Want Deeper Client Relationships While Increasing Productivity and Saving Time?
By now, you have probably read any number of industry articles about outsourcing for advisors and advisory firms. In fact, you’ve likely seen your fair share of thought pieces from the team here at Dynamic Advisor Solutions. For those already familiar with Dynamic, you probably are already familiar with what we provide. For those who are not, we are a RIA that exists solely to support the businesses of independent advisors and advisory firms by allowing them to outsource important and very necessary functions for operating an efficient practice that can adapt to the rapid and inevitable changes taking place in our industry.
From time to time, we will even share the successes of our advisors (see Two Years Post Transition, for example). While anecdotal testimony is a great way to illustrate the synergies, productivity, and success that advisors are finding, the results of a study released by Fidelity, late in February, confirm recent results from other custodian’s surveys and the Cerulli Report. It provides substantive and authoritative evidence that advisors and firms are having a positive experience with outsourcing.
According to the Fidelity survey, 43% of the 383 advisors that participated in the survey confirmed that their firm was outsourcing “some business functions”. The top three functions that are being outsourced are;
- IT/Technology (48%),
- Investment Management and Portfolio Construction (40%) and
- Legal and Compliance (37%).
For Technology and Compliance, the top reason for outsourcing was a lack of internal experience. For Investment Management, the top reason was to create more value for clients.
The study goes on the report that 84% of those outsourcing indicated they had a successful experience. The top reasons cited for the successful experience were;
- Helped save time (77%),
- Helped increase productivity (66%),
- Helped optimize efficiency (57%) and
- Allowed firm to focus on deepening client relationships (53%).
