PLANADVISER Weekend Newsdash
Week ending September 22nd, 2017
NOTE FROM THE EDITOR
Happy Friday, readers! This weekend’s mailing focuses on practice management. We discover that many asset managers and broker/dealers do not trust compliance programs. Sponsors are looking for more services from their third-party administrators. You may be surprised to learn that only 19% of financial advisers are women, which is why some firms are proactively looking to hire more women. Some advisory practices are centralizing the investment management function and finding that it leads to better performance and lessened risk of litigation.
