Improving the Client Experience: Best Practices in Advisor Tech

Daniel Tripp, CFP, Associate Financial Planner
Redwood Grove Wealth Management LLC

Jesse Pence, CFP, Partner, Wealth Manager
Waypoint Wealth Partners

Thank You to Our Meeting Strategic Partner!


Program Description:
You can't live with it, and you can't live without it. In today's business landscape, technology is integral to success. The field is ever evolving, with new software platforms rising and others stagnating. The advent of AI has prompted our industry to assess its potential and threats, reminiscent of the attention and concern surrounding the rise of robo-advisors.

Any firm neglecting regular evaluations and optimizations of its tech stack and new software offerings is likely to struggle to stay relevant in the coming decades.

Join us in a panel discussion with local RIA firms to explore how they leverage technology to enhance business efficiency and improve the client experience. We will delve into these advisors' beliefs regarding AI and its impact on our industry. Additionally, we'll examine the new technologies these firms have recently evaluated or adopted, and the reasons behind their choices. Gain insights into these firms' tech stacks and any anticipated changes for the future.

Following the discussion, continue your conversation with peers during a holiday networking event. (see below)
