WSR’s Favorite Misanthrope James Miller’s Pick of the Wildest and Weirdest Industry News Stories, Plus Tech-Driven Employee Compliance Best Practices
To My Fellow WSR Community Members:
Contributing Editor James Miller’s endless reservoir of misanthropic sentiment never fails to amaze me, and I’ve worked with many unique personalities over the years.
Inevitably, James seems most excited about taking point with our regular Bizarre Industry Bazaar compilations of the weirdest news from across the wealth management industry – And his choices for this latest piece are definitely unique, to say the least.
But it’s not all hilarity and nonsense over here. Those of you looking for more serious fare won’t be disappointed with the rest of this week’s issue. Here’s what we have to offer:
- Bizarre Industry Bazaar – As noted, James Miller brings together some of the wildest news stories about our industry, with the lead item in his compilation about a financial advisor accused of a wrongdoing who literally jumped into a lake in the winter to escape arrest. Spoiler alert: His exit strategy didn’t work.
- Digital Domain – Amy Kadomatsu, CEO of financial services employee compliance software provider ComplySci outlines her thoughts on best practices for bridging the gab between collecting data…and actually using the data to drive desired outcomes.
- Health & Wealth – Surprise medical bills from hospital visits where everything was supposed to happen in network are a bone of contention for people across the country. And within our industry, for owners of independent wealth management businesses, these surprise bills can be especially disruptive. Chris Paulitz, Head of Strategic Initiatives at the Financial Services Institute, discusses how FSI’s CoveredAdviser program can address this issue.
