[05:41] - "At the end of the day, an advisor and a client need to talk. Algorithms aren't human beings. They just tell you how to optimize what's going on. You’ve got to ask them questions and you have to have a real dialogue often with clients that don't fully understand what it is they're trying to solve." - Jack Sharry
[20:02] - "More people are retiring today with more money and more complexity than at any point in history. So, a tidal wave of assets and complexity are driving our business for the foreseeable future." - Jack Sharry
[20:13] - "Digital and human advice are coming together on comprehensive advice platforms. And the job of the underlying algorithms is to identify the next best actions. Strategy is a start, but the ultimate job of these platforms is to coordinate implementation across the household and to determine the next best thing to do to improve financial outcomes." - Jack Sharry
