Plus Our Weekly Recruitment Roundup, An Exploration Of Options-Based ETFs, The Wealthtech Leader Of The Month, A New Executive Aimed At The Independent Channel And This Month’s Bizarre Industry Stories

To My Fellow WSR Community Members:

In the home stretch!

We’re in the home stretch past Thanksgiving, fast approaching the year end, which means many things – multiple holidays and gatherings occur in December leading up to the reflections and resolutions of New Year’s Eve, retailers hawk their wares with discounts, and the C-suite engages in strategic planning and budgeting.

In wealth management, of course, we’re not only planning for our firms and ourselves, but most importantly, we’re ensuring the financial details are right for our clients when we flip the calendar to January.

In the holiday spirit, we bring you a focus on philanthropy that takes the discussion deeper than just charity deductions, into client engagement, advanced tax strategy and a motivated workplace. In a different spirit, our editor James Miller gives us his nihilistic take on the holidays in his monthly roundup of bizarre industry news.

We also bring you an exploration of options-based ETFs and how an advisor might deploy them for clients, our weekly recruitment news roundup, a wealth management holding company doubles down on the independent channel and our monthly wealthtech roundup highlighting the WSR Wealthtech Leader of the Month.

Winners announced soon!

Also, don’t forget to keep an eye out for next week’s announcement of the winners of the WSR Wealth Exemplar Awards!

This Week’s Issue

Here’s what we have on tap this week:

Still strong?
Grouchy for the holidays
  • Looking for a grouchy spin on the holidays? In this month’s Bizarre Industry Bazaar, our James Miller relates an industry roundup of judgmental stories including Finra barring an advisor over football ticket reimbursements; the CFP Board’s license revocation of a rude planner; Dave Ramsey’s views on workplace judgment, fornication and shrimp; and economists rooting for the Phillies to lose the World Series, as well as Gisele and Tom’s losses in the FTX scandal.
Cutting taxes
  • How do you excite employees while cutting taxes for clients? In Upmarket, Hayley Wood Bates, a Financial Advisor atSignature Estate & Investment Advisors, discusses philanthropic giving beyond the typical charity deduction – including advanced tax strategies, exciting and engaging clients, encouraging a happier workplace and attracting the next generation of professionals to your firm.
