OUTSOURCED PARAPLANNING SERVICES
As a financial advisor, your business depends on delivering highly personalized services to your clients who trust you with their life savings.
TruthfuIly, much of the day-to-day work of a modern financial planning business is technology driven, and many tasks — such as basic research, entering data into models, and preparing documents — do not have to be done by a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER". Many firms rely on paraplanners to handle these responsibilities.
But hiring and retaining quality paraplanners is chaIlenging. That's why outsourcing can be the best way for many financiaI planning businesses to meet their paraplanning needs.
Outsourcing gives you access to professional paraplanners who are trained to hand ie much of the time consuming, data-intensive work that goes into building a financial plan as efficiently and seamlessly as handling it in house.
Outsourcing your paraplanning needs helps to control expenses and gives you more time and flexibility to give your clients the expertise and personalized services that onIy you can provide.
