Good advice is based on the collection and understanding of our client’s facts. Who is involved and important, the entities they support, and the financial decisions that have been made to date. Collecting this data has to be easy and intuitive and Asset-Map | Discovery and Stencil tools allow Professionals to fact-find incredibly well.
Something happens when you create a picture of the facts. We are trained to understand the relationship and ask questions about what we don’t understand. Visuals also help us explain why certain relationships exist. In financial advice, Asset-Map is used to gain a better comprehension of the facts and gain insight to elevate the current condition.
What's wrong with this picture? Applying our knowledge, expertise and experience to an existing Asset-Map with all the relevant facts is fast and informative. Putting our eyes on a client's financial world is critical for providing proactive guidance.
Target-Maps help advisors determine the level of funding a client has toward the most pressing goals and concerns. By focusing on the actions required to fully fund, advisors can help a client understand the actions that will promote addressing the priorities and ongoing progress.
When professionals see something out of place we have the expectation to provide guidance. Bringing new ideas to the table by using Asset-Map and Target-Maps is easy and fast.
Something unexpected happens when we review facts in a visual frame on one page- a map. Relationships between people and facts become clear and new questions arise.
