Technology in the financial world is an ever-changing landscape that is constantly evolving to better serve the needs of clients. New technology and software offer many ways for advisors to help their clients in a more efficient manner. Advisors must learn how to adopt and leverage technology in order to keep up with the modern world. Financial advisors who use updated software to take care of the more tedious and prolonged tasks are able to spend more time with their clients to discuss the more important aspects of financial planning.
While technology can drastically improve the services of financial advisors and allow them to remain competitive, ensuring that they are leveraging the technology in the best way possible is crucial. Social media in particular is one area where both advisors and clients can run into problems. On platforms such as Instagram and Tik Tok, there has been a large surge in content related to finance. While this content is great for driving views and engagement, much of the information being relayed comes from unreliable and unaccredited sources, which spread misinformation that can be extremely harmful to the average person. Advisors should be wary of such content and educate their clients on where to look for information online. Advisors should focus mainly on adopting new technologies into their business processes; the longer they wait, the further behind they will fall.
