staff structure
- Across costs to serve with an appropriate fee model
- Maximising technology
- Prepared to adapt to a changing environment
It is interesting that Owners who are prepared to implement change stand out. Their thinking is not stuck in the past. They are willing to accept that they do not have to come up with all of the good ideas to drive the business forward. They most often participate in a community of financial planners who are willing to talk about their business and share ideas.
In many cases they utilise the services of an experienced Industry participant in a “Board of Advice “ or coaching type relationship.
