Your clients think highly of you – they couldn’t entrust their financial futures to you otherwise. That means that when they’re in difficult situations, they’ll turn to you even if the problem isn’t really related to planning. For instance, they could be having trouble dealing with a government department after a loved one dies.

Difficult situations aside, clients depend on you – and the entire financial system — to act in their best interests every day. There are many ways that’s already happening, but there are also places the industry can do better.
