News, Vision & Voice for the Advisory Community


Funded to the teeth by RIAs, Michael Kitces and Alan Moore now have a second big play--modernizing plan payments--and broker-dealers are beating down the door

AdvicePay replaces paper checks and 60-day waits with ACH and credit card transactions for financial plans -- a concept validated by hundreds of their own XYPN advisors signing up

Alan Moore and Michael Kitces are building a better mouse trap and customers are beating a path to their door

I find enormous value in the services my CFP/RIA provides. That said, the thought that someone considers it reasonable to even suggest charging me based on my net worth or income scares the crap out of me. A 2%/20% is a better value proposition , as bad as that is. If a percent of AUM is not working for the advisor they may need to do what everyone else does without sufficient income: get a second job until a single full-time job can provide an adequate living. We all need to be careful of overestimating our own importance or the value we provide to our employer or customers. A happy client but disturbed observer.
