Did you know that 77% of advisors report having lost business due to inadequate technology to interact with clients during the pandemic? The pandemic also showed that 71% of Americans think their financial planning needs improvement.
For Shufro Rose, an independent wealth management firm headquartered in New York, NY, a focus on technology and evolving financial planning services is continuing to enhance its daily work life and the client experience.

When clients can see a complete picture of their wealth while working with you on creating a goals-based plan, the result can help them achieve financial wellness. Here are four tips from Shufro Rose to help RIAs evolve their practice with technology:
- Fully embrace your tech tools. While some might look at new technology as a way to replace old systems, it’s critical to take advantage of all that a new platform can offer. Work closely with your technology partner’s support team to get a sense of tips and best practices. Institute processes and training to maximize effective adoption of technology.
- Explore integrated solutions. With financial planning solutions that can respond to specific client needs, you can uncover more opportunities. And when goals-based planning is combined with a complete picture of your client’s wealth, you can move from financial planning to investment management with ease and consistency.
- Enhance immediate and transparent communications. Industry-leading technology can help your clients engage digitally, thus enhancing the overall experience. By utilizing Tamarac’s Client Portal, your team can meet with clients – either in-person or virtually – and discuss important account details in real-time.
- Ensure firmwide integration. Build an internal team dedicated to your technology platform’s governance and adoption. With this team’s leadership, technology will then cascade seamlessly to your broader organization.
