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.

CHOICE OF CLEARING PLATFORMS

Summit’s advisors have the option of two clearing platforms to execute their securities business and manage their fee-based practice. Through First Clearing* or Pershing LLC, a Bank of New York Company, you can choose either or both firms to execute trades and process your fee-based business.

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?
