SHIFT  In The Wealth Management Industry

GUIDANCE FOR THE DIGITAL AGE

What was once a predictable, stable corner of the financial services industry has now become a hotbed of new technology innovation, increased competition and tighter regulation—all driven by a focus on helping the millions of retiring baby boomers meet their financial goals in a world without company pensions, with declining government support and with a volatile global market. This generation, and the generations that follow, will need financial advice and guidance more than ever, yet most are confused as to whom they can truly rely on.

One Size DOESN”T Fit All

DIGITAL SOLUTIONS TO MEET CLIENT DEMAND

Disruptive innovators like Uber, Netflix, Airbnb and Spotify have redefined consumer expectations for how they interact with products and service providers—including their financial advisor. Clients now demand personalized, interactive and digitally-enabled wealth management experiences on their own terms. If an advisor or firm cannot deliver a best-in-class digital experience, then a competitor soon will.

SERVICES WITH THE ADVISOR MIND

Help CLIENTS Get to Know Their Money

FINANCIAL PLANNING

The Ashton Thomas financial planning system is a cloud-based, intuitive, fully-integrated and interactive planning interface. It features multiple comparative options, tax projections, Social Security optimization, sequence-of-returns risk, stress testing, budgeting, cash flows and much more to help your clients make important decisions and then put them into motion.

The Ashton Thomas Fiduciary EDGE™

WORKPLACE RETIREMENT SOLUTIONS

As a wealth advisor, you often run into business owners and employers who need help with retirement solutions not only for themselves, but for their employees. Ashton Thomas has a whole division dedicated to this segment of the advisory business that you can plug right into. Our fiduciary services for employers help ensure they’re offering the right type of plan, managed and overseen properly by experienced professionals. Ashton Thomas can help you determine which type of defined benefit plan is suitable for your client, and offer you the tools you need to open up and support this whole new segment of business.

Get and Stay ORGANIZED

CRM, CUSTOMER RELATIONSHIP MANAGEMENT

CRM software allows you to get to know and understand client needs in a highly-intuitive way, beginning at the point of prospecting. It is about gathering information and using it to more effectively engage with prospects—winning business through demonstrated relevance, understanding and affinity. It is about developing a thorough understanding of existing client needs and interests, and using this knowledge to develop portfolios with a more expanded approach than just AUM or risk profile alone. Most importantly, a CRM system allows you to build and manage strong client relationships over the long term.

Institutional-Quality Portfolio Allocation STRATEGIES

INVESTMENT SOLUTIONS

To attract and retain the best clients, you need high-quality programs. Compiling portfolio allocation strategies requires a great deal of due-diligence and oversight–and time and resources you may not have. We offer advisors an array of strategies that include Advisor Directed, Traditional SMA (Separately Managed Accounts), UMA (Unified Managed Accounts), exchange-traded funds (ETFs), mutual funds, alternative investments and combinations of these for growth and income objectives. Ashton Thomas provides the platform you need to outsource non-revenue generating activities and enable you to spend more time on client relationships and business growth.

Putting YOU in Control

TRADING & ACCOUNT MANAGEMENT

You can control each client’s portfolio composition from anywhere based on your knowledge of client desires, economic conditions or changes to managers or investment philosophy. Our institutional-strength trading tools with multi-custodial connectivity allow you to trade, rebalance and manage client accounts with efficient dashboards that incorporate alerts for key tasks. Manage every aspect of a client account, all from a single screen, including straight-through trade order management for equities, ETFs, mutual funds and options including support for Limit, Stop, Stop Limit, Trailing Stop and GTC/D orders.

INDIVIDUALIZED Investment Proposal > Account

PROPOSAL GENERATION & ACCOUNT OPENING

Our investment proposal generation tool allows advisors to analyze and establish a client’s risk tolerance based on current holdings, and construct an optimal portfolio leveraging institutional-quality research and product catalog. The proposal tool is seamlessly integrated with our account opening workflow, to make turning a prospect into a client efficient and easy. And because we believe that Investment Policy Statements aren’t a one-and-done event, we include lifecycle management options to help you keep your information relevant and timely.

CUSTOMIZED Reports for You, and Your Clients

REPORTING & PERFORMANCE

Effective client collaboration relies on clear, concise reporting, and our performance and client reports help advisors better communicate trends and insights. Our robust back-end and front-end reporting user interface allows you to monitor your total book of business, and allows you to generate individual, customized client performance reports for meetings and client portfolio reviews, including performance, holdings, balances, realized and unrealized gains/losses, activity and drift.

Institutional-Quality Research at YOUR Fingertips

RESEARCH/DUE DILIGENCE

Our research team can be used in conjunction with an advisor’s existing research or as a complete replacement. Our advisors have access to this research via an online investment research portal or it can be integrated with any module in the wealth management technology platform. Ashton Thomas’ internal and external investment research groups perform ongoing manager research processes supporting separately managed account (SMA), unified managed account (UMA), mutual fund wrap (MFW), and exchange traded fund (ETF) strategies and investment vehicles.

Eliminating What Keeps YOU Up at Night

PRACTICE MANAGEMENT

Whether you currently work for a traditional wirehouse, bank, broker-dealer or insurance agency, Ashton Thomas’ team has transitioned many successful financial advisors in a quick manner, allowing them to focus on communicating with their clients and growing their wealth management businesses. Our transition team is dedicated to you. We offer consulting to help you achieve your true potential, and access to every level of our financial expertise and support. And we don’t stop there. We also offer practice succession planning to help ensure your clients and family are taken care of should you want to retire or if something unexpected happens.
