I had the opportunity to attend this session and I found it a highly valuable tool as an industry technology provider.

The value perspectives given were given from the view point of the advisor. And I really appreciated that for the most part there was a minimal degree of stumping for one’s platform.

Having served in many technology venues throughout the years I have to say that the finserv industry stands alone in my experience.
To be sure there is fierce competition, but there is a high degree of trust – earned trust that compels comments like Ron Carson’s regarding Eric Clarke – “I trust him”.

Trust is everything. Whether it’s between an advisors and providers, service provider to provider, custodian to custodian. Trust is infectious and the clients we serve sense that.
