    #49: Heather Rhoades | Estate Planning

    Heather Rhoades is Chairman of Cummings & Lockwood’s Private Clients Group and is Partner in Charge of the West Hartford office.  She practices in the areas of estate planning, estate settlement, trust administration and charitable planning. I really love kind of the collaborative approach in general…I find that really the clients are best served when the entire team of advisors are on the same page, have shared information in advance…And many times I find that the RIA is actually the quarterback for the client because he or she ends up interacting and speaking with the client the most out of any advisor and really knows the client the best, the family situation, the client’s goals and worries.

    #48: Bill Loehning | Lessons Learned From Wirehouses

    #48: Bill Loehning | Lessons Learned From Wirehouses

    In this episode we are joined by Bill Loehning of Thornburg Investment Management who shares his experiences working with both wirehouses and independent advisors and things he has learned that may be helpful to registered investment advisors. William (Bill) Loehning is head of institutional advisor channel, focusing on registered investment advisors, family offices, and bank trust for Thornburg Investment Management. He has extensive experience working with all parts of the advisor community. Prior to joining Thornburg, Bill was a senior advisor consultant with Putnam Investments, focused on the Northeast. Before that, Bill served as a regional marketing director for The Hartford, covering the wirehouses in New England and as a regional representative for John Hancock for the independent channel in the Chicago area. I think that the strongest firms that we know and the firms that are excellent at what they do, they keep a great structure out there of firms that are like-minded. So, it’s sharing best practices, not being afraid to do that, and seeing how everybody can grow together. That’s something that we do on the asset management side quite often. Bill Loening, Thornburg Investment Management

Prior to founding AdvisorAssist in 2006, Chris was a co-founder and managing principal of MainStay Consulting Group, a strategy and compliance consulting firm serving investment advisors. The SEC did a really good job laying the framework to say, “Look, get out there and market yourself. The rules are now uniform, it’s simple. All advertising communication must be truthful, it must be accurate, and it can’t omit any material facts.” And the medium that it goes out on is not the issue.   Chris Winn, Founder, AdvisorAssist

    #44: Louis Diamond | Breakaways

    Making the decision to breakaway from a wirehouse or larger firm can be a daunting one. There are many things to consider when making a move to independence. In this episode, Louis Diamond offers some important insights into that decision making process. Louis Diamond is president of Diamond Consultants and responsible for the day-to-day operations of the firm, with an eye towards future growth. After graduating magna cum laude with a BBA degree in finance and international business from George Washington University, Louis began his career at Ernst & Young, and later at Morgan Stanley and UBS. Louis is an author and contributor to the financial services media on industry news and trends, including The Wall Street Journal, Financial Planning magazine, Barron’s, The Washington Post, wealthmanagement.com, FundFire, RIABiz, ThinkAdvisor, Citywire, and On Wall Street. Louis is also co-host of the podcast Mindy Diamond on Independence. Advisors who go independent, they do it for many other reasons than just the economics. Math has to make sense. Your family has to be comfortable with it. You have to have the confidence that it’s the right move. But other factors, like having ultimate flexibility and control, and building a business, those factors have to be weighted pretty heavily…” Louis Diamond

I really feel like firms that can be crisp on what makes them different and what their value proposition is to clients makes a big difference. Firms that run efficiently and have efficiently run practices, so not over-leveraged, not over-technologized, not overstaffed. carry a higher multiple, and I think at the end of the day, the practitioners of the firms looking to sell, need to be able to articulate […]
