Learning Center Experience
By Heather Luea, Academic Department Chair Published December 2013
One of the hats wealth managers wear is that of a financial
planner. Financial planning specifically focuses on the client side of
investing. Planners traditionally meet with clients, educate clients about
investment opportunities, and work through a complete, financial plan that
includes but is not limited to retirement planning. Traditionally, clients
worked directly with a planner in face-to-face meetings that required detailed
discussions about the client’s life. The better a planner knows the client, the
better the planner can tailor a plan that matches the client’s goals and risk
tolerances. Technology is changing the way financial planning is being done. “Robo-advisors”
are becoming widely available to clients and are changing the landscape of the
industry. Face-to-face meetings are no longer required as investors can now get
financial “advice” online and on the cheap!
Other industries have seen the same transformation, although
with less optimistic results. For example, travel agents have become virtually
extinct as large, discount websites have allowed the everyday consumer to book
extensive vacations in a matter of minutes. In the banking industry, many of
the tasks performed routinely by bank tellers are now being done through ATMs. There
are a host of other examples, and the financial planning industry is no
exception. As “robo-advisors” begin to encroach on our territory, there are
several considerations for clients seeking advice and professionals in this
It is unlikely that “robo-advisors” will eliminate the need
for financial planners. In fact, financial planning continues to be one of the
high-growth careers. This is an opportunity for financial planners to
distinguish their skills and emphasize the benefits of working with living,
breathing advisors. After all, when I want to do more than just get cash, I see
a teller and avoid the ATMs.
