"Advisors need to consolidate, communicate and customize. Creating the optimal digital client experience involves aggregating client data, communicating the value and usefulness of that information to the client, and making sure the delivery of that information is done in a way that suits the client’s needs and preferences. Taking these steps can close the digital divide."26 August 2020
"Advisors are missing an opportunity to appear at the fingertips of their clients and potential new clients. With 93% of individuals indicating they are engaged with social media at least weekly, it is surprising to see that only 25% of advisors said they interact with their clients via social media, 14% with webinars or recorded videos, and 12% with blog posts. Many advisors think that their 55-64 year-old clients are not using Internet for financial things – or not using the Internet much at all. But research in the initial Digital DNA report shows that the demographic spends on average more than five hours per day online."26 August 2020
