Another significant benefit of this service is it will reduce the days receivable from invoiced accounts significantly. RIAs aren't staffed with bill collectors..

hmmm, wonder what PayPal knows that Kitces and Alan don't....also, all this talk about fee's on vehicles and then $600 + 1.5% of assets just to collect payment doesn't sit well at all. Will have to think about this.

I would have to agree with what Michael Moore said on this one.

Alan Moore is the No. 2 busiest man in the RIA business and he just convinced the No. 1 busiest man to budget $200,000 to hire a 'rockstar' to replace him

Alan Moore is CEO of both XY Planning Network and AdvicePay -- and he has three young kids; Michael Kitces agreed to let him hire a full-time replacement CEO for AdvicePay -- with some giant reqirements for the new exec.

Alan Moore can't catch a break; AdvicePay CEO exits after seven months, adding job he hoped to escape back on top of XYPN role; search on for new AdvicePay president

The job will be step below CEO, and new hire must have affinity for both touchy-feely culture and aggressive growth in Montana's wide open expanses
