Plus, Top Independent FA Group / Hybrid RIA and Business Development Leader of the Year Awards And Top Newsmakers For The Past 60 Days
To My Fellow WSR Community Members:
As we head out of the Thanksgiving holidays towards the end of the year, it’s manifestly apparent that the wealth management space’s hectic pace of activity – across M&A, financial advisor recruiting and executive leadership buildout – is continuing without pause.
But before we get into what we have on tap for this week’s issue, here’s a reminder that we have officially launched our WSR Growth & Innovation Awards, with our first two award categories open for submissions: Independent financial advisor group / hybrid RIA group of the year, and business development leader of the year.
For more information, please visit our awards section here.
In the meantime, here’s what we have on tap for this week:
- In our Digital Domain section, Sander Ressler of Essential Edge talks about the single biggest crypto blind spot that could pose an existential risk to wealth management firms and their financial advisors: Errors & Omissions (E&O) insurance policies that don’t cover crypto investment blow-ups.
- Ever the curmudgeon, James Miller, Contributing Editor & Research Analyst, has once again compiled a selection of the some of the wealth management industry’s weirdest and wildest stories in our Bizarre Industry Bazaar section. Can dead people trade stocks? Find out here!
- The top of December is as good a time as any to take stock and see what the key drivers of news have been for our industry until now, and get a sense of why certain stories should be of interest for broader industry reasons. Michael Madden, Contributing Editor & Research Analyst, does just that in our latest Newsmakers Roundup.
As always, please share content that is of interest to you with your industry friends, colleagues and other contacts, especially via LinkedIn.
We’re starting to build our editorial calendar for 2022, and your feedback and suggestions on what you would like to see more of would be welcomed!
As a digital insights, analysis and commentary destination shaped by wealth management industry leaders, for wealth management industry participants, we want our content to be shaped by what’s important to you.
Thanks so much to you, the members of our WSR community, for your ongoing support and engagement!
