MY ADVICE ARCHITECT®

Design flexible, customizable investment strategies using the My Advice Architect® platform

 

My Advice Architect is an agile confluence of portfolio management, technology and client presentation features—backed by support from a variety of internal resource teams and wealth management consultants—empowering you to give your clients what they expect: a polished vision and clear implementation plan of how you can help them achieve their goals.

FEE FOR SERVICE

Take a fee-for-service approach to grow and enhance client relationships

 

Expand your value-added services to existing clients and increase your appeal to a new generation of clients by offering services that create longer-term relationships. Cetera is partnering with AdvicePay to provide an easy way for you to offer a fee-for-service billing model, opening up your practice to new opportunities for growth.

 

Using a fee-for-service model allows you to provide financial guidance that doesn’t hinge on market performance. You’re able to profitably provide new choices for financial guidance.

CLEARING

Summit’s advisors leverage Pershing LLC, a Bank of New York Company, to execute their securities business and manage their fee-based practice.

QUESTIONS TO CONSIDER WHEN CHOOSING PLATFORMS

Regardless of which platform you choose, there are several questions you may wish to consider. Because of the wide range of fee-based programs available, you’ll have to make some important decisions regarding what type of account(s) you’ll want to set up.

  • Will I personally manage the fee-based business?
  • Will my client, with my assistance, manage the account?
  • Will my client rely upon a third-party professional manager?
  • What products will fund the portfolios?
  • Do I personally wish to be an asset manager or an asset gatherer?
  • Do I need “discretion?”
  • Which clearing platform offers the best program(s) for my needs and the needs of my clients?
