“Financial services at the highest levels are in shakeup mode, which is a good thing if you are a millionaire or an entrepreneur in the wealth management space.” – Drew Hendricks, Inc.

At FourStar Wealth Advisors, our goal is to invest the full life cycle of an investor, to help them live a full and complete life. We do this using our unique “Build. Live. Share.” approach to wealth management: We assist our clients, at all phases of life, to BUILD a strong life by best efforts and practices at managing resources, to LIVE and enjoy those resources, and to SHARE those resources as they desire once they no longer need them.

Just as life’s journey takes one through many different changes and phases, so too does the investing and wealth management landscape change over the years. Sometimes these shifts are gradual, other times abrupt. Sometimes progress occurs and recedes in cycles; in other cases, a landmark change can be lasting and influential for generations.

As a Wealth Advisory firm on the forefront of the industry, we have observed that now is a period of significant change and growth for the fields of wealth management and financial planning. We are all heading toward a new future – one that presents remarkable opportunities for investors and advisors alike.

For instance, consider that:

1.) More people need wealth management and financial planning services.

By 2021, an estimated 18 million Americans will be worth seven figures or more, according to data from Inc. At the same time, this group is skewing younger. As Forbes notes, the next few years could see “quite possibly the largest generational wealth transfer in human history,” as baby boomers age and millennials inherit assets.

2.) Technology is changing client expectations.

Across all industries, and certainly in wealth advisory, automation and AI are on the rise, becoming more and more prevalent and important to the marketplace. In fact, some estimates project that automation will help advisors manage more than $1 trillion in total assets by 2020.  As a result of these and other technological innovations, clients expect processes to be faster and more streamlined, transactions to be more transparent, and advisors to be more available and responsive than ever before.

3.) The media landscape has changed.

Today, we all have powerful computers sitting not just on our desks, but in our pockets at all times. The rise of smartphones and social media is leading to huge shifts in the wealth advisory space. Clients are moving online to interact with their wealth advisors, especially early on in their journey, when it’s time to research firms, select advisors, and follow up on recommendations. Of this group, 35% conduct their interactions with advisors on some kind of mobile device; 30% of consumers are even open to working with an advisor remotely, using technology to connect with an advisor who does not live near them.

As for social media? According to statistics from PwC, roughly half of all ultra-high-net-worth people use Facebook regularly. As of 2017, the average adult spent roughly seven hours a week on social media, according to Fortune. And today, individuals are just as likely to watch an online video, listen to a podcast, or read a digital article as they are to open a newspaper or watch TV.

As the investing landscape changes, it’s important to ask: Are you working with a wealth advisory firm that is not just playing catch up, but staying ahead of the curve when it comes to innovation, client service, and technology?

The team at FourStar Wealth Advisors utilizes the latest technology and a broad range of investment solutions to ensure that each client has the proper tools and resources to put them in the best possible position for every stage of life’s journey.
