This is an interesting development - that said, these companies should be looking from the bottom up (not top down) in designing products/services. Design for the consumer, then the full stack (advisor, custodian, etc.) can access at various touch-points along the way. If the product re-imagines "advice" for the consumer, it will be adopted by the full stack.
