Over the past 12 months, we at The Network have seen the continued intersection of two items, Complaints and Complex products. In addition, as more of our advisors acquire practices, naturally they begin to make recommendations to clients that may be more in line with the personal investment philosophy and financial planning style of the new owner of the business. We have seen these changes in clients’ portfolios as well as product mix sometimes lead to complaints from clients because the long term relationship hasn’t been established as it was with the previous advisor. Our goal in the 1 hour webinar is to give everyone a quick update on the Complaints we are seeing at the OSJ level as well as alert you to resources and best practices you should be aware of with regard to Variable Annuities as they continue to be looked upon as complex products by our industry.
