Advisor360° Wins 2023 ThinkAdvisor LUMINARIES Award for Thought Leadership
Advisor360°’s Connected Wealth Report Recognized for Insights on Advisors’ Key Technology Issues
WESTON, Mass. – Dec. 12, 2023 – Advisor360°, a leading provider of integrated software and technology for enterprise wealth management firms, was selected as a 2023 LUMINARIES Award winner by ThinkAdvisor, an independent news organization that covers the business of financial advisors, registered investment advisors (RIAs) and wealth managers.
The award recognizes Advisor360° for outstanding achievement in firm thought leadership for its inaugural Connected Wealth Report. The Advisor360° 2022 Connected Wealth Report surveyed 300 advisors and executives at enterprise wealth management firms on the role that technology plays in their business. The report’s key finding – that 65 percent of advisors have lost business due to outdated technology – was a wakeup call to the industry when it was revealed last year.
“We’re honored that our market research was recognized in this year’s LUMINARIES awards,” said Cynthia Stephens, Vice President of Marketing for Advisor360°. “Advisor360° wanted to establish a guide to help wealth management firms benchmark their journey of digital transformation to attract and retain advisors. The industry response has exceeded our expectations.”
The Connected Wealth Report was born out of a deep desire to better understand the attitudes of advisors on their use of technology. Advisor360° achieved quantifiable insights around how technology enables advisors across the wealth management industry to conduct business, grow their customer base and serve clients.
More than half (58%) of the 300 respondents surveyed by Advisor360° classified their existing technology as “modern,” but only 3 percent called it “integrated and innovative.” The remainder — 39 percent — believed they needed an upgrade. Respondents with modern technology were 50 percent more likely to report growth in new client assets and 33 percent more likely to get client referrals, compared to those who said their technology was outdated.
“Advisors’ biggest concerns about their existing platforms are around the lack of automation and functionality,” said Darren Tedesco, President of Advisor360°. “It’s why we continue to focus on delivering greater operational efficiencies — whether through connecting our digital onboarding tools with third-party proposal generation tools, seamless reporting across products or AI capabilities.”
The ThinkAdvisor LUMINARIES Awards recognize individuals and firms for their creativity and bold steps to push the industry and clients' best interests forward. This year’s award winners were announced on November 28, 2023, in New York City.
