Interesting angle - outsourcing the planning to independent 3rd parties; but these services aren't quite where they need to be yet IMO. But they're on the right path - just still a bit crude. My vision is more sophisticated software backend, coupled with the "paraplanner" who acts as the advisor. Software needs to be proactive - ie) pointing out things that should be addressed over time. Anyways, RightCapital - you're getting warmer...
