“Performance, Trust & Best Interests: Marketing to Financial Advisors”



FCS New York will stage a panel discussion at our April luncheon focused on Marketing to Financial Advisors.  The event's program will open with a presentation by FUSE Research Network.

Two years ago, FCS Boston addressed this topic, with FUSE Research again leading the charge.  The result was a compelling and memorable conversation about the challenges faced by the advisor community and the challenges faced by the asset management firms who cater to them.

With all the turbulence in the markets and the advisor marketplace over the past two years, we expect our New York event to further the discussion with new insights and strategies.

Join us as our panel delves into the experience and expertise it takes today to galvanize relationships with these all important intermediaries to the world of personal and institutional wealth.

Sponsorships are available for this event. Contact FCS CEO Kevin Windorf.
