The business of financial advice is set for disruption. Technology offers new ways to engage clients, but it’s also presenting the means to replace many traditional advisor roles. Meanwhile, Baby boomers, Gen X, and the Millennials are more educated, more tech-savvy, and more demanding than any previous generation. Perhaps most importantly, extended longevity, combined with the expectation to live longer and better, is driving clients to demand more from financial advice. In particular, consumers now want financial advice to identify what they may confront in middle age and as older adults and offer advice accordingly. This talk will cover the evolving context of old age and offer a client focused framework to understand what may be considered advisor value by clients across the generations. Ultimately, we will explore together the advisor value proposition by examining three questions that predict future quality of life.
