Historically regulatory barriers have restricted accounting firms from proactively collaborating with wealth management specialists and as a result, clients have been getting fragmented advice. It’s our belief that by removing these divisions, you can integrate your services and offer guidance that is more customized to client’s personal circumstances.
Study after study concludes that the more integrated your services, the stronger your relationships become. This translates into increased revenue streams, long-term clients and the position of ‘most trusted advisor’
The accountable support program puts our people on your team, so you can deliver this level of advice without being limited by regulation, and without having to carry out these additional services yourself.
With your client at the centre of the relationship, our in-house professionals combine your expertise with theirs in order to integrate each client’s affairs into a cohesive Wealth Action Plan™. Our process benefits from a clear structure and communication that ensures integration is seamless and well-coordinated. Together, we are one team of experts for your clients.
